Hemingway Look-alike Contest Rocks My Socks

If you live in South Florida, do I have the literary event for you!

Sloppy Joe's 32nd Annual Papa Look-alike Contest in Key West!

Who is "Papa," you ask?

Why, Ernest Hemingway, of course! 
Sloppy Joe's Bar in Key West will host its 32nd Annual Hemingway Look-Alike contest July 19-21, 2012. The contest is one of many events in Key West to celebrate the birthday of Ernest Hemingway and honor his work as author and sportsman.

The competition starts with the first preliminary round on Thursday, July 19, second preliminary round on Friday, July 20, and finals on Saturday, July 21.

From each preliminary round finalists are chosen. Last year's competition had 121 Look-Alikes taking the stage with 12 contestants from Thursday night preliminary and 15 from Friday night preliminary going on to the final round.

Look-Alikes are everywhere, it's a load of fun! Come early, get a good seat and watch the competition.
After the finals, the party spills over into the streets, where the Street Fair on Duval continues with food, drinks, entertainment and fun for everyone!

The infamous Hemingway Look-Alike Society invites you to join the Society. They will be at Sloppy Joe's to sign-up new members.

Now that you know what it's all about, you may be wondering about previous winners...

Please do marvel at these findings:

Man, do I wish I were in Key West.

This is fabulous.
