Key West is chockablock full of Ernest Hemingway. His home is there, where he lived from 1931 to 1940 with his second wife, Pauline, and his two sons. Sloppy Joe’s Bar, a Hemingway watering place, holds an annual “look like Ernest Hemingway” contest to benefit charity each year on his birthday, July 22. I was there in Key West this year for the annual look like Ernest Hemingway competition. It is a giant and wild event. Lots of shouting and cheering and drinking seem to be its major elements. It appears all that is required is to be paunchy, white bearded and willing to attempt to speak something Hemingwayesque.
