Here's the famous Sloppy Joe's Bar located in the town of Key West, FL. Sloppy Joe's originated as a saloon back on December 5, 1993 when Prohibition was repealed. Ernest Hemingway was a regular customer at the once called Russell's Bar and encouraged the name change to Sloppy Joe's.
Today, Sloppy Joe's still remembers its Hemingway ties and hosts the annual Hemingway Look-Alike Contest. In addition, the Hemingway Days Festival began here at Sloppy Joe's.
