The planning is done, the excitement has been building for months and now tomorrow is the big day. September 22, Duval Street in Key West will be flooded with people partying with a purpose. That purpose being the Reef Relief organization. Save the fishys as I like to say. The reefs around Key West and the Florida Keys have taken a beating throughout the years, we would like to do what we can to help protect them and keep this natural beauty safe.
If you are joining us this weekend here is a schedule of the events from Friday to Sunday. Feel free to jump in on the fun at any time. Hit me up on twitter (@RumShopRyan) if you have any questions during the weekend. Cheers!

CRAWL T-SHIRTS – We encourage everyone to wear their Conched in Key West Bar Crawl t-shirts that you received with your registration. Great for pictures and fun to see a sea of Green as we crawl our way down Duval. Plus it makes it much easier for us to track everyone that is a part of the event. If for some reason you can’t or don’t want to wear your shirt be sure to have on your wristband.
