Mickie Henson
Mickie has called Key West his home for more than 23 years. He came to the island after being hired as the manager of Teasers, back when it was on Truman Avenue. Although he spent a number of years traveling for his work as a professional wrestling referee, he has had Key West as his home base ever since. Mickie has a real love for many of the things that make Keys living so special.

Mickie's Take

What do you like to do in your leisure time?

Fish. Fish. Fish.

Weather permitting, that's where I am. I'm at a point in my life now where I like to really take it easy. This is a good place to do that.

When people come to visit you, where do you like to take them?

When friends are in town, Sloppy Joe's is a must.

And, even though I don't go out all that much, there are some pretty cool bars in town. The Green Parrot is one. They have great music there. Schooner Wharf is a great local bar.

All cool places to hang out. I tend to go out more when there are people visiting.

There's anything and everything people could want to see on Duval Street. I like to take people to Cowboy Bill's Honky Tonk Saloon too. That's another good spot. They have good music there and I know the owner, so that's always good.

If someone comes to town and is looking for something really unique to do, what do you recommend?

Well, that's kind of hard to say. Everyone's idea of unique is really different. There is such a wide variety of things people can see and do, that's a tough one. Anything on the water is great. Fishing, of course. It's one of the best spots in the world for fishing. Other than that, diving, snorkeling jetskiing, kayaking – everything imaginable is available for people.

In Key West you can party as hard as you can til 4 AM or you can just lay back and relax and do nothing. Whatever you want, you can find it. Well, almost. It's not quite Vegas yet…
