    SPOTLIGHT on Lazy Days Restaurant

    Last updated 2 years ago

    We recently sat down with Chef Lupe & Michelle Ledesma, the owners of Lazy Days restaurant in Islamorada to interview them for a testimonial ad. Chef Lupe told us their story of falling in love with each other and the restaurant business:

    “My wife and I have been in the restaurant business since we were teenagers. We met while working together at the same restaurant in Key Largo, fell in love and eventually married. We started running our own restaurant and nine years ago, we took over the Lazy Days Restaurant.

    Recently, we decided to refinance the business, but our bank was unable to help us. Our friend Sam Nekhaila told us he was on the Keys Board at Community Bank and that they could help. He introduced us to Carlos and from day one, Carlos found us solutions. His hard work got us approved for a Small Business Administration loan and we couldn’t be happier!”

    Visit their website to see the full menu at: or visit them at Mile Marker 79, Oceanside to taste their award winning food. Reservations recommended: (305) 664-5256.

    "People's Choice Cocktail Competition" Winner

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Joshua Zajack, a 22 year old education student from Key Largo, was the winner of the "People's Choice Cockail Competition" at the Key Largo Chamber's Cook Off. The cocktail contest was in honor of the 100th anniversary of the completion of Henry Flagler's Florida Keys Over-Sea Railroad.

    Joshua grew up in New Jersey, and remembers drinking warm apple cider on cold days. This inspired him to create "Flagler's Rusty Spike." The adult beverage is made of equal parts apple cider, Goldschlager cinnamon shnapps and Laird's Applejack brandy. He garnished it with brown sugar to symbolize rust and a cinnamon stick as a railroad spike. Joshua received bragging rights as well as $100 cash. Congratulations Joshua!
