Meet Zip and Chloe, May's Pets of the Month.
Ok, so we couldn't decide on just one pet of the month, so these two go paw in paw.
Zip and Chloe are part of the Cullen family and live in Greenville, SC. Zip is two years old and originally from Pelham, GA and Chloe was brought to the Cullen family this past Christmas from Santa Claus.These two precious pups love to play with each other, but their favorite time of the day is when their people come home.
Chloe is sweet, happy and playful all the time and jumps and wiggles like crazy when someone walks in the door. Zip is older and wiser but just as eager to greet you. He can be a little aloof of Chloe's shenanigans and definitely jealous of her if she gets the preferred spot on someone's lap.
They loved hanging out by the pool at Ambrosia where they got a lot of love from everyone. They really loved the attention they got everywhere in Key West where they felt like celebrities.
Thank you, Chloe and Zip, for being Ambrosia's pets of the month for May.
A donation will be made in the pups' names to an animal charity of their choice.
Now through May 12

Second Annual Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade
If one man’s junk is another man’s treasure, then the late Key Largo folk artist Stanley Papio was a treasure hunter extraordinaire.

Key West Theater Present: Big Head Todd and the Monsters
Big Head Todd and the Monsters are best known for their platinum-selling record Sister Sweetly, and from that record the hit song “Bittersweet,” but have also been fans of blues music since their first days together playing music in high school. In 1997 they recorded a song with John Lee Hooker for their album Beautiful World, but it was in 2011 that the band really delved into the blues with their first Big Head Blues Club project, 100 years of Robert Johnson, which featured guest appearances by BB King, Hubert Sumlin, Charlie Musselwhite, Honeyboy Edwards, and more. That album led to a limited number of tour dates under the Big Head Blues Club moniker that same year. “The Songs of Willie Dixon,” tribute is the next chapter in what seems to be becoming a new tradition for the band.
