With Memorial Day upon us, summer is now knocking on our door. And one of the best things about summer in Key West is the opening of lobster season which is celebrated through Lobsterfest, the biggest event of the summer! August 8 through the 11th, lobster lovers will come to Key West by the thousands to join the celebration and enjoy some sweet Florida lobster. Restaurants like Bagatelle and Shor that are sponsoring the event will have booths set up during the street fair or specials in the restaurant to showcase this tasty crustacean.
