The infamous, fun-filled, action-packed annual Key West Race Week send-off party for Chicago racers continues…

KWRW was originally founded by Chicago sailors, and over the years Chicago has had a very strong presence represented among the competing boats. Chicago participation seems to have declined in the past few years, however. Perhaps that is partial inspiration for the small name change for the Key West party. Anyhow, the annual Key West party in Chicago is always a fun gathering of sailors and friends.

Hope to see everyone there!

Here’s the announcement, courtesy Tony Bowker of Goose Island Brewpubs:

Goose Island Brewpubs are once again hosting a winter ‘ice breaker’ with the support of our friends at Mount Gay Rum. The invitation follows. I hope to see you there.

Sailor, relieve your cabin fever at the umpteenth annual Key West Race Week Kick-Off Party. This is for everyone with a Key West attitude, not only for those lucky enough to have a KW ride, or sporting enough to have sent their own boat.

Please note the change of venue to:

Goose Island Wrigleyville, 3535 North Clark St.
(Red Line to Addison or park in the lot on Addison opposite Wrigley Field)

Friday, January 11th – 6pm
Map: link

As usual, you can drink Mount Gay Rum cocktails for a cause and enjoy special pitchers of Goose Island’s ales, locally crafted form the waters of Lake Michigan.

Everyone welcome. Even power boaters! Just make sure they can navigate to Wrigleyville, not the pub on Clybourn.
