Krewe Events and Parties for the week of Fantasy Fest 2018
FRIDAY OCT 19th
We're having a Mad Hatter Party at Capt. Tony's at 8:00pm.
The theme for the early birds of Fantasy fest. Let's get in the silly mood for what is to come later in the week by wearing your Silly, Krazy, or Outrageous hat and come out and join us at the unofficial "Mad Hatters party"! Just because you show up early to Key West doesn't mean that you can't start showing your fantasy fest spirit. Go all out and show everyone how many of the Krazykrewe are already in town. Last year we had a pretty good amount of krewe members show up at Capt. Tony's to get the party started.

SATURDAY OCT 2oth
Little Black Dress Party at Capt. Tony's at 8pm
Wear your little/sheerest black dress or any color(if you are a rebel) you like but it has to be little to start the beginning of Fantasy Fest week right. The krewe keeps showing up earlier in the week to Key West and with no theme on Saturday night the krewe's own Hula suggested we do a theme night on Saturday night for those krewe members already in Key West to get everyone in the mood of Fantasy Fest. That is how most of our parties and themes have started by krewe members just talking and making suggestions on our chats monday night at 9pm EST.

SUNDAY OCT. 21st
Krewe Meet & Greet and costume swap at the Galleon Sunset Tiki Bar Sunday from 1-4pm 617 Front St.
No costumes necessary. Last year we had over 150 krewe members show up to this meet & greet and everyone had a great time getting to meet all those krewe members they have been chatting with during the year on our Forums and on the Monday nights chats. This is the perfect opportunity to meet krewe members in a relax atmosphere and a beautiful location right on the Gulf of Mexico and the sunset views from here are spectacular.
We will be having a costume swap, if you have costumes that you don't use anymore, don't quite fit right bring them to the meet and greet and we will have a table setup for costume swapping.
We will be passing out the krewe badge and merchandise to those members that ordered one from the krewe store.
It will be good for 2-4-1 drinks(Domestic beer-Well drinks-Margaritas on the Rocks and Bloody Marys) at the Sunset Tiki bar all week long starting with the meet and greet.
Appetizers will be available to krewe members.

MONDAY OCT. 22nd
Rubber Ball at Capt. Tony's @ 8pm
Fetish night at Capt Tony's Dungeon will be a night to remember. Enter the Dungeon of Desires and get Kinky for a night you won't forget. Everyone knows that Monday night in Key West is Fetish night. This was started by Kelly's Bar & Grill as an unofficial party of Fantasy Fest and it's still put on by them every Monday night with multiple BDSM displays thru out their venue. Our own shy Dana is a performer there every year. The krewe started the Rubber Ball to compliment Kelly's fetish theme night. As all krewe members like to start their night and finish it at Capt. Tony's why not make the theme what everyone is already wearing. The little side room got turned in to a mini Dungeon with multiple BDSM equipment available to krewe members to play in and take pictures of their partners in their sexy costumes of the night. It has been such a success that some krewe members just stay the whole night a Capt. Tony's Monday night instead of battling the insane crowds at Kelly's.
Mario Edition Tutu Krawl Poker Run - Scooters meet at Shanna Key at 12:45pm, Walkers meet at Fat Tuesday's at 12:45pm
$10 a hand of poker. Best hand wins $100. Drawing for non-winners $50.
You only pay once at the first bar then get a card at each of the 5 bars. You can play as many hands as you want at $10 a hand(a hand includes 5 cards)
The krewe First raffle of the week will be done during the first krawl. We will be raffling cool prizes at each bar. The raffle tickets will be price as follows: 1/$5, 3/$10 and Arm Length for $20(Best Value).
Arm length is from the tip of your finger to the tip of your nose. To make it fun You don't have to use your own arm, you can choose some long arm person to get the best value for your buck.
We have streamline the process of passing out the cards, at the first bar you will get an envelope with your first card and 6 dots with your player number. At each stop you will pick out a card at random and place one of the dots on the card. At the end of the krawl whoever has the best hand wins $100. Then we will place all the cards of everyone else in a bag and choose 1 card for a second prize of $50. Hold on to your envelope because that's how we know if the card we pulled is yours. The card dot has to match the envelope dot. No more signing cards at bars, now all you do is place your player dot on the card as you pick it up at each bar. Easy Peazy.
This is another krewe member suggested activity. Angie mention in chat back in 2012 that they do a scooter crawl back in their hometown and that is a good time and we should plan an activity during the day for the krewe since most activities occur at night time. We had no idea what this suggestion would turned into in just a couple of years. Our first year(2012) we had 50 krewe members joined us for the inaugural Scooter Krawl, of course our krewe members showed up in costumes and Dan and James showed up with Tutus on, so that became the dress code for subsequent scooter krawls. The second year(2013) we double the amount of krewe members(114) that joined us for the krawl then the 3rd year(2014) we had a really bad storm but that didn't deter the krewe and we had 113 members joined us for the krawl even though it was raining cats & dogs. We even had 10 scooters do the krawl in the rain. Our 4th year(2015) we expected maybe around 150 members since the weather was great but when we showed up at Salute at the beach for the scooter meet up, There were about 45 scooters waiting to join us on the scooter krawl, in the first 3 years we only had about 10 to 15 scooters in the krawl and to see 45 scooters waiting that was a sight to see. We do the scooter krawl down Duval and meet the Walkers at Tattoo's and Scars and when we got there, there were about 200 krewe members waiting for us to start the poker run. At the end of the day we had about 280 krewe members do the Tutu superheroes scooter krawl poker run. Our 5th year(2016) scooters met up at Rum Row at the beginning of the island and we had 47 scooters show up for what it was the longest route yet for scooters, This was the first year where scooters and walkers would only meet at the last bar, we have gotten too big for our own good, no bar is big enough to handle close to 300 krewe members at one time so we split the scooter and walkers and each group does their own bar krawl with both groups coming together at the last bar. That worked out great. God only knows how big our krewe bar krawl will be this year.

Party in Plaid at Capt. Tony's Tuesday @ 8pm
The krewe's own event that keeps getting bigger every year. Capt. Tony's is the only place to be Tuesday night as we celebrate the 15th anniversary of Party in Plaid. This was another krewe member suggestion. Back on 2002 Frank and Joanne had decided to show up the following year in Plaid on Tuesday night as there wasn't a theme yet for Tuesday night after much discussion thru out the year it was decided to show up at Capt. Tony's since that bar wasn't busy at all and thus starting the tradition of making Capt. Tony's our home base during the week of Fantasy Fest. In 2005 we approach Capt. Tony's management about making Party in Plaid an official event and the rest is history.
Started by Krewe founder Frank in 2003.
WEDNESDAY OCT. 24th
ABC Contest, Meet & Greet at Sandbar Sports Grill at 1pm NEW LOCATION
Come to Sandbar Sports Grill on 511 Greene St.(across from sloppy joes) and Join the krewe as We all judge your Amazing Creativity in designing your costumes made with Anything But Clothes. This started after hosting our annual Volleyball games at Southernmost Beach Cafe for about 9 yrs. More krewe members were showing up but not many wanted to play volleyball so we decided to change from a game to a theme contest. The first year(2014) we had bad weather but still manage to get about 11 couples and many more spectators. We had a great time seeing the krewe creativity in designing their ABC costumes. 2nd year(2015) we had a bigger pool of contestants and spectators. Chris took over as MC of the contest and got prizes for the winners in the following categories: Best couple, Best female and Best male ABC costume. Our 3rd year we moved locations to Pinchers on Duval and we outgrew the place right away. We packed Pinchers for our ABC Contest, We had a lot of participants and as always the creativity of the krewe members was off the hook. This is a growing event for the krewe and this year no doubt we will have the biggest crowd to date at Sandbar Sports Grill.
Hosted/MC by Stopher. Started by Krewe member Mr. Something in 2014.
