Jimmy Buffett’s latest Margaritaville Cafe opened Monday at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT. The Day and the Norwich Bulletin have articles on the grand opening:

Mixed in with the executives and tribal members in suits, there were self-proclaimed “Parrotheads” donning their usual regalia: colorful leis and Hawaiian shirts in every color of the rainbow.

The pack of proclaimed Jimmy Buffett fans gathered Monday morning for the grand-opening of the entertainer’s only eatery in the Northeast.

”You can never have a bad time at Jimmy Buffett’s,” Mohegan Tribal Chairman Bruce “Two Dogs” Bozsum said. “So rock on.”

Globespotters Interviews Buffett in Paris

Matt Luna of the International Herald Tribune’s Globespotters spent some time with Jimmy Buffett while he was biking around Paris last week. He asked several reader-submitted questions, which we made you aware of last week.

Globespotters also has an audio/photo slideshow with pics of Buffett biking around Paris and audio of him describing his travel around Paris on a rental bike. Check it out here.

Here are some excerpts from the interview:

Pete Farmer from Kilbirnie, Scotland, wanted to know if Buffett had any plans to appear in the U.K. And Debbie, who lists the U.S.A. as her place of residence, asked about plans for any other shows outside the U.S.

“Yes, maybe next year. We have been thinking about it,” said Buffett. “Next year it could be a ‘He Went to Paris’ and a ‘He Went to London’.”

Buffett added that he has played in Hong Kong and Singapore, and is now “taking the guitar around like I used to do.”

“Next year I would like to go back to Asia, and maybe up to countries like Norway and Finland,” he said, adding that travel is “rewarding in the fact that I’m always looking for stories.” He said performing while traveling puts a different take on the experience.

==================

Annie from Maryland asked if Buffett had an “unfulfilled dream of adventure, like climbing Mt. Everest or going into space.” Buffett answered, “I’d go to outer space. I would like to ride on the shuttle, and I’m trying to stay in good shape to be the next old fart in space, after John Glenn.” He added that he would it be more fun to stow away on the shuttle but “that’s not possible.”

==================

Rayden, from Gold Coast, Australia and Billy from Melbourne wanted to know if Buffett planned to play concerts in Australia. “I am looking at it for early next year. Have not been there in almost 20 years, an am looking to get back. Stay tuned.”

==================

Steve Adams from North Carolina asked, “What do you think of the upcoming election? Whom do you plan on voting for?”

Buffett stressed his support for the candidacy of Senator Barack Obama several times during the conversation with Globespotters. Keep an eye out, and you just might see a Buffett appearance in support of the candidate.

==================

Ronnie Creger from Forest, Virginia, wanted to know what Buffett thought of Kenny Chesney “pushing his fans to act like Buffett fans at his shows, with tailgating and beach themes. ”

“Imitation is the best form of flattery,” Buffett said with a slight grin.
