Jimmy Buffett’s At The Beachcomber to Open Early 2009

BuffettWorld reported back in February that Jimmy Buffett plans to open Jimmy Buffett’s At The Beachcomber at the Ohana Waikiki Beachcomber in Waikiki, Hawaii. The original plan was to open by the end of the year, but now the opening date is slated for early 2009:

It’s taking $15 million to build out 22,000 square feet for the new 400-seat Jimmy Buffett’s at the Beachcomber. And it will be every bit an adventure in paradise.

Simulated sunsets and rolling surf. The Hot Spot Bar where action will surely be volcanic. Ocean Waves Dining Booths for the North Shore vibe. You’ll enjoy music from up-and-coming local talent and food that’s not too complicated but full of flavor: fresh seafood, juicy burgers and casual island favorites. Cocktails will find tropical inspiration, too, with boat drinks, ice-cold brews and of course, signature margaritas.

Jimmy Buffett’s at the Beachcomber opens in early 2009.

The 2008 Year Of Still Here Tour continued Tuesday night with a show from the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California… a suburb of San Francisco.

The set list was largely unchanged, though the rarely-played “Coast of Marseilles” finished out the show as the final encore.

You can view the full set list here.

Did you attend the show? Share your comments on our Forum.

The final stop of the Year Of Still Here Tour is Saturday with the second of two shows at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

You can still get tickets for the final show by going to TicketMaster or Stubhub!

Update – The Mercury News has a review of the show here.
