Margaritaville Casino In Atlantic City May Not Happen

An article in the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the sale of the Trump Marina Casino to Coastal Development LLC is in jeopardy due to a lack of secured financing:

Three bankruptcy filings and Donald J. Trump’s resignation as board chairman of Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc. have thrown the casino company into turmoil.

Finalizing the sale of Trump Marina Casino Hotel looks more remote than ever – but not because of those reasons.

The interested buyer, Coastal Development L.L.C., of New York, has not secured the financing to close the deal May 26 – the targeted closing date, according to those familiar with the sale negotiations.

Analysts of the gaming industry predict the sale will not happen any time soon, because of tight credit and the declining financial performance of the property.

“Coastal Marina [an affiliate of Coastal Development] is closely monitoring news and events in Atlantic City and needs to fully evaluate the developing situation and its effects on Coastal Marina’s interests,” said Charlie Leonard, spokesman for Coastal Development.

Coastal said it planned to transform the Trump Marina into a Margaritaville-themed casino using entertainer Jimmy Buffett.

M’Ville Key West Writeup On Last Week’s Concert

The Margaritaville Key West website has a writeup of Jimmy Buffett’s private show that he played last Thursday night. The article mentions that Buffett has been in Mac McAnally’s studio in Muscle Shoals, AL working on new songs:

The current state of the country prompted our troubled troubadour to take pen in hand and put his spin on the state of the union, noting in particular that “we have a lot to drink about.” And since drinking was involved, what better place than Key West to premier the new song.

Key West’s current living legend embodies the spirit of our islands infamous forerunners in the guise of shipwreck salvors, road weary writers and bar owners; it’s safe to say that best-selling author Jimmy Buffett has certainly found treasure in Margaritaville. So he and Mac came into town on Lincoln’s Birthday to share the new song, spend some time with old friends and favor the Margaritaville crew with Key West classics, the songs we know by heart.
