Jimmy Buffett brings the Lounging at the Lagoon Tour to Detroit this weekend, playing a show at Comerica Park. It was announced today that promoters will host a day-long beach party downtown:

“It’s a simple formula: It’s about having fun,” says Lee Rifield of promoter Olympia Entertainment. “We’re really trying to create that environment Jimmy Buffett wants to be in.”

Among the frills at the pre-show party, which starts at 10 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot just north of Comerica Park:

• A 1,600-square-foot sand island with a tiki bar serving margaritas, along with a sand-diving game where contestants will turn up buried salt shakers redeemable for prizes.

• A sand beach with a stage featuring local bands Toast & Jam and Square Pegz.

• A beer tent serving Land Shark Premium Lager, the house beer for Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant chain.

• A Ferris wheel, midway games, misting stations, a photo lounge and an appearance by Land Shark’s FinMobile.

The lot, which recently hosted the main stage of the Downtown Hoedown, has a capacity of about 10,000.

Deal Finalized to Bring Margaritaville to Atlantic City

Philly.com reports that a deal has been struck to bring not one, but two Jimmy Buffett eating establishments:

According to the report, Resorts Atlantic City is entering into a multi-faceted deal with Buffet’s chain of casual dining-and-drinking spots. One element of the plan—which first surfaced last month—is the refurbishing of the Resorts-owned Central Pier, a long-decaying remnant of AyCee’s storied, pre-legal-gambling past. The pier will be the site of a Landshark Bar & Grill restaurant.

New to the drawing board is the planned construction of a Margaritaville Café inside Resorts. It is expected to replace the existing Breadsticks Café & Grill, the casino’s coffee shop, and the Beach Ball Café, which currently serves as a high-roller lounge. Both facilities front the Boardwalk.

President Obama Calls out Uncle Jim

posted July 13th, 2012 at 3:34 pm

by Josh Martin

Coral Reefer Band bass player Jim Mayer, who goes by the name Uncle Jim, was “called out” by President Obama today and Jim responded on his blog.

The president said “So just in case some of your friends or neighbors or Uncle Jim is a little stubborn, has been watching Fox News, if he thinks that, somehow I raised taxes, let’s just be clear, we’ve lowered taxes for middle class families…”

Here’s an excerpt from Uncle Jim’s blog:

Today, Uncle Jim Mayer stepped into the middle of an international media firestorm when he heard Obama falsely accuse him of being stubborn and watching Fox News.

Upon hearing the news, Uncle Jim responded: “Dear President Obama, let’s be REALLY clear, I don’t watch Fox News, I’m not stubborn, but I AM Funky as a Diaper!”

Uncle Jim further invited President Obama to join him on stage any time, anywhere he brings his anti-bullying message to children during his internationally acclaimed live shows…to set the record straight – and perhaps even sing a chorus of “IM4U.”
