Buffett to Perform at Everglades Rally in Tallahassee

March 24th, 2015

Next month Jimmy Buffett will perform an acoustic set in Tallahassee as part of the third annual Everglades Action Day.

The singer-songwriter, who often dips his toes into the waters of politics, will appear at a rally to “Save Florida’s Drinking Water” hosted by the Everglades Coalition. Everglades Action Day brings Floridians to Tallahassee to meet with lawmakers on the importance of the Everglades, which provides about 8 million Floridians with drinking water. Buffett will appear with fellow musicians Mac McAnally and Robert Greenidge.

It will be Buffett’s second appearance in Tallahassee within the past year. In October, he played a show for supporters of U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham during her congressional campaign.

Air Margaritaville Restaurant Coming to Miami International Airport

March 12th, 2015

Next month, air travelers moving through Miami International Airport will have a new dining option: Air Margaritaville restaurant.

The Jimmy Buffett-inspired Margaritaville eatery is set to open this summer on the second level of the airport’s Central Terminal, offering a menu of island-themed seafood, burgers, salads, sandwiches and tropical drinks.

Both restaurants will be located before security in the Central Terminal, giving all airport guests to access to the new offerings.

“Margaritaville and Viena are ideal fits for our airport customers and our community,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. González, in a statement. “Miami is the front door to the Florida Keys and the Caribbean, so the laid-back island lifestyle that Margaritaville represents is very familiar to locals. Likewise, Brazil is MIA’s top international market, so bringing in a popular brand that has served Brazilian diners for 40 years is a move that’s sure to resonate with our customers.”

The restaurants will be run by a U.S.-based subsidiary of Brazil’s leading multi-brand restaurant operator, IMC, airport officials said.
