Jimmy Buffett’s vast array of products under the Margaritaville banner already includes eyewear, frozen foods, outdoor furniture, blenders, ice teas, rum, and much more. Beginning this summer, Margaritaville will partner with Romantix, Inc. for Margaritaville Pleasures, a line of adult products.

World-renowned singer/songwriter and author Jimmy Buffett is teaming up with Romantix, Inc., where Your Pleasure Is Our Passion™, to produce a signature line of adult products for the Margaritaville brand.

Take your partner to that “One Particular Harbour” with the FrenchTickler for the Night. She’ll be singing “I Have Found Me A Home” when you massage her with premium Treat Her Like A Lady massage oils. Having trouble performing for your “Railroad Lady?” Try the There’s Nothing Soft About Hard Times male enhancement tablets.

Margaritaville Pleasures isn’t just for hula girls. Ladies, send your sailor to the “Far Side of the World” with themed lingerie, including Sexy Parrot, Smart Woman (in A Real Short Skirt), and Mermaid in the Night.

And no Margaritaville adult-themed product line would be complete without the Life Is Just A Tire Schwing anatomically correct blowup doll. It’s the next best thing to “Flesh and Bone.”

Find your escape to Pleasure Island with Margaritaville Pleasures.

Look for Margaritaville Pleasures products this summer at Margaritaville.com and at pre-show tailgates around the country for Jimmy Buffett’s 2014 This One’s For You Tour.

Jimmy Buffett’s latest Margaritaville restaurant opened for business on Monday in Destin, Florida.

from The Destin Log:

With the cut of a ribbon, over-the-top margaritas and enough fanfare to make Mickey Mouse jealous, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville is ready to “let the fin begin” after Monday’s grand opening.

“I can’t begin to tell you how excited we are to be here,” said Flavio Yepo, the restaurant’s general manager.

The 27,000-square foot, harbor front restaurant is the newest edition to HarborWalk Village. The Buffett-inspired eatery was packed to the gills with hungry residents, news media and Parrot Heads.

With both indoor and outdoor seating, Margaritaville sits in the former home of Lucky Snapper along the harbor, and features enough seating for more than 400 guests.

Margaritaville has already hired and trained more than 200 employees to work in its Destin location.

As for whether the famed singer will make an appearance? You’ll just have to keep an eye and ear open as Buffett is known to play impromptu shows at his various restaurants nationwide.

Margaritaville Destin Nearing Grand Opening

The latest Margaritaville is opening in just 10 days. Margaritaville Destin at HarborWalk Village is nearing completion and will open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 am on Monday, February 17th.

The Destin Log has more: “‘It’s 5 o’ clock somewhere’ — and soon: Destin’s Margaritaville taking shape as opening nears”

Destin’s Margaritaville restaurant should make any Parrothead proud as its opening day nears.

“This is going to be awesome,” Legendary Inc. CEO Peter Bos told The Log during a Saturday morning tour of the construction site. “It’s going to turn the harbor upside down.”

Walking through the roughly 15,000 square foot, three-story restaurant, one could easily imagine Jimmy Buffett’s famed “Cheeseburger in Paradise” playing on the sound system and margaritas flowing from one of the many bars.

Whether it’s the custom-made tables adorned with Buffett-inspired images or the nautical themed accessories, the restaurant is coming together. And don’t think that Buffet doesn’t know it.

“He’s been here a couple of times,” Bos said. “He’s real pleased with the restaurant.”

When entering the restaurant from the upper level at HarborWalk Village, guests will immediately be greeted by a giant buoy, a plane suspended from the ceiling, and if they look directly over the doors, a boat that was repurposed after being purchased from a 70-year-old military veteran in Tallahassee.

Construction on Jimmy Buffett’s latest Margaritaville restaurant is coming along nicely, with an opening scheduled for late January according to Northwest Florida Daily News:

Construction is expected to wrap up and be turned over to Margaritaville in early January. The staff then will be trained for a couple weeks before the restaurant is expected to open in late January.

Margaritaville is taking over the Lucky Snapper’s footprint, but the entire building is undergoing a major renovation designed by Destin architect Joe Dougherty of Dougherty Architecture. The building has been redesigned to have more of a beach village feel, and will feature several stores, a booking booth for boat charters and a stage on east side of the building.

Buffett has visited Destin to inspect the construction. His most recent trip was about three weeks ago.

“He came in and spent the day,” Peter Bos, CEO of Legendary Inc. said. “He is very, very, very happy with the building and excited about being in Destin.”
