Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Hotel is looking to fill hundreds of jobs before it opens this fall:

Tim Arnold, director of food and beverage at the Jimmy Buffett-inspired resort, said he is looking to fill about 300 jobs for the 349-room hotel and its eight restaurant and bar venues.

Hundreds of applicants are expected to participate in the resort’s hiring event June 23-25 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at the Hillcrest Golf & Country Club, 4600 Hillcrest Drive in Hollywood.

Arnold told the South Florida Business Journal that job seekers will be placed in a “dynamic” environment at the event to see how they respond to the Margaritaville vibe, while still maintaining their professionalism. He said they should also bring resumes and be prepared to talk about their past work experience.

“We’re not hung up on the dress code,” Arnold said about the event. “We’re focused more on personality, enthusiasm.”

Margaritaville Hollywood expects to hire people from all hospitality backgrounds, Arnold said, from previous amusement park workers to luxury hotel workers and others.

Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Cafe in New Orleans will close on June 30th, but reopen later this year or early next year in a new location.

Today Margaritaville New Orleans announced that the restaurant, bar and live music venue will move from their current address at 1104 Decatur Street to a new location on upper Decatur. The new venue is currently in the design stage, with construction scheduled to begin later this year.

“We will always have a presence in the city that gave Jimmy his start. Margaritaville has had an awesome 22 year run on Decatur Street and we are not done yet,” said Bret Brown, Margaritaville’s Director of Domestic Operations. “We have made the decision to vacate our current location on lower Decatur before completion of our new property in the interest of making way for another namesake live music venue, BB Kings, to become the next tenant at the historic Storyville Music Hall location.”

Jimmy Plays in Houston, Beams Show to Space Station

Jimmy Buffett was in Houston, Texas on Thursday night for a show at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion as part of the 2015 Workin’ N Playin’ Tour.

Astronaut Terry Virts sent a recorded video message from the International Space Station that was played during the show. Watch it here.

The Houston Chronicle has a review of the show:

Buffett’s latest stop on his “Workin’ and Playin’ 2015″ tour was beamed to the International Space Station, where U.S. astronaut and admitted Parrothead Terry Virts has been spending the past six months doing experiments and racking up frequent flier miles.

Virts appeared on a big screen behind Buffett during the show — urging concert fans to get involved in science and read up on the U.S. space program.

He just happened to be wearing a Houston Astros T-shirt. Even in outer space, he was working the room on Earth.

NASA and Buffett’s tech support crew originally hoped to beam Virts’ appearance live during the concert, but the pesky space station was on the far side of the world. So the astronaut’s hello to Buffett fans and Buffett’s thank you — a replay of the full concert — were done on tape.

Buffett opened the show with “Ragtop Day,” “The Great Filling Station Holdup” and “Off to See the Lizard.” He added, “June is almost here, the days are getting longer and I can see the lawn people rocking!”

Read the full review here.

The 2015 tour continues on Saturday night in Frisco, TX. Get your tickets now for one of Jimmy’s summer shows!
