Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Hotel will open despite oil spill
Buffet's $50 million hotel sits on the Gulf near the main section of Pensacola Beach, on land where Hurricane Ivan destroyed a previous hotel in 2004. Clearly not phased by the potential threat of the oil spill, Buffett told news sites he has no plans to delay the opening of his hotel.
"This will pass," he said as walked along the city's beachfront and fishing pier with Fla. Gov. Charlie Crist.
"Here's an opportunity to be a real Floridian, because if we have to shore up here, we can do it." Buffet told South Florida's CBS4 reporters this weekend. He has his own marketing campaign in mind to get people to come to the panhandle. "It might be more fun to come down and help clean up than just lay around on the beach."
Well put, Mr. Buffett. Grab your margarita, find your cheeseburger and sit back in a new kind of paradise in Pensacola. Cheers!
