Having recently stayed at a Margaritavilla (tons of Jimmy references from lyrics on the walls to drinks named for songs, etc.), I can't believe the Stones marketing team hasn't done something like this....

BTW, Buffett's place was great.

The Rolling Stones Memory Motel Resort

Drink Names:

Emotional Rescue
Shattered
19th Nervous Breakdown, etc.

Food:

Hot Stuff Salsa
Horse Meat Pie
Little Red Rooster Chicken Strips, etc.

Stay in the Sir Michael Suite
Cheaper rooms for Beast Of Burden


Any thoughts?

Thanks Elmo!

I'm partial to the Winning Ugly casino. It's nice to get some love for a Dirty Work track.

Jimmy has developed a culture - and a fortune - about having a good time, originally based on ONE SONG!!! It has since expanded to include a ton of songs.

Not something I could see the Stones doing but then again I didn't think it was something Buffett would do either since he was an anti-condo tacky cruise ship hating ganja smoking tequila guzzling "country" Gulf Coast/Florida Keys/Caribbean rock'n'roller.

He also owns a cannabis dispensary, appropriately called Coral Reefer.

When I first saw the mention of Jimmy buffett I thought of the bar in saint bart's back in the early 1980,there was a bar named for him and a killer jukebox and the beer was pure kronberg.. but maybe it was him.. all I know I was there.. and the beer was bloody cold.

I wonder if the Margaritaville Resort hosts a "Jimmy Buffet" on Sundays?

There wasn't a bar named after him but he did own (partially) a bar called Autour du Rocher.

Just in case anyone is wondering, well, Buffett went to Cuba in 2014 or whenever it was and sat behind the stage while the Stones played to Havana.

I stand corrected. However the beer was cold and the jukebox loud

HA! No. But I did play for his niece's wedding party in Gautier, MS that he was supposedly going to show up for but didn't (bizarrely one of those classic Gulf Coast late fall nights when it went from 75° to 40° in about an hour). I kinda know some of his family, too, but it's been a while since I've seen anyone. For example, his cousin Baxter? That side.

Thank you again E, though I think the "Too Tough Discount Steak House" and "Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo's Hair Salon" deserve honourable mention.

Just know y'all Gulf Coast boys stick together.

GasLight, is "Bama Breeze" about the Flori-Bama Bar? BTW, for those who don't know, Jimmy mentions Mick in the song (as well as Lynyrd Skynyrd).

It's not specifically about the Flora-Bama, just Gulf Coast bars in general, that kind of 'there's one in your area' beach bar, but apparently was inspired from Hurricane Ivan hitting Gulf Shores, AL, which is near the Flora-Bama, so, for some, it is about the Flora-Bama. It's really just about any beach bar along the Gulf Coast.

The video single was filmed in Bay St Louis, MS after Hurricane Katrina in the remains of the Fire Dog Saloon, which I had visited a few times. I went over there around the time the video was filmed, not knowing JB was going to be or had been there, and wandered around the destruction while doing some interview on the phone with a newspaper.
