Jimmy Buffett has a Brilliant Retirement Plan!

Talk about "Wasted away in Margaritaville!"

So the cool elders in your family are starting to downsize and think in terms of "what's next?"  Well, here's an idea from none other than Jimmy Buffett!  For Parrotheads "55 and better" seeking an "active adult community," the Latitude Margaritaville will open its first branch in Daytona Beach, Florida in Fall 2017, followed by Hilton Head, South Carolina in 2018, with similar communities also in the works.  

I remember when "A Pirate Looks at 40" seemed like a LONG way off.  Now it's in the rear view mirror, and I'm still the same irreverent little brat I was when I first heard the song.  So for people like me, and like-minded music freaks, it's probably just the ticket.

Nah, I'll just check into Edgefield.  At least they have cool shows in the summer and a short golf course that I can handle most days.

Oh, and by the way, Jimmy Buffett will be in Eugene playing the Matt Knight Arena on Sunday, October 15, 2017.  Maybe he could talk to Bob Weir about opening a Grateful Dead themed place similar to his there.
