    Default Margaritaville in SoFl

    Today sipping a Margarita in all places at magaritaville at the City Walk in Orlando, I drew up a conversation with the manager.

    I learned from her that there are plans somewhere North of Miami to build a mega resort of the same name. I'm not that familiar with available r.e.. I do know a St. regis is going up next year in Bal Harbour.

    I'm not a parrot head but I usually get into that mode in the Keys. If they can develop that kind of feel nearby, that a viable option ?

    Does anyone know where this development is going up ?

    Are you talking about the Margaritaville Hotels? Their business model has them going in much more blue collar areas than South Florida.

    I know there is one in Pensacola and Myrtle Beach, SC is on deck.

    Sounds about right. I went by the one that was supposed to be built in Biloxi. I think the demographic is a lower-income crowd, so I guess Hollywood might make sense.

    From what you guys are saying, it's going to be more of a Ron-Jon type of place.. Thanks for educating me on the demographs. I wouldn't have suspected it. I make it a point to have at least one drink at the City Walk bar when I go.. Didn't know they had he shared the market with that NASCAR themed resuarant just steps away. If that's Buffet's market, the least he should do is lower the price of a case Land Shark to Budweiser levels.

    That's a perfect location. That cruise crowd will keep the hotel full.

    It's a shame no one will do anything with that beautiful old Ramada on Hollywood Beach.
