"Some of it's magic, some of it's tragic, but I had a good life all the way"~Jimmy Buffett
When I was younger, my grandmother made me listen to the oldies. Eventually, as I got older, I started to like the oldies and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville was one of them. My French Club and I found the place wasn't crowded, so we went in.
We were really going to Cafe Maspero, but the colorful place caught my teacher's eye. There are brilliant colors with all of his songs. There is a beach house (Creole cottage is what it looks like) on the moon, a plane with spinning wings, and a margarita glass above pirates and sharks.
The menu ranges from $10 to at least $20 to cover one's meal. They offer hamburgers, the Cajun Pasta Alfredo, "Come Monday" Red Beans and Rice, quesadillas, a Caesar Salad, Volcano nachos, and huge po-boys to name a few. The portions are quite small, except for the po-boy and plate of gumbo.
The best spot was near the window, where you could see the French Market area. Also, the chairs and tables were beautiful. The tables had maps with pictures of him, and the chairs had sayings and songs. I sat in the "Treat Her Like A Lady" while across from me someone sat in the "Big Rig". Near my right was "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes".
Every night at 5 and later there is always some musician playing. If you want to waste away in Margaritaville, this is the place.
