NASHVILLE, Tenn.Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- World-renowned singer/songwriter/author Jimmy Buffett, along with Corner Partnership, have unveiled plans to bring "Margaritaville to Music City" by opening the first Margaritaville Restaurant in Tennessee in downtown Nashville. Visitors and residents will both enjoy the atmosphere of adventure and escape, live music, island inspired menu and of course those famous "frozen concoctions".  "It's much more than a restaurant; it's a state of mind" and an exceptionally good time for anyone from families to "Parrot Heads".
"Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville is one of the most iconic and beloved brand names in the world, and we are excited to partner with Margaritaville Enterprises in this venture," said Mark Bloom, a partner in Nashville-based Corner Partnership, along with Ronnie Scott and Larry Papel, who owns the building at 322 Broadway. "This is another important step in the ongoing private investment and development of downtown Nashville."
The new Margaritaville Nashville will be housed in a historic building on the corner of 4th and Broadway, just across from the famous Ryman Auditorium.
On the first level will be the "License to Chill Bar", inspired by Jimmy's hit country album of the same name. "Chill's" window walls will slide back, opening up to the streets, allowing the passing crowds to catch a bit of music and the guests inside to enjoy the action on the Avenue.
The heart of the ground level space will be "Conky Tonkin' Dining", expressing Jimmy's love of boating, flying and adventure.  Jimmy's famous flying Albatross Sea Plane will glide over, a regatta of exotic vessels including sailboats, fishing boats, and a shrimp boat inspired by Jimmy's Shrimp Boat Studios in Key West.  Banquette seating along with a collection of "floating tables" will provide great views to the ground level Performance Stage with its metal canopy, rustic wood deck and incredible sound system.
Adjacent to "Conky Tonkin' Dining" will be the "Tiki Room". This area (which is also ideal for small private parties and functions) will provide guests with the ultimate exotic dining and drinking experience. Palm trees, thatch roofs, bamboo and escapism murals will transport guests to their private "getaway".
The second level will have the feel of a rockin' country concert hall with tall ceilings and ornate windows. The main room will have the potential to be divided for multiple events and parties. The Concert Stage itself will be large enough to host major bands and concert performances and will have a state of the art sound and lighting system. Traditional seating arrangements will be available for dining, but on those special nights when one ofNashville's emerging artists, a country music legend or Jimmy hits the Margaritaville stage the entire floor can be set up to increase capacity and provide a wonderful concert environment.
The upper level will also be home to the "Cowboy in The Jungle Bar". Here guest will be treated to the perfect blend of country and the tropics. Unique saddle seating, tropical vegetation, murals, and dimensional artifacts will offer a wonderful place for a private party and great views of the Concert Stage.
"I've been thinking about opening in Nashville for a long time, it's where my music career began.  It's a very diverse place, and it's a natural thing to put a stage in.  You never know who's going to show up," said Buffett, who formerly lived in Nashville and is committed to offering a venue for up-and-coming musicians to showcase their musical talents through Margaritaville's nightly entertainment showcases. Jimmy Buffett's restaurant will provide more of what visitors and residents want – a great place for music and entertainment.
"Margaritaville coming to Nashville will be great for our city, not only in terms of tourism, but also in creating jobs and boosting the local economy," said Mayor Karl Dean. "This restaurant will fit in perfectly with our fantastic music scene, and I'm happy to add Margaritaville to the growing list of things downtown Nashvillehas on the horizon."

New Flavor Friday from Blue Bell..

From KHOU-TV Houston:  BRENHAM, TX -- Blue Bell Ice Cream is teasing a new flavor on its social media feeds. The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time. During the shutdown, the company worked with outside experts to control and eliminate potential sources of Listeria inside the Texas and Oklahoma facilities where the outbreak originated. While production of the iconic brand has resumed, not all of the company's flavors that were being produced prior to the plant closings are available. Blue Bell has been taking a measured reintroduction, and now has product available in most states and markets where they were prior to the closings. In this week's social media tease, the company says the new flavor will have fans "dancing in the grocery store aisles." Our newest flavor is a combination o…

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding. A few hours later, they robbed a bank in Georg…
