Hundreds of Parrotheads and fans alike joined in the event, which also marked the debut of the first-ever Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant in California.
Jimmy Buffett said, “I walked onto the site of CityWalk when it was still under construction, and my first thought was ‘I want a Margaritaville here.’ Thanks to the great folks at Universal, we made it. It’s great to play at the opening and I look forward to visiting regularly on my journeys to the West Coast. Fins Up!”
