New Smyrna Beach eatery celebrates Jimmy Buffett with margarita special

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. – A local restaurant in New Smyrna Beach has announced a special offer on margaritas in honor of the late Jimmy Buffett, the famed singer-songwriter. Known for his popular beach bum soft rock and the iconic song “Margaritaville,” Buffett, who passed away at the age of 76 on Friday, carved a niche for himself with his Caribbean-infused tunes and built a billion-dollar empire around his carefree lifestyle.

According to a statement released on Buffett’s official website and social media platforms late Friday, the legendary artist passed away peacefully surrounded by his loved ones, music, and his beloved pets. The statement further expressed that Buffett lived his life like a song and his departure has left an immeasurable void in the hearts of many.

Meanwhile, Outriggers Tiki Bar and Grille, situated at 200 Boat Yard St. in New Smyrna Beach, took to social media to pay tribute to the late musician. In an effort to honor the legend, the restaurant announced a special promotion offering 2-for-1 margaritas until the end of Labor Day. Outriggers’ heartfelt gesture aims to transport patrons to the mythical Margaritaville, a paradise inspired by Buffett’s legacy.

Jimmy Buffett’s music was characterized by a unique blend of Gulf Coast elements encompassing country, pop, folk, and rock, with a prominent infusion of Caribbean influences like steel drums. His ability to create infectious melodies and breezy rhythms often went unnoticed amidst his lyrical tales of fish tacos and sunsets. It was this distinctive amalgamation of instruments and tonalities, ranging from steel pans to trombones and pedal steel guitar, that set Buffett apart in the music industry.

As the world mourns the loss of an icon, the local community’s tribute at Outriggers Tiki Bar and Grille serves as a reminder of Buffett’s profound impact on the lives of many, and his everlasting legacy that will continue to resonate through his timeless tunes.
