VIDEO: Atlantic City Is Ready For Jimmy Buffet


ATLANTIC CITY - It may be August, but summer isn’t over yet. What’s being called the biggest summer concert series in Atlantic City’s history kicks off this weekend with none other than Mr. Margaritaville himself, Jimmy Buffet.
“We just couldn’t be happier that Jimmy is coming to this great city, it’s going to be a great day for Atlantic City and it’s going to be a great day for Resorts for sure,” said Mark Giannantonio, President and CEO of Resorts Casino and Hotel.
A toast with a margarita was in order this morning at Landshark Bar and Grill as the CEO of Resorts Casino and Hotel celebrated the thousands of people expected to flock to the beach to see Jimmy Buffet.
“It’s great that we can bring live beach concerts to this beautiful city, said Giannantonio. "It really helps us showcase the great assets that the city has, the boardwalk, the beautiful beach and ocean.”
Longtime friend of Buffet and frequent concert goer Maureen Popp of Ocean City is excited to see him with her toes in the sand.
“Being on a beach for a Jimmy Buffet concert is the ideal place to see him when he’s in his element like this,” said Popp.
Preparations are in full swing for a beach party where parrot heads will celebrate like it’s five o’clock somewhere prior to the concert’s start time at four p.m.
“We’re going to have live bands on the beach at Landshark Bar & Grill and Margaritaville inside," said Giannantonio. "We’re going to have the greatest beach party in Atlantic City’s history.”
