For better or worse, Jimmy’s name is attached to this project. He has a Bachelor’s degree in history from University of Southern Mississippi, so it’s time to put that hard-earned education to work! FYI, his birthday is Christmas, so also wish him a happy birthday!

Margaritaville may be the perfect place for wasting away, but downtown Atlanta historic music history should not be wasted. Margaritaville Nashville is located in a restored historic building on Broadway and is “more Nashville-centric.” Why should Atlanta accept anything less?

If they can celebrate the Jazz Age at their New Yorker Hotel, there’s no reason they can’t celebrate the musical history in Atlanta, too.

The demolition permit will need to be approved or denied by the staff of Atlanta’s mayor. Her father, Major Lance, also recorded for Okeh Records in the 1960s.

The Downtown Atlanta Master Plan, facilitated by Central Atlanta Progress and adopted by the Atlanta City Council in December 2017, calls for Atlanta to “uncover, celebrate, and preserve Downtown’s heritage to ensure that new growth does not overwrite our history.”

As Alan, “What would Jimmy Buffett do?” Well, we hope the answer is “Save 152 Nassau Street from the wrecking ball!” Alan’s from nearby Newnan, Georgia so hopefully he can provide a little bitty help.
