Margaritaville and UB40 in Las Vegas
Ed, Hazards' owner, was in Las Vegas this week to attend seminars on the new reservation software St. Hazards will be using to make online reservations very efficient. It's a very sophisticated system that should make visiting St. Hazards easier.
While there, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville had to be visited. This year Hazards had real palm trees inside, but it seems Jimmy uses the fake ones. And his $10 margaritas are about twice the Hazards' price.
Down the street at Mandalay Bay, UB40 had a one night concert at the beach bar. UB40 is one of Hazards' favorites with recordings like "Red Red Wine", "Kingston Town", Cherry Oh Baby" and Can't Help Falling in Love". They were formed in 1978 in England, just one year after "Margaritaville" was recorded by our other favorite.
What happens in Vegas... gets to Middle Bass!
