Road Trip Part 6: Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville
And it's a fair question. But I've been to this Margaritaville twice before: once when I visited New Orleans with some friends for Mardi Gras when I was 21, and on my 24th birthday when my friend Tom and I drove around the country together. And those were two of the best times of my entire life. So I have nothing but good associations with this place. On our first night in New Orleans, after getting a couple of Hurricanes and random beers, Elizabeth and I wandered around a little trying to decide what to get for dinner. (We could have gone anywhere; I've never had a bad meal in this town.)
When we passed Margaritaville I said "Let's go for it."
It was nice to be back at Margaritaville, but on my next New Orleans trip I won't be stopping by. The food was good, but there is much better food to be had elsewhere. It was like hanging out for an evening with someone you knew casually back in high school: it was nice to remember all the fun we used to have way back when, but we don't need to ever do this again.
If it suddenly ended tomorrow I could somehow adjust to the fall
Good times and riches and son of a bitches, I've seen more than I can recall.
