Picture(s) A Day – 13 June 2010
This weekend was a bit trying as was last night – I was just beat. I hope you’ll find it in your hearts to forgive my tardiness in posting these and that you might just like ‘em as well
Doyle is Cindy’s nephew who I’ve known for quite a few years now. He’s getting ready to move up to Utah later this week, so we wanted to do something as a bit of a last time out for some fun :) We’d originally planned to go shooting, but neither one of us really had the energy to actually follow through on that plan. Instead, we headed on over to Margaritaville – Doyle’s a Parrothead, too
That’s the main dining area at Margaritaville. The whole ceiling’s a map of the Caribbean, there’s boats for booths, and a giant model of the Hemisphere Dancer (Jimmy’s Grumman Albatross amphibious airplane) with spinning propellers hanging over the customers. Of course I love it
Believe it or not, Doyle actually shaved his head bald last summer and that’s just a year’s growth :shock: Something tells me he’ll get a haircut about the time his grandmother sees him
A favorite dish of mine and many of my friends as well is this heaping plate of Volcano Nachos 8) Without meat it’s only about $12 and with your choice of fajita chicken or beef it’s only about $15. Neither one of us could be called small and both of us were very hungry, but together we barely managed to finish off this plate.
So this is the volcano and blender the girl slides into on weekends :) Yes, there’s a scantily clad female who slides down and then does a whole twirling performance before dancing on the railing. Somehow I think that adds to the crowd just a little
The artwork on the walls at Margaritaville is all related to Jimmy’s music. For example, the top picture relates to the song and album Volcano while the second picture relates to the song and album Fruitcakes. I often wonder how many people have no clue what they mean
I found out about this card and got it on Sunday, but I confess the picture was taken today. This card is only for locals – you’ve got to have a Nevada I.D. to get one, but they’re free if you meet the requirements
Last but not least we have the performers who put on a great show several times a day on the weekends. The guys are all on really tall stilts and aside from helping our lovely lady if she needs someone to balance against while on the railing, they also make balloon animals for the kids and the kids at heart.
