Fans of French Quarter busker-turned-Corona with a lime lifestyle entrepreneur Jimmy Buffett have flocked to his Margaritaville Restaurants (including one in the Mall of America), his casinos ("wastin' away again in Bossier Cityville"), and clothing. Now they have a new option: a Jimmy Buffett-themed retirement community called Latitude Margaritaville:
Inspired by the legendary music and lifestyle of singer, songwriter and best-selling author Jimmy Buffett, your new home in paradise features exciting recreation, unmatched dining and FINtastic nightlife.
The project in Daytona Beach, Florida, plans to have model homes "starting in the low $200,000s" ready early next year.

Buffett's New Orleans outpost of Margaritaville closed in mid-2015. He was the subject of the 2011 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival poster (painted by Garland Robinette). The original Parrothead turns 70 this year, so it's only fitting he's providing his fan base with a Golden Girls (and Boys)-style retirement option, one where the piña coladas flow freely and no one will likely care if they get a whiff of sweet bud from a nearby balcony.

So save your shekels, Parrotheads, and get ready to start lookin' for that lost shaker of salt substitute.
