All things Niagara Falls tourism…
There is lots of work being done, that’s for sure.
There is also a sign up on the door about an upcoming job fair:

Is Jimmy going to be there opening night?
I don’t think it has been 100% confirmed, but the word is that he will be there…
When is opening night?
The press release only said it “opens later this year” and that it was “scheduled for summer 2010”. I haven’t heard a firm date yet.
I just wanted to add that even though Jimmy Buffett does visit all of the Margaritaville restaurants he does not always do it right away. Recently he did Panama Beach ,Fl for the first time and it has been open a while, but I do think he will do it eventually.
The Margaritaville website does say a spring opening.
The information I got was from the main Margaritaville web site. It used the other terms I mentioned.
I guess they both could be right. If it opens in June, most people would consider that summer (or almost summer), even though it is technically still Spring until June 21
I was on Facebook and the Fan page states May 25. They have a lot of work to do before then! Wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t open until late June.
Yeah, May 25 seems terribly optimistic.
Let’s just hope that John Holer’s not the site supervisor!! 😉
It was a fairly modern restaurant before so I’d imagine any renovations to the kitchen/bar would/could be completed in a timely manner. Rewiring, or replumbing would not be necessary and unless they gutted the inside most work would be of a cosmetic nature which could make a late May opening a possibility.
I’ve you’ve been following the blog, I’ve posted some pictures lately. The renovations are major.
This one. Do a search for Margaritaville and you’ll find some pictures…
Bahahah Drafty! Hilarious!
Helen you’re right about Wolfgang. However Graham is right and this place looks like it’s going to be massive. I think there is going to be three or four patios!
Mom and i are coming up in a couple weeks. Just made reservations for the 23rd. please arrange for moderately-warm and sunny weather! i know you know people that can make that happen, Graham! 🙂 Can’t wait! it’s been too long.
I have it on good authority that the opening date is June 17. Take that to the bank.
We drove by last night and it does not look anywhere close to completion
I find it interesting that Jimmy is playing concerts on June 17 and 19 at Mansfield, MA. That leaves the 18th open. A coincidence??? It’s not that far away for Jimmy to get to Niagara on the 18th of June and back in time for the June 19th show. I find it intriguing that there will be two concerts at the same location but not on consecutive nights. There have been a few sites that have mentioned the opening to be on June 18th but none of them have substantiated or definitely confirmed that date. Hopefully someone can get some firm statements soon as June the 18th is only 12 days away.
