Even though it's been soft open for a few weeks, last Thursday was the official grand opening of Margaritaville at Universal Studios Hollywood. The awesome event included lots of food and drinks and a performance by none other than Jimmy Buffett himself.
We also headed back to Margaritaville later in the weekend for some more food and fun. They've priced the food and drinks to attract locals to the restaurant and it seems to be paying off. Lots of great fun to be had.
We'll also have a small park update as well at the bottom.

Looks like we're in the right place
They streamed the Jimmy Buffett performance out at CityWalk so everybody could see.
We still get kind of shocked to be included in such awesome events. Hope we never lose that. =)
It was almost 5 O'Clock
Lots of food to try
Watermelon Margarita ... soooooo good
Added some Carne Asada
Had to add some Lava Lava shrimp, Cheesburger in Paradise slider and Ahi Kale salad. All were amazing.
Oh, and Jimmy Buffett performing.
Dine on a surfboard
Still need to find this sign
Some of the decor of the restaurant
We decided to head back to Margaritaville a few days later on Sunday. We had a great meal and everything is very reasonably priced. They are pricing the food and drinks to attract locals which is VERY smart.
This was only $10 and fed both of us, and we didn't even finish it.

We were going to do a separate update for the park but we have a lot of updates this week, so we figured we'd just include it here.
