Too bad Landshark is a Anheuser-Busch product.

The first time I tried Landshark in a bottle, I thought that it tasted just like Corona (which I like with lime when it's really hot). The 2nd time I had it at the swim-up bar at CP (on draft), it wasn't very good. Not that it tasted sour like when they don't clean the tap lines out...it just honestly tasted more like Budweiser with a lime.

Not sure what that was all about, so I haven't really had it since. But then again, I tend to steer myself towards hoppier, higher ABV beers these days, unless I am golfing and then it's usually Canadian lager.

Back on subject...Michael likes Buffet so this resort gets our stamp of approval. ;)

It pretty much does, but I drink Landshark instead because Jimmy Buffet tells me to.

^ If I am in Florida or any other tropical place I will try it again...in a bottle with lime...on the beach...just as it should be.

And after that we'll move on to the Margarita's...just because that's what you do when on said beach! ;)

Hows about a Premier Rides spaghetti bowl that's called Shocktop? ;)


What the hell does that have to do with Jimmy Buffet? Please step away from the Parrothead party. Poser. Around here we drink Landshark. Fins up.



We also spell Buffett with two "T's". :lmao:

This place needs a drop tower called Gravity Storm.

Biloxi resort plans $140M amusement park and hotel tower
June 26, 2018 07:29 PM
BILOXI, Miss.

The owners of the Margaritaville Resort Biloxi announced Thursday that they will move forward with a $140 million hotel expansion and amusement park after settling a lawsuit with state officials.

The current 371-room hotel was built as Casino Magic Biloxi. It was vacant for years after 2005's Hurricane Katrina, but re-opened two years ago as a family-focused vacation destination without gambling.

Spokesman Cono Caranna of the Barrington Group said Thursday that the owner agreed to lease land from the state, paying more than $650,000 a year.

Caranna said expansion will include a second 300-room hotel tower and an elevated amusement park to go with the current extensive arcade, pool and indoor playground. He estimates the expansion will add 600 jobs.

"Post-Katrina, everything that was on the beach that was family-friendly didn't come back," he said, explaining the resort's popularity. "Adding this to the mix added something that allowed families to come to the Mississippi Gulf Coast."

The owners of the hotel were challenging the Mississippi Secretary of State's office claim that the state owned some land south of the U.S. 90 beachfront highway. The city of Biloxi, the Biloxi school district and Harrison County were also challenging the claim. All those parties are dismissing their lawsuits, with Biloxi city spokesman Vincent Creel saying the developer agreed to relinquish its ownership claims to at least some disputed land.

The city of Biloxi had threatened to rezone the land to prohibit casinos, a move Hosemann said would make the lease less valuable for the state. The city didn't do that and Hosemann said the Margaritaville lease includes a rent increase if the developer ever opens a casino on the site.

The same development group opened a second Margaritaville in a former casino hotel in Vicksburg on Saturday.

The Barrington Group also has redeveloped or is working on four other developments in Gulfport and Biloxi.

I wish they'd add a couple of compact coasters, A SBF Visa Spinner and something like Iron Shark. Kemah/Pleasure Pier this place up.
