Parrotheads flock to Mohegan

A Parrothead Mecca At Mohegan

Margaritaville opens at Casino of WindMixed in with the executives and tribal members in suits, there were self-proclaimed “Parrotheads” donning their usual regalia: colorful leis and Hawaiian shirts in every color of the rainbow.

The pack of proclaimed Jimmy Buffett fans gathered Monday morning for the grand-opening of the entertainer's only eatery in the Northeast.

”You can never have a bad time at Jimmy Buffett's,” Mohegan Tribal Chairman Bruce “Two Dogs” Bozsum said. “So rock on.”

The opening of the 16,000-square foot restaurant marks the completion of the Casino of the Wind expansion at Mohegan Sun and the big event, filled with references to the Florida Keys and, of course, margaritas, comes exactly one week after the Mohegan Tribe announced it would delay further expansion plans for at least another year.
