Jimmy Buffett joins Mohegans

Sun Will Shine on Margaritaville

Mohegans, Restaurant Join Forces As Part Of Tribe's Project HorizonWith a tribal prayer uttered as a blessing and margarita glasses clinking a toast, the Mohegan tribe welcomed a new partner, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, Thursday and broke ground for its latest expansion.

“We always give thanks to the Creator,” said Tribal Chairman Bruce “Two Dogs” Bozsum in his native tongue, and then in English, for ... “all You have given us and all things that will come.”

Then, instead of sticking shovels in the dirt—the corporate ceremonial signal that new construction has begun—tribal members and new business partners toasted one another with virgin margaritas as the mayors of Montville and Norwich looked on.
