On October 14, Margaritaville Las Vegas at the Flamingo will attempt to break the current World Record for the largest margarita ever made as verified by Guinness World Records. After 3 days, and over 300 man hours of cocktail making, the two-story margarita, appropriately named “Lucky Rita” will celebrate its final pour at 5 O’clock making it the World’s Largest Margarita at an astounding 8,500 gallons.
Following the final pour, Margaritaville will host a ceremony featuring an oversized salty margarita toast (the first drinks from Lucky Rita) with representatives from Margaritaville, Flamingo Las Vegas executives and members of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team. Parrotheads along with the public and media are encouraged to attend the event where all guests will be treated to entertainment, margaritas and Jimmy Buffett concert giveaways.
All part of the opening celebration of the new Margaritaville Casino at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, Lucky Rita will kick off Margaritaville week followed by the 7th Annual Street Parties on the 15th and 22nd that coincide with Jimmy’s Vegas performances. Beginning at 11 a.m. each Saturday, the all-day, outdoor free admission street party will offer guests a taste of Lucky Rita and will include live entertainment, interactive games, great food and drinks along with exciting giveaways from Margaritaville sunglasses, flip flops, and frozen concoction makers to Jimmy Buffett concert tickets. Information about the two street parties will continue to be updated on Margaritaville.com.
In addition to the onsite festivities Margaritaville will also debut Margaritaville Online at the October 15th Street Party. Guests can virtually escape to a tropical island getaway in THQ’s innovative and humorous Facebook and iOS social game Margaritaville Online. Inspired by the laid-back, tropical paradise lifestyle of singer-songwriter and author Jimmy Buffett, friends will be able to party and play in an immersive 3D-perspective utopia with familiar island music, entertaining games, unique adventures and more! Send your friends delicious fruit drinks and relax by the beach while fending off party pirates, participating in mini-games and building your very own oasis. Margaritaville Online is developed by Exploding Barrel Games and published by THQ. THQ’s booth is located in “Fin City” at the Margaritaville Street Party in Las Vegas.
