Jimmy Buffett 'Margaritaville' Hotel May Be Coming To Jacksonville Beach
A Jimmy Buffett 'Margaritaville' Hotel may be coming to Jacksonville Beach. Jacksonville Beach director of planning and development Bill Mann said the project is planned for the vacant, oceanfront block between 6th and 7th Avenues North.
Elite Hospitality, based in Ormand Beach, has closed on the purchase of a hotel development site in Jacksonville Beach for $11 million. Located at 15 First Street North, the property has been pre-approved for a eight story tower encompassing 220 rooms. Elite Hospitality has listed the site on its website as the future home of a Margaritaville hotel. Elite owns 11 Florida hotels, including four in St. Augustine Beach, three each in Jacksonville and Daytona Beach, and one in Ormond Beach under the flags of Courtyard by Marriott, Hampton Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites, Hilton Garden Inn and Holiday Inn Express & Suites.
The proposed facility will also feature a ground-level restaurant, commercial space and outside amenities. The "Margaritaville" restaurant in Jacksonville Beach would be one of 32 restaurants in the Jimmy Buffett franchise. There are several locations in Florida, including ones in Orlando and Hollywood

The Venardos Circus Is Coming To The St. Augustine Amphitheatre Beginning January 24
The Venardos Circus, a unique family oriented traveling troupe, will bring its big-top performance to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre beginning January 24 and running through February 10, 2018. The Circus proudly features its own custom-made big-top, a classic red-and-white striped tent, with an intimate feel and seating for up to 300 guests. The tent will be set up in the parking area of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, adjacent to the larger venue.
Created by former Ringling Bros. Ringmaster Kevin Venardos (veh-NARR-dos), the Venardos Circus wraps world-class circus acts into a Broadway Musical-style format that is called “the American Circus with the heart of a Broadway Show.” The group recently completed a series of shows in Las Vegas and arrives in St. Augustine with aerialists, acrobats, comedians, juggling, balancing, daredevilry and performers hailing from around the world. The Broadway-style singing and dancing adds another level of intrigue to the performance.
The Venardos Circus’ St. Augustine visit fills a void and is timely. The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus closed in May after 146 years of entertaining. A new 20th Century Fox film musical that portrays the career of P.T. Barnum, entitled “The ... [Read More]
Come All Ye Bold Heroes Is Saturday At The Castillo de San Marcos National Monument
Florida Living History, Inc.’s volunteers, in partnership with the National Park Service’s Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, will recreate a 1779 recruitment drive at Fort St. Mark in St. Augustine, the capital of British East Florida, enlisting soldiers to "take the King's Shilling" and march against the American rebels this Saturday.
Those who sign on will tour their new barracks, learn about the equipment and food with which King George will supply them, and practice 18th-century close-order drill under with their sergeant. Regular soldiers of Florida's British Army will also be on hand to demonstrate the daily life of a soldier on this frontier of the Empire, while the ladies of the garrison will discuss what it means for wives and children to "follow the drum."
The event takes place at the Castillo de San Marcos from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. There will be a lecture presented by Roger Smith at 2 p.m. inside the Castillo. Sgt. Batten's stirring recruitment speech will conclude the event at 3 p.m. on the Castillo lawn. General admission into the park is $10, and admission for youth ages 15 and under is free.... [Read More]
The Mini Bar Donuts + Coffee Is Opening This Saturday
The Mini Bar Donuts + Coffee is opening at 1300 Beach Boulevard in Jacksonville Beach at 9am this Saturday. The Mini Bar will be open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Jan. 13 and from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 14.
Jacksonville natives Brooke Sams and her husband, Chase, are the owners of the store. They will also offer coffee by Bold Bean Coffee Roasters and beer by local breweries such as Jacksonville Beach-based Southern Swells Brewing Co.
“The donuts are all made to order, so if you come you’ll always get a hot donut,” Sams said. “There will be a set menu you can pick from but you can also come in and build your own donut with any number of crazy toppings.”
The Mini Bar will have 16 donut flavors, including s’mores, peanut butter cup, cookies n’ crème, jelly, birthday cake and a variety of glazes such as vanilla, strawberry, peanut butter and maple. A gluten-free donut also will be available. Their donuts are about a third of the size of a regular donut. This means you get to try more flavors each visit.
The 2,800-square-foot space will have 30 inside seats plus lounge seats and a 1,700-square-foot outdoor courtyard. Sams said she anticipates having a staff of 15. The s... [Read More]

Learn How You Can Fight a Cold with Food
Here we go again…Cold and flu season is right around the corner, and prevention is the best medicine. But when you already have a bug, getting rid of it and feeling normal again is the goal, right? Well, did you know that you can fight back by eating to boost your immune system? Cold medicines generally only manage symptoms and do not actually cure the illness, but with nutritional support you can supply your immune system with what it needs to help you beat that cold or flu bug.
If taken immediately at the first signs and symptoms of a cold, supplements derived from the Echinacea herb are known to reduce severity and duration. The same is said to be true for a 1,000 mg dose of Vitamin C taken daily. The benefit of taking either supplement may lead to shortening the amount of time you have a cold and/or making it milder.
Boosting certain white blood cells called monocytes and lymphocytes may help rid a cold sooner. White blood cell production is supported by certain vitamins and minerals. The following are good food sources of these nutrients:
Citrus fruit (including orange juice) – folate, Vitamin C
Cocoa – copper
Dark green leafy vegetables – folate, copper, be... [Read More]

Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (June 8, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and Flying Saucer Presents proudly welcome GRAMMY-award winning Americana musician Jim Lauderdale & His Band on Friday, August 14, 2015. Tickets for Jim Lauderdale & His Band will go on sale to the public this Friday, June 12 at 10 a.m.
“Few current acts sing with the command and authority Lauderdale brings to his performances, and fewer still have a set of songs at their disposal as good...” - All Music Guide
Jim Lauderdale is a multiple GRAMMY and Americana Music Association Award-winning musician and one of the most respected artists working the Americana, Bluegrass and Country music communities today. His record, Buddy and Jim, which he wrote and recorded with longtime friend and collaborator Buddy Miller, was nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Americana Album category and several Americana Music Awards, a show which he has hosted since 2002.

Rock Band Modest Mouse To Perform at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre
St. Augustine, Fla. (May 26, 2015) – The St. Augustine Amphitheatre, in partnership with Jax Live Presents, proudly announce the return of indie rock band Modest Mouse to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Friday, July 17, 2015. Tickets for this concert event will go on sale to the general public this Friday, May 29 at 10 a.m.
Modest Mouse are one of the most surprising commercial success stories of the new millennium – while their music is by turns taut and elliptical, and the lyrics sometimes cryptic and introspective, the band broke through the mainstream audience with the platinum-selling Good News for People Who Love Bad News and they became genuine rock stars at a time when their musical peers remained cult figures.
Modest Mouse was formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington by singer/guitarist Isaac Brock, drummer Jeremiah Green and bassist Eric Judy. In 1994, Modest Mouse recorded its first EP, Blue Cadet-3, Do You Connect and also recorded what would have been its first album, Sad Sappy Sucker, but constant delays caused the album to be shelved and ultimately released in 2001. In 1996, the group officially released its debut album, This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About, on the independent ... [Read More]
Brian Adams To Perform In St. Augustine
St. Augustine, Fla. (May 11, 2015) – The St. Augustine Amphitheatre proudly announces that rock superstar Bryan Adams will be plugging in once again and hitting the road with a full band to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the multi-million selling album Reckless. The tour will make a stop at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Sunday, June 28, 2015. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, May 15 at 10 a.m.
Adams will be performing a set that will honor not only the 30th Anniversary of Reckless – a deluxe version of which has been released via UMC/Polydor this past November, featuring exclusive expanded bonus material – but also his endless catalogue of anthemic hits.
Since its release in 1984, Reckless has gone 5 times Platinum in the U.S. alone and has sold over 12 million worldwide. It spawned ground-breaking hits such as "Run to You", "Kids Wanna Rock", “Somebody", "Summer of '69", “One Night Love Affair" and "It's Only Love" a duet with the incomparable Tina Turner. Reckless also gave Bryan is first U.S. #1 on Billboard with "Heaven" as well as a Diamond Award for over a million sold in his home country of Canada. The a... [Read More]
Adrian Legg & David Lindley Coming To The PV Concert Hall
Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (May 12, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly announces that renowned guitarist Adrian Legg and multi-instrumentalist David Lindley will perform on Thursday, November 12, 2015. Tickets for Adrian Legg and David Lindley will go on sale to the general public this Friday, May 15 at 10 a.m.
Renowned and awarded for his unique amalgamation of acoustic and electric guitar and how he blends diverse musical styles and inspirations into a distinctive sound all his own, Adrian Legg has been hailed as “one of the wizards” of the guitar (Philadelphia Enquirer) and “a genius” (Los Angeles Reader). In addition to his distinguished career as a live performer, recording artist and composer, he is an innovator in guitar design and amplification technology, an instructor, photographer, writer and author, witty and engaging between song onstage raconteur, and an at large commentator for National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” among other gifts, pursuits and interests. Hence it’s no wonder that What’s Up magazine hails London-born Legg as “the greatest British import since Newcastle Brown Ale.” Born in 1948 in the London neighborhood of Hackney, the best way...

￼Classic Hard Rock Trio The Winery Dogs Coming To Ponte Vedra
Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (May 11, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall welcomes classic hard rock trio The Winery Dogs on Wednesday, October 14, 2015. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, May 15 at 10 a.m.
It would be easy to call The Winery Dogs a supergroup: Vocalist and guitarist Richie Kotzen made his mark with Poison and Mr. Big, bassist Billy Sheehan has been rocking for decades with Steve Vai, David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and others, and drummer Mike Portnoy was the co-founder of progressive metal superstars Dream Theater. But The Winery Dogs are so much more than a supergroup. Supergroups are usually short-lived entities composed of gifted players that jam out for little while and then quickly record with the hopes of catching lightning in a bottle. That's certainly not the case with The Winery Dogs, a cohesive, well-rounded classic-sounding trio with blazing songs that defy expectation. The group’s self-titled debut is filled with straightforward rock and roll inspired by some of their favorite bands, and their music transcends any of the styles they're best known for.
“We all have our own distinct voicings and styles, but we also have a common ground of music we grew up listening to,&rdquo... [Read More]
