On Thursday, September 28th, the city of West Palm Beach will come alive to honor a man who needs no introduction – the one and only Jimmy Buffett. It's a day when flip-flops become the official footwear, and the sound of steel drums fills the air. Welcome to "Clematis by Night Celebrates Jimmy Buffett."
Jimmy Buffett, a lover of margaritas, and poster-boy of leisure has left an undeniable mark on the world of music and the art of living life to the fullest. To pay homage to the man who gave us timeless hits, West Palm Beach is throwing the ultimate concert along the waterfront.
The centerpiece of this tribute is none other than "The Caribbean Chillers," Florida's favorite Jimmy Buffett tribute band. Led by Jason Webb, the band will transport you to a Margaritaville state of mind. Expect to hear all the classics, from the soothing melodies of "Margaritaville" to "Cheeseburger in Paradise." They'll take you on a musical journey through the sea of Buffett's hits.
The celebration kicks off at 6 p.m. sharp, but it's not all about the music. At 7 p.m., West Palm Beach Mayor Keith A. James will officially declare the day as "Jimmy Buffett Day." It's a fitting tribute to a man who has not only brought us unforgettable tunes but also contributed to the local community in countless ways.
And of course, no Buffett-themed party would be complete without some delicious food and drinks. Local vendors like A Kitchen DB, Coconut Bar, Palm Beach Cider Donuts, Pepe's Hey Babe, and Poblano South will be serving up a feast fit for a Parrothead. From bold empanadas to organic, sugar-free juices, and mouthwatering brisket grilled cheese, there's something to satisfy every craving. And for those who crave a taste of paradise, Poblano South may even whip up a special tribute burger for the occasion.
Whether you're a die-hard Parrothead, a casual fan, or just someone who appreciates the laid-back vibe that Jimmy Buffett has brought to the world, "Clematis by Night Celebrates Jimmy Buffett" is the place to be on September 28th. It's a day to raise a margarita, savor a cheeseburger in paradise, and honor the musical legacy of a true legend. So, don your Hawaiian shirts, grab your flip-flops, and join the party as West Palm Beach comes alive in the spirit of Jimmy Buffett.
