D) All of the above

Good Vibrations

Beach Boys

Good Vibrations,” the Beach Boys’ surf-fusion restaurant is scheduled to open summer of 2012. Typical of the band’s music, the restaurant will include cars, surfin’, and women. Sounds like a dream come true!

While the dining menu is kept under wraps for now, restaurateurs speculate a palette consisting of fish, Americana, bar food, and other casual dining affairs.

BBQ & Beer

Lynyrd Skynyrd

BBQ & Beer” is a restaurant that is self-explanatory by nature. Here at JACK we tend to fancy words that start with the letter “B” including bbq, beer, booze, Bonanza… Nonetheless, Lynyrd Skynyrd seems to have successfully won us over before even eating at their Las Vegas bbq joint.

Opening in December of 2011, the restaurant will feature Texas-style BBQ, including southern favorites like biscuits and gravy, ribs, brisket and pulled pork.

Margaritaville &

Cheeseburger In Paradise

Jimmy Buffett

Ahh, Jimmy. Always wasting away again in Margaritaville, while eating a Cheeseburger in Paradise. Be a lush! Kick back and relax! Have your burger-and eat it too.

Jimmy Buffett isn’t new the restaurant game. Both his franchises have done very well since opening all across America. His newest venture? Margartiaville – THE VEGAS CASINO.
