Margaritaville developers meet the gaming commission next week

The group that wants to open Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Casino and Restaurant pitches its plan to the Mississippi Gaming Commission next week. A special meeting will be held in Biloxi on April 7. At that time, Margaritaville developers will ask for site approval, and for permission to proceed with the project.

This Margaritaville site is on Biloxi's eastern tip. The 5th Street location is adjacent to the Back Bay. MVB Holding LLC is the investment group proposing the Jimmy Buffett project.

The gaming commission meeting next Thursday begins at 1:30. It will be held in the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources office on Bayview Avenue in Biloxi.
