Imagine slipping away down to Margaritaville without having to fly anywhere or take a boat. Well, that daydream is about to become a reality, so get your tequila-drinking dancing shoes ready.

Currently, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville does not exist in New England, but all that is about to change. Coming soon, Boston will be the newest home to the tequila slinging, island vibes restaurant and if you ask me, it can't come soon enough.

Personally, I've never been to any of Buffett's "Parrot Head" establishments, but now that it'll be within an hour and change away from the SouthCoast, it's one more excuse to ship up to Boston.

Before news broke of Buffett's restaurant, the only one that remained open in New England was over at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. According to Hartford Business, the restaurant that originally opened up back in September of 2008 had refused to renew its lease with the casino, closing its doors on January 2, 2019.

As for the new location of the North Shore Margaritaville, you'll soon be able to visit it over at 4 S Market Street in Boston at Faneuil Hall.

To get an idea of what to expect for those who have never experienced Jimmy Buffett's International "Cheeseburger in Paradise" oasis, here are some Yelp reviews from the past Mohegan Sun establishment:

- "Best best BEST place ever to have a birthday lunch w your pals. SALLY OUR WAITRESS was SO NICE AND CHARMING and brought so MUCH PERSONALITY AND CHARACTER to this establishment. Most of these stars are for her!!!! She even told us stories about KING James buffet. Love to sally and to jimmy for A GREAT ISLAND TIME." - Clara Q, Bennington, NH [5-Stars] 

- "You can most certainly catch me wasting away again in Margaritaville! Great food great service great drinks. Just a great fun time!" - Allie G, Kailua, HI [5-Stars]

- "This is mighty good tasting food. I normally get the coconut shrimp, very delicious. and they make mighty good margaritas. Well worth the price." - Kris W, Niantic, CT [5-Stars]

The only thing left to do is wait patiently for the Boston location to open so that the next time I "blow out my flip-flop," I'll have an excuse to slip on up to Buffett's Margaritaville where I know that there will always be "booze in a blender" to help me render my own Yelp Review.

Stay tuned, more information will be available soon enough.
