There were awarded for being the first people in line, and most likely the most spirited, with two tickets to the Jimmy Buffett concert that will take place Oct. 15, the day after the official Grand Opening of Margaritaville Casino at the Flamingo. They planned to be at the Flamingo to get a taste of “Lucky Rita” that weekend already and were more than happy to extend their stay for the show.
