The Fort Myers Mighty Mussels are celebrating the sights and sounds of the tropics with a night of cocktails, music and baseball under the lights of Hammond Stadium at the Lee Health Sports Complex.

The team’s inaugural Margaritaville Night on Saturday, May 11 features culinary upgrades and specials at concession stands, including a Cheeseburger in Paradise, Key Lime Pie, and Fish and Chip combos. Fans ages 21 and older can enjoy Mussel Up Margarita Buckets, as well as Landshark Lager by Margaritaville Brewing Co. giveaway items provided by Suncoast Beverage. Margaritaville Night will be capped by a free postgame concert from Trop Rock Junkies, a St. Petersburg-based band that taps into the music of Jimmy Buffet, Zac Brown Band and others to create tropical-themed beach rock.

“Margaritaville Night offers a great opportunity to just kick back, relax and enjoy a cold drink while watching a baseball game,” said Mighty Mussels President Chris Peters. “To capture the spirit of Margaritaville, we’re hoping fans bring the beach to the ballpark and come dressed in flip flops, Bermuda shorts, floral-print shirts and other beach attire.”
