His show features a wide range of fan favorites such as “Margaritaville” and “Fins”, plus Buffett concert staples like “Brown Eyed Girl,” “Uncle John’s Band,” and, of course, “A Pirate Looks at 40.”

 “Summertime is almost here and we thought it would be lots of fun to celebrate,” commented Mezzos’ co-owner, Dan Bowser. “We’re encouraging everyone to get into that Buffett spirit. Don on your Hawaiian shirt and flip-flops and have a good time. Bring your friends, enjoy the music and get into that Caribbean feeling. Mezzos is the place to meet!”

 The Tom Watt & the Fruitcakes show starts at 8 pm but Mezzos has planned a whole afternoon of fun. The Buffett Day starts at 3 pm with specials on Cheeseburgers in Paradise, Margaritas and Hurricanes, and Corona Beer.  Kicking off the fun is local band Twisted Unplugged featuring Larry Bonner, Chris Haines and Gary Riggleman playing a variety of acoustic favorites.
