Question: What do [lastfm link_type=”similar_artist_radio”]The Beach Boys[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”similar_artist_radio”]KISS[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=”similar_artist_radio”]Ryan Gosling[/lastfm] all have in common?

A) They perform with a band

B) They’ve made an onscreen cameo

C) They opened a restaurant

D) All of the above

Good Vibrations

Beach Boys

Good Vibrations,” the Beach Boys’ surf-fusion restaurant is scheduled to open summer of 2012. Typical of the band’s music, the restaurant will include cars, surfin’, and women. Sounds like a dream come true!

While the dining menu is kept under wraps for now, restaurateurs speculate a palette consisting of fish, Americana, bar food, and other casual dining affairs.

BBQ & Beer

Lynyrd Skynyrd

BBQ & Beer” is a restaurant that is self-explanatory by nature. Here at JACK we tend to fancy words that start with the letter “B” including bbq, beer, booze, Bonanza… Nonetheless, Lynyrd Skynyrd seems to have successfully won us over before even eating at their Las Vegas bbq joint.

Opening in December of 2011, the restaurant will feature Texas-style BBQ, including southern favorites like biscuits and gravy, ribs, brisket and pulled pork.

Margaritaville &

Cheeseburger In Paradise

Jimmy Buffett

Ahh, Jimmy. Always wasting away again in Margaritaville, while eating a Cheeseburger in Paradise. Be a lush! Kick back and relax! Have your burger-and eat it too.

Jimmy Buffett isn’t new the restaurant game. Both his franchises have done very well since opening all across America. His newest venture? Margartiaville – THE VEGAS CASINO.

You quite possibly could leave this place with a Blur. “Kaffibarinn“, a bar co-owned by Damon Albarn of Blur will save you from a burr.

Sure, it might take you a while to get there. After all, Iceland ain’t just around the corner. Girls who are boys who like boys to be girls will be there so there’s most likely something for everyone.


Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling seems like a multi-skilled guy. Did you know he was part of the band Dead Man’s Bones? What a hearthrob. But don’t go getting a big head, Ryan…we know about your roots in the Mickey Mouse club.

The looks of this North African/Moroccan restaurant “Tagine” are phenomenal. Hopefully no dead man’s bones voodoo nonsense went on in the kitchen. With dishes like the slow cooked lamb shank, a sweet and spicy filo pastry with almonds and cinnamon, and the traditional chicken tagine, your taste-buds are in for a very exotic ride.

Kiss Coffee House


Kiss Coffee House, home of the World Famous Frozen Rockuccino! Here at Jack we officially declare a brain freeze.

As KISS currently has a thriving coffeehouse in Myrtle Beach, SC there are rumors that Las Vegas could be the next location. Join JACK as we “Rock and roll all nite, and drink coffee every day”.
