No cheeseburgers in paradise | September 30, 2014
Jimmy Buffet wrote his popular song, Cheeseburger in Paradise, about the pleasure of a wonderful cheeseburger. There are disagreements about whether Jimmy’s famous cheeseburger originated at Pirate’s Cove Marina in Josephine, Ala., or Cabbage Key, Fla. Maybe he was writing about both since there is no shortage of great cheeseburgers.

I have wonderful college memories of double cheeseburgers at the Smokehouse Pool Room in downtown Florence, Ala., (the best I have ever had — even better than those at Pirate’s Cove). Maybe you, too, had a memorable cheeseburger in your past. Sadly, our children and grandchildren may be deprived of fond cheeseburger memories if certain people have their way.
