Hurricane Ian Monday 8pm Update – Warnings Are Out: Trying to find a positive here. In the Hurricane Ian Monday 8pm update at least it didn't get any bigger in the last 3 hours.…

I’m quite fascinated by the construction progress being made on the new Margaritaville on Fort Myers Beach. As we’re all aware, this resort is going to drastically alter everything you see as you cross the bridge onto the beach from the North end. Is it going to be a good or a bad change, that’s yet to be determined.

Whenever I see these videos, I remember back to playing the ring game at Dusseldorf’s in the plaza that once occupied that same spot. Forever ago. Reminiscing aside, Brian Kennedy was out with his drone yesterday to check on the progress of Margaritaville. Not a huge noticeable change on the main part of the resort from the last video from August. It really looks like they’ve been focusing on the area near the beach. The waterpark stuff. The buildings look like they’re heading a lot more towards completion and I’m seeing footers where I’m guessing the waterpark attractions are going to be. I think I remember some sort of water slides. The walkway bridge looks like it turned out perfectly.

 

The Fort Myers Beach Margaritaville isn’t completed, so here’s a list of other places to grab a cheeseburger this weekend:

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times.  There is a day to celebrate everything.  This weekend, we celebrate the cheeseburger.

We just celebrated the double cheeseburger on September 13th.  According to NationalCalendarDay.com, we will next celebrate the close relative, Cheeseburger, on National Cheeseburger Day, which is September 18th.

With the holiday falling on a Sunday, during football season of course, what a perfect time to celebrate!  Nothing goes better with football than some burgers and beers.  Well, maybe pizza and wings, but they have their own days, so they can take a break this weekend.  For future reference, National Wing Day just passed on July 29th.  But, lucky for us, National Pizza Day is on the horizon, on November 12th.

If you don’t feel like firing up the grill to make your own burgers at home, then hit up some of the places offering deals this weekend.  There are plenty to choose from.  As always, make sure you check with the locations in your area to be sure they’re participating.

Thanks to some help from the crew over at ChewBoom, we’ve put together this list of Freebies & Deals For National Cheeseburger Day In Southwest Florida.
