While examining Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritavich I was constrained to view many items he apparently uses day to day. So in the same totally frivolous spirit that prompted Rolling Stone to publish a story on Bob Dylan’s garbage back in the day, I submit the following:

The author of “Cheeseburger in Paradise” actually cooks his cheeseburgers on a custom, gas-fired Galleymate grill from Australia. It’s a solid stainless steel lollapalooza, too. Moreover, from the carbon buildup I observed, I’d say the guy’s still into seriously paradising burgers, with Heinz ketchup, French’s mustard, and Hellmann’s mayo, all of which I spotted in the galley Sub-Zero.

The stereo system? Believe it or not, “Nothing that fancy,” according to Rybovich Spencer president Jim Bronstien. A Pioneer CDX-P680 off-the-shelfer with four Polyplanar speakers topside and two below decks is what I noted during our test. And no CDs anywhere. Not even one of Alan Jackson’s.

And finally, fishing rods. The ones I found bracketed in the saloon (over the inlaid dinette table) were exclusively of the saltwater fly-fishing variety, from Orvis and G. Loomis. The reels I have no info on—the darn things were encased in canvas covers and impossible to examine without overstepping the bounds of propriety. —B.P.
