What is Escape to Margaritaville about?
Escape to Margaritaville follows the fortunes of a charming bartender and singer Tully, who spends his days between shifts seducing the rich female tourists on the tropical island of Margaritaville. Known as a local ladykiller, Tully can sweet-talk his way out of almost any scrape he finds himself in, whether it be an irate husband or frustrated boss. That is until the arrival of a lone, single female tourist who takes her career seriously; Tully falls head over heels but she is as frosty as the drinks he serves behind the bar. Can he win her heart before she flies home, and will the swaying palms and warm summer breeze convince them to both change their ways?
