It’s closer than you think! The new, much frothed-over (especially by “Parrotheads,” but also by Las Vegas blogs who enjoy some Vegas newness) Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Casino is coming to Flamingo Las Vegas.

We’ve got an exclusive first look at renderings of the interior of the new casino. And by “exclusive first look,” of course, we mean “assuming you didn’t see them on the USA Today Web site first.”

The "5 O'Clock Somewhere" bar will be the centerpiece of the new casino.

Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Casino is set to officially salt its first rim (not a euphemism) on Oct. 1, 2011.

This is the first casino gaming area to bear the Margaritaville name. We know this because it said so quite clearly in the news release we copied and pasted it from.

The Margaritaville Casino will be directly accessible from the Strip sidewalk outside Flamingo Las Vegas and will feature 15,000-square-feet of gaming space. Because who doesn’t measure their fun by the number of square feet it takes up, baby?

Oh, the new casino will feature 22 gaming tables and 220 slot machines. Now, we’re getting somewhere.

We. Like. Play. And possibly drink. Here.

Grand opening bashes (in the form of street parties) are scheduled for Oct. 15 and 22 at Flamingo Vegas, dates that align with full-blown concerts by Jimmy Buffett at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
