Greg Garcia Biography

Greg created three back-to-back syndicated comedies: “Yes, Dear,” “My Name is Earl,” “Raising Hope.” He has written on a variety of other sitcoms, including “Family Matters” and “Family Guy,” and won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for the pilot of “My Name is Earl.” Garcia entered the world of musical theatre for the sole reason of hoping his oldest son Camden, a very talented actor at Boston University, would think he was cool. When he’s not writing, directing and producing TV shows, he likes to watch hockey with his son Nathan, play board games with his son Trace and walk Mabel the dog on the beach with his amazing wife Kim.

The staff are attired in tropical shirts. Beach balls float overhead. And although I spotted no tourists covered in oil, margaritas flowed freely from the makeshift tiki bar in the corner of the lobby.

Imagine a place where the sun is hot, the water's warm, and the drinks are as cold as they are plentiful. Welcome to Margaritaville, the island paradise where city folk get away from it all, and the locals get into the kind of trouble you can almost always sweet talk your way out of. Take a nice long break from your troubles, make some new friends at the bar, and kick back to the soothing sounds of the kettledrum. It doesn't get much better than this.
