Weather isn’t all the Motor City shared with Key West this week. On Saturday, it had Jimmy Buffett.

“You can talk about the shark hats and the Parrotheads,” opening act Jackson Browne said of the breezy, cocktail blender-centric culture surrounding Buffett. “It really doesn’t describe it.”

After “A Pirate Looks at Forty,” Buffett said: “It’s time to remake this town.”

Bloomfield Hills attorney Ronnie O’Hara and her husband, Dan, said Buffett visited Birmingham Country Club while in town.

“(Buffett) said he loves Detroit,” she said, “He’s so happy Detroit’s coming back.”

The poignant “Oldest Surfer on the Beach,” reminiscent of Buffett’s best work, closed the show.

“There’s nothing that I won’t do, no place I’m trying to reach,” sang the 66-year-old whose music has become a lifestyle. “Only time is now more precious to the oldest surfer on the beach.”
