Where is it 5 o'clock?

In 2003 Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett released the song It's Five O'clock Somewhere. It went on to spend 8 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs. It also reached number 17 on the US Hot 100, making it a huge crossover hit.

This poses the question, where is it 5 o'clock exactly at this moment and what is going on in that area? My brother created a website http://wheresitfiveoclock.com based off of publically available material to determine where in the world it is 5 o'clock by using time zones and day light savings calculations. Sources include:
  1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki
  2. http://www.timeanddate.com/
  3. http://www.worldweatheronline.com/
  4. http://www.yelp.com/
I decided to create a windows phone application based off of the website http://wheresitfiveoclock.com/. This app shows you where it is currently 5 o'clock with the weather information. Hopefully, this app leads you to travel more and see more of the world. Leisure is important to your health so say it with us: It's 5 o'clock somewhere.
