National Margarita Day offers tropical break

Mary Pickels
There is a 'day' for just about everything, and if you enjoy margaritas, Feb. 22 is your day. Shown is a classic margarita, typically made with tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice, shaken and served in a salt-rimmed glass.
Mad Mex locations are celebrating National Margarita Day on Feb. 22 with 'happy hora' pricing.
Along with drink deals, Bahama Breeze is offering mani shades to match your margarita on National Margarita Day.

It may not be five o’clock where you are, but it’s National Margarita Day all day on Thursday.

The national salute to the tequila-based sweet, yet salty, happy hour favorite is celebrated every year on Feb. 22.

Easy to remember and, apparently, eagerly anticipated.

A little advice, from one restaurateur.

And some advice to this young woman as she plans her 21st birthday celebration on Feb. 22. Take it easy, 21. Save your liver and look forward to more margaritas — and birthdays —ahead.

This may be unfair advertising.

Not sure this event will work out as planned but, skill acquisition or not, should be fun.

This is one colorful margarita.

Finally, if you want to party all day, line up your vacation request asap.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
