On This Day: National Margarita Day

MargaritaFrozen, on the rocks, sugar, salt, it doesn’t matter!  It’s the only day of the year that you can get away with drinking margarita’s all day.  What makes matters worse?  The fact that Downtown Dan is probably celebrating right now while he’s on the beach in Aruba.  Sometimes life just isn’t fair!  Do you have a flavor of choice?  One of our favorites is the “Jimbo” from Bombers Burrito Barhalf margarita, half beer.  The description sums it up perfectly: “Sounds weird. Tastes great!”  Sounds tempting…right…now!
