It's a great day for a margarita! Then again, aren't they all?

February 22nd is also known as National Margarita Day, and this year that happens to fall on the best day of the week... Friday!

When it comes to margaritas, I'm fairly traditional. I like lime or strawberry, on the rocks, with salt on the rim. Jumbo size, obviously! Oh, and if you pair them with chips & queso they're even better. There are some fantastic local Mexican restaurants that make some killer margs:

In honor of today's holiday, I used Facebook to find out some of the deals local Mexican restaurants will be offering. I'm sure there are other spots offering specials today, but here are the ones I was able to confirm:
