Ruh Roh, It's National Tequila Day!

Why National Tequila Day is not celebrated around the time of Cinco de Mayo is beyond me, but who am I to complain?! If a bunch of liquor executives got together in an board room somewhere and threw darts at a calendar, and the first date they hit was July 24, then more power to them! It doesn't matter what time of the year it is, I'm going to celebrate regardless! So, today is National Tequila Day, and that means I need to find all the best margarita deals in town! I'm pretty sure Las Margaritas restaurant right down the street from me will have some great deals, and probably Cantina 101 over by the University of Florida, so it appears I may have some great options! As long as I don't do straight tequila shots, I may survive this day! Luckily, margaritas are one of my favorite types of adult beverages! So if you need me today, I'll be passed out under a barstool!

I found out the hard way that Tequila in English means "To-kill-ya".

LOL...I almost put that line in my post! That's definitely the effect tequila has on me! And tequila in Spanish means, "let's go over here and lay down and have ourselves a little siesta!"

@just4him I'm very careful when it comes to those things. I want to set a good example for my two teenage children!

I used to drink a lot of tequila too, but I got tired of having to call all my friends to bail me out of jail as a result of all the stupid stuff I would do after drinking too much tequila.

@moffittjc Yeah, ain't it amazing that that stuff makes you feel invincible?

@nanette64 It's very interesting that I don't get that same "I'm invincible" feeling from other types of liquor, just tequila. I feel like I can single-handedly take on the world when I've been drinking tequila. I wonder why that is? Do you think the worm has some magical powers? lol

I didn't know there is a celebration for Tequila, it's interesting to find out more about it. I didn't drink much liquor, but Tequila is one of my favorites and I like margaritas too. Hope you will enjoy the Tequila Day and have fun in the bar.

I think if you search hard enough, you will find a celebration for just about everything you can think of!

In general, tequila is not a good plan for anyone, but I think we can make an exception on a fine day like today! lol
