National Margarita Day is happening on Wednesday, Feb. 22, and there are plenty of Philadelphia bars and restaurants offering deals on food and drinks to celebrate.

Few cocktails are as widely loved as the margarita. Whether frozen or on the rocks, classic or packed with different flavors, the tequila-based drink is a staple on any bar menu. 

Since it's almost National Margarita Day, an unofficial holiday held each year on Feb. 22, there are plenty of bars and restaurants throughout Philadelphia offering food and drink specials to celebrate. This selection of eateries has a little bit of everything — nacho pairings, cocktail flights and opportunities to take to the stage and jam out with live musicians.
