National Margarita Day is just around the corner, and it's the perfect excuse to grab one of the tequila laced cocktails at your favorite happy hour after a long day of work.
The unofficial holiday takes place on Tuesday, Feb. 22, and there are plenty of places around Philadelphia and its suburbs where you can celebrate. This selection of restaurants and bars has a little bit of everything — fruit-flavored or traditional, Taco Tuesday pairings, take-home kits, and even some $5 specials.
The Northern Liberties restaurant is celebrating National Margarita Day alongside its new Bottomless Taco Tuesday experience. From 12 until 10 p.m., visitors can grab two $22 discounted margarita flights, in two flavor profiles. One is a mix of tanteo spirits, including añejo, resposado, jalapeño, and blanco margaritas. The other has more fun flavors, including blue raspberry, peach pomegranate, citrus, and mixed berry.
From 5 until 9 p.m., Añejo will host its $25 bottomless Taco Tuesday deal, with lamb barbacoa, wild mushroom, crispy cauliflower, crispy fish, crispy gulf shrimp, chicken al pastor, pork carnitas, and a weekly exclusive. On Feb. 22, the exclusive offering is a cheesesteak taco. Each guest at the table must order the experience. The special also includes rice, beans, and house-made chips and salsa.
Those who order the Bottomless Taco deal will also have access to an extended happy hour, which includes $24 margarita pitchers.
