Apparently there’s some dissension about who started National Margarita Day, with multiple bartenders claiming to have started it. (If I knew for sure who did it, I’d ask them “Why February???”) But any excuse for a celebration, right?
National Margarita Day is February 22 each year and many Wichita restaurants and drinking establishments offer special promotions. Here are the ones in and around Wichita that we know of. Have you heard of any Margarita Day deals we’ve missed?
Carlos O’Kelly’s is celebrating National Margarita Day from Feb. 20-22, with $3 Jumbo margaritas served in a collectors cup (for dine-in only) and $6 Margs to go (reg. $12).
Chicken N Pickle has a Margarita Day special: All day on Feb. 22, get Una Vida Margarita Flights for $8.
Chili’s has $5 margaritas all day every day during the month of February. The 2021 February flavor is “Grand Romance Rita,” made with Monin Pomegranate, Chili’s fresh sour and “a little love.”
Fuzzy’s Taco Shop on N. Rock Road and on the WSU campus are celebrating National Margarita Day all weekend so you can socially distance your celebration. They’ll have $2 house margaritas (12 oz.) and $5 Mankin Woodys (18 oz.), which is a house margarita with a sunken Coronita. Available frozen or on the rocks, dine-in only.
Molino’s Cuisine is planning a whole day of tequila and lime with its National Margarita Day special: House margaritas for only $1.40 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Molino’s Taqueria on Rock Road is one-upping them with $1 frozen margaritas all day on National Margarita Day (Feb. 22).
On the Border offers the 1800 Grande ‘Rita for $5 on National Margarita Day or you can go for one of OTB’s signature flavors like Mango Tango, Blue Lagoon, or Strawbrrrita.
Spangles celebrates every day with 99-cent margaritas, so you don’t have to wait until February 22. The offer is for dine-in only, so don’t expect to get one when you pull up to the drive-through. 🙂
Applebee’s has a drink special this month on two drinks. They’re not margaritas, but they’re frozen and they’re blue. For winter, get $5 Snowy Sips: either a Tipsy Snowman or a Blue Raspberry Freeze.
So now that you know about some restaurants around town with National Margarita Day deals, your only problem will be choosing which one you like best. (And, I guess, whether you want yours frozen or not. Brr. It’s been pretty cold here in Wichita lately!!)
Make sure to have your designated driver around, and buy him or her a nice meal for their trouble!
