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?
Applebee’s – It’s not a margarita, but it’s a great boozy bargain. Applebee’s is serving up two seasonal sips for winter — Tipsy Cupid and Date Night Daiquiri. Each drink is only $5. And, of course, the popular restaurant serves margaritas, too. Ask about any National Margarita Day specials at your neighborhood location.
Carlos O’Kelly’s – Get your Jumbo Margs served in a Carlos collector’s cup (while supplies last) for only $2.22 this Tuesday – or TWOsday! – on 2/22/22, which coincides with National Margarita Day! It’s all day, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Lemon-Lime Rocks.
