Wasting Away in Margaritaville
|On National Margarita Day (February 22), the margaritas will be flying at Margaritaville.|
Fittingly, Jimmy Buffett, as the unofficial arbiter of all things tequila, will celebrate this "holiday" at his Margaritaville restaurants with drink and food specials. Buffett certainly knows about the infamous cocktail he croons about. His Margaritaville chain of restaurants serves 2.7 million margaritas annually. Locally, there are four Margaritaville locations in Florida, including Key West, Orlando, Myrtle Beach and Panama City Beach.
The margaritas will be flying at Margaritaville as Parrotheads gather to get soused on tequila. Anyone celebrating a birthday on Monday will receive a $22.20 gift certificate to use during a visit to Margaritaville. Additionally, if you were born on 2/22/1922, you will receive complimentary food and beverage throughout the day. (And if you are still drinking margaritas at age 88, good for you!) Oh, and if your name happens to be Margarita or Rita, you will be gifted with a free bottle of Margaritaville margarita mix. No word on whether Buffett will be singing his signature song at any of his locations.
