May 14, 2016

You know what they say - life should be taken with a grain of salt… a slice of lime... and a healthy dose of tequila. This May, 30 bars and restaurants across America's Finest City are competing to see who makes San Diego’s best margarita by offering up their signature concoctions at a discount all month long, culminating in a Margarita Month Grand Tasting party on Saturday, June 11, where attendees will get the chance to taste samples of every cocktail. We are raffling off 2 tickets to the Grand Tasting, as well as offering promo code SDVILLE to save $5 per ticket.

You don’t have to cross the border to follow these words of wisdom! The month of May has been dubbed San Diego’s “Margarita Month” and bars and restaurants across San Diego are competing to make the city’s best version of the original craft cocktail. After ordering a featured margarita, post a photo of it on Instagram with the venue’s hashtag and #margaritamonth for a chance to win $1,550 in the form of $50 gift certificates from each participating venue. The more venues hashtagged, the better the chances of winning.
