Nothing says "late February vibes" like declaring a booze holiday at the end of such a dreary month, so on Wed., Feb. 22, wrap yourself in the tequila-soaked embrace of National Margarita Day. This year, Mexican restaurants across the region are celebrating by serving up a variety of deals, from regular happy hours to exclusive, one-day-only events.

Pittsburgh City Paper compiled a list of some National Margarita Day happenings to check out.

Bahama Breeze
6100 Robinson Center Drive, Robinson Township.

Make a "date" with Bahama Breeze, which will mark National Margarita Day with the chain's Classic Margaritas priced at a celebratory $2.22.

Condado Tacos
Multiple locations.

Condado Tacos touts itself as the "king" of house-made, hand-crafted, fresh-fruit puree margaritas. See if the chain lives up to its own hype by adding blood orange, mango, muddled jalapeño, pineapple, prickly pear, strawberry, or white peach to a margarita. Condado Rewards members can add any of the puree flavors for free (this applies to both individual drinks and marg pitchers). Guests stopping in on National Margarita Day will also receive free “Large Marge” margarita glassware with any beverage purchase.
