National Margarita Day

When: Mon., Feb. 22 2016

February 22 is burned in our brains as National Margarita Day, and has been since time immemorial. Even the stoutest hombre's heart melts when the carolers arrive at the door and sing the opening notes of "Mas Tequila." And who doesn't have fond memories of those tiny margaritas that were served with school lunches? If your long-standing NMD plans have fallen through, the Hacienda (9748 Manchester Road; www.hacienda-stl.com) has you covered. The Rock Hill restaurant has seven different types of margaritas on the menu, and on a normal Monday, one dollar from the price of each (or $5 from the price of a pitcher) is donated to charity under the restaurant's "Margs for a Mission" program. For NMD, those donations are doubled — so you can perform the required obeisance to the holiday and do twice the good. And isn't doing good what this holiday is all about?
