Although it is not quite Cinco De Mayo, one can celebrate National Margarita Day this Friday, February 22, 2013. With bitter cold weather and snow in abundance, it’s a perfect time to celebrate the Margarita that with its name reminds you of friends, good times and warmer weather. Cantina Laredo in Midtown Crossing is running $4 margaritas all day on Friday, February 22. While you are there, Cantina Laredo has a new drink menu worth checking out. Another Margarita hot spot is Rivera’s Mexican Food, located at 12047 Blondo Street. Heck, if you find a good Margarita, Facebook DishOmaha and tell me about it.
