Almost Time for The Tampa Bay Margarita Festival!
There’s a rumor going around that margaritas are Tampa’s drink of choice. I have no idea if that’s true or not but I know if I had to pick a poison tequila is by far the tastiest! Maybe it comes from spending so many weekends in Tijuana when I was younger or maybe it’s just that good, I don’t know.
Regardless, if you are also a fan you really need to join my out at the Tampa Bay Margarita Festival coming up Saturday, May 24th. There will be margaritas with Sauza (an old favorite of mine), Cabo Wabo (a favorite of everyone’s) and tons of other different tequilas. Bud Light’s Lime-A-Rita will be there and if you aren’t a tequila fan there’s Coronas and HRM Rex Goliath wine. And also, apparently there will be naked turtles there. Strange but true.
Of course they have to keep your designated driver happy too, so there will be lots of music and games and the evening will be topped off with fireworks. Los Lonely Boys will be headlining the show and there are plenty other bands starting after the gates open at 1:00. I for one cannot resist sitting on the lawn listening to live music, I can’t wait. Here’s a sample of one of the bands, Thomas Wynn & The Believers. Try and tell me this and a margarita isn’t the definition of a perfect chill weekend.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bt_4oVnWXLM?rel=0]
The festival will be at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park and is being put on by the same people who did the Tampa Spring Beer Fling so I expect it will be a blast. Which is why you want to go too, right? You can get your tickets here, they’re $15 now or $20 at the door for general admission or for $85 ($100 at the door) you can VIP it and your ticket will include all of your margaritas. Sounds good to me!
What could be better? How about winning a pair of general admission tickets? I have 2 pairs to give away, I’ll announce the winners here Tuesday the 20th.

I received two VIP tickets to The Tampa Bay Margarita Festival in exchange for writing a review and this giveaway. As always, my opinions are all mine.
So, will you be there?
I wish I could drink right now. Margaritas are one of my favorite things about Summertime. This festival looks like a lot of fun too!
Margaritas ARE awesome but there will be plenty of time for those after your little one is here. Or after (s)he’s sleeping through the night. Or after…
Oh I wish I could go (not to mention be sipping a margarita at 10:30 in the morning), but I’m already committed to other festivities. Can’t wait to read how it goes! 🙂
I’m pretty sure margaritas at 10:30 in the morning = nap-time by noon. Have fun at your festivities!
I prefer frozen margaritas! With the heat of florida who wouldn’t love an icy cold margarita?!
I definitely prepare on the rocks
