Tequila is part of the Mexican heritage and is held to a particular standard, which is we guess the reason for National Tequila Day. Whatever the reason may be, we are happy they do it - at Vallarta's tonight find tequila specials and also a special happy hour on Margaritas all day long!!! Cheers!!!

Sometimes you just gotta know when to give in and have a margarita, or two, or three!  Here are a few tasty tequilas to try National Tequila Day: Justin Timberlake's, 901 Silver Tequila ~ Vince Neil's Tres Rios Tequila ~ Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Tequila and George Clooney's Casamigos Tequila. We've given you lots of options and encourage you to try at least one place and one tequila you've not been to or tasted before hitting up your favorite Blanco, Reposado and Anejo spot! National Tequila Day has no discernible origins, are we surprised? But how happy are we that through some fortunate twist(s) of fate, July 24th will forever remain, National Tequila Day in Tampa! (all photos from respective Facebook Pages, cover photo Wiki Commons)
