National Margarita Day – National Tortilla Chip Day

National Margarita Day

Not to be out done by National Tortilla Chip Day

Like the age old saying , “which came first, the chicken or the egg?”, margaritas and Tortilla chips practically go hand in hand. Since National margarita day and National tortilla chip day fall on the same weekend, we decided to make it extra special for you. For the whole weekend (Feb 22nd-Feb 24th) we will be serving up these Mexican food and drink specials.

 

National Margarita Day – Feb 22nd

When it comes to sorting out the legends associated with the origin of the margarita, there are many. Two things are certain; the cocktail included tequila, and the bartender edged the rim of the glass with salt. In Mexico, when drinking straight tequila (especially if the quality was bad), the best course of action was to down it in one swallow, suck on a wedge of lime and lick a dash of salt off the back of your hand.

It makes sense that the salt followed the lime and the tequila to the margarita glass. Today, lime is not the only flavor of margarita, and the specialists behind the bar have gotten creative mixing dried herbs, infused sugars and exotic salts to enhance both the presentation of the glass and the flavor of the cocktail.”

In honor of National Margarita day we are serving up our 22oz watermelon and blood orange margaritas with a tajin rim. Yes, you read that right,22oz. These super sized margs will only cost $11 on FRIDAY. The rest of the weekend you can enjoy these flavors in a glass, pint or pitcher. ($10 glass, $14 pint and $36 for the pitcher)

 

National Tortilla Chip Day Feb 24th

Even though tortilla chips have always been considered to be a Mexican food, known as tostados, they were first mass-produced in Los Angeles in the late 1940s. It is said that the triangle-shaped tortilla chips were made popular by Rebecca Webb Carranza as a way to use the misshapen tortillas that were rejected from the automated tortilla manufacturing machine that she and her husband used at their Los Angeles deli and tortilla factory.”

Like we said before, you can’t have margaritas without tortilla chips. So since both these popular days fall on the same weekend we will be giving away free chips and salsa all weekend.

Unfortunately, there are no refills.  But you can always order some of our amazing gourmet tacos and get your fill of our house made queso.

 

There are a lot of National Days on the calendar, but these two make for an exciting weekend. Call your friends and tell them to meet you at Tacos and Beer. These specials will be going on all weekend, Feb. 22nd – Feb 23rd.

10 Craft Beers To Try in 2019

10 Craft Beers In Las Vegas To Try In 2019

Over the last few years craft beers have become all the rage. Going to a bar and ordering a bud light or coors is now considered taboo.  If you’re new to the craft beer scene, it’s hard to know where to start with such a growing list of breweries and beer connoisseurs. So, we’re doing you a solid by giving you our list of top 10 craft beers to try in 2019.

After you try them all you might want to take it to the next level and join other self proclaimed ‘beer geeks’ by signing up for beer conventions, using the popular Untappd app, or hoarding hard to get beers.

What is Craft Beer?

Craft beer is defined as a beer made in a traditional or non-mechanized way by a small brewery. Most people think of it as beer for hipsters and millennials, but in 2019 craft beer will be more mainstream then ever before.

9. Evil Twin Brewing-  Even More Jesus

A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually, the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare! 12%ABV. We have this beauty on draft, make sure you put it towards the top of your ‘to drink’ list.

10. Firestone Walker Peachy Bones

These California white peaches from Sanger, CA are fermented with a brett’d saison that has been maturing four months in French oak barrels. The synergy between fresh peach, wild microflora and oak components create a bright white peach flavor mingling with spicy yeast and oak aromas. Soft acidity and a firm carbonation lend “pop” to the overall sensory experience. It took four separate fermentations to create this concoction. Santé!
