As if you needed an excuse to have a few margaritas, the Mexican restaurants of the same name will be celebrating their 25th anniversary Friday with margaritas made with Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver Tequila.
But wait, there's more!
The restaurants will be throwing simultaneous parties at all their locations beginning at 4 p.m. in the lounge area. The gatherings will feature retro music, hourly giveaways of $25 Margaritas gift cards, trivia, and a "Two for $25" promotion that offers hungry gringos two entrees and an appetizer for $25.
There are five Margaritas in Maine, inlcuding two in Portland at 11 Brown St. and 242 St. John St. The others are located in Auburn, Augusta and Orono.
