Get ready to party like it is Cinco de Mayo this month. Local newspaper Creative Loafing Tampa will have their annual Margarita Wars competition on Friday, July 27th from 7PM to 10PM at TPepin’s Hospitality at 4121 North 50th Street in Tampa.
Guests will sample margaritas from more than 15 mixologists around town and vote for “Tampa Bay’s Best Margarita” while enjoying Mexican bites from top restaurants.
Margaritas are one of the most popular drinks in the United States and Americans drink up to 185,000 margaritas per hour according to The Nibble.
In fact, The United States is the number one tequila market in the world beating even Mexico. Not only that, but the South accounts for 34.9% of all margarita sales nationwide. It makes sense considering how hot it is.
Tickets start at $45 and are now on-sale. VIP attendees will enjoy an hour of early entry as well as other perks.
Local newspaper Creative Loafing will celebrate the opening of Tampa Bay Beer Week with an intimate craft beer festival called Meet the Brewers on Thursday, February 23rd, 2017. 20 of Tampa Bay’s brewers will be on-site serving craft beer samples from 7PM to 10PM.
