Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Celebrates National Margarita Day

On Monday, February 22nd, America will celebrate National Margarita Day, and there will be no better place to take part in the festivities than Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville locations across the country from Key West to Las Vegas to New Orleans.

While the Margarita may have been created in 1948 on the hillsides of Acapulco, it wasn’t perfected until Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville opened in Key West in the 1980’s. Nationwide, the Margaritaville restaurants now serve-up over 2.7 million Margaritas annually, and each Margaritaville location will be blending and pouring record amounts of their famous concoction as they celebrate 25 years of making the famed cocktail.

As part of this year’s celebration, Margaritaville restaurants are encouraging their Facebook fans to participate in a unique contest by submitting their favorite margarita recipes. The best recipes will be determined and selected by the restaurant executive staff and will be served on National Margarita Day at the winner’s location. To become a fan on Facebook: Fans can also help spread the word and countdown the days until National Margarita Day by going to the Margaritaville website or Facebook page and click on the “Share This” link to post the countdown code to your favorite social networking site.

Throughout the day, each location will also be offering distinctive Margarita specials, in addition to providing any patrons who are celebrating a 2/22 birthday with a $22.20 gift certificate to use during their visit. Individuals that are celebrating a 2/22/1922 birthday will receive complimentary food and beverage throughout the entire day!

Lastly, any guests whose name is Margarita or Rita will receive a complimentary bottle of Margaritaville Margarita Mix, simply by showing identification at the restaurant.
