National Margarita Day at Z'Tejas
Every day around me is National Margarita Day, but there is actually such a celebration. Needless to say, it's a good reason to raise a salted glass or two.
The folks at Z’Tejas, 15900 La Cantera Parkway, will be celebrating Feb. 22 with several specials. Your first Little Larry Margarita is priced at $2.22. A tequila-marinated chicken pasta entrée special will also be offered. And you can take the taste home with you in a bottle of Z’Tejas Margarita Mix.
