National Tequila Day Brings Specials to Las Vegas on Saturday, Severe Hangovers on Sunday

Saturday, July 24 is National Tequila Day.

Yes…you heard me correctly.  National. Tequila. Day.

Woe is me that a regretful night of over-indulgence some 13 years ago still has me gag at the mere whiff of tequila, but as the top-selling liquor in the U.S. by a mile, the blue agave-based party juice hasn’t wronged the masses as it has done me.  I have a great deal of jealousy toward those that still retain the ability to power down the poison, but on this day, I hoist my frosty beer unto you and say, “Slam one down for me!”

Of course…do all slamming of alcoholic beverages with the utmost responsibility.

Here is just a small smathering of the specials abound in Las Vegas celebrating this joyous day.  I hope these places stocked up on their mops…

* - Ok…this is no shit…but Dos Caminos at the Palazzo had their staff go through training by the Consejo Regulador del Tequila and Tequila Cazadores to become certified in tequila knowledge and receive the Award T.  I know…this sounds like something we’d come up with in college to justify getting shitty on a weekday, but this is legit.  On Saturday, Dos Caminos will show off their new-found knowledge and offer a special tasting menu ($42) with tequila pairing ($39).  The tasting menu includes a Corzo Blanco Tequila Cured Salmon Ceviche, Aged New York Strip Steak with Alaskan King Crab Enchilada and Helado Frito for dessert.

* – The Tequila Bar and Grill at Bally’s will be featuring $1 Margaritas, $2 Select Beers and $2 Shots of Silver Tequila along with $1 tacos.

* – Margaritaville at the Flamingo will have select tequila shots for $5 and select tequila cocktails for $7.

* – Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace will be featuring a Cactus Pear Margarita and White Peach Margarita for $13 each.

* – The newest boutique tequila to make a splash in Las Vegas, Ambhar Tequila will be on special in several resorts.  All of the Luxor’s casino bars will have Ambhar Platinum shots and cocktails for $9 and Ambhar  Reposado for $11.

* – Hussong’s Cantina at Mandalay Bay will have buy one, get one Ambhar shots from 4-7pm.  Buying a shot gets you a crack at a piñata, if you open it, you win a bottle of Ambhar Platinum.

* – The newly renovated Tropicana will have $5 Ambhar shots at all casino bars, including the pool.

Remember, Tasting Las Vegas always encourages you to drink responsibly as well as throw up responsibly.  If you do choose to imbibe on this national holiday, by all means, send me some incriminating pictures so we can all point and laugh.
