Marina Holiday Spotlight: 6 Spots to Indulge in National Margarita Day February 22nd!

We’ve had Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, and a whole bunch of quirky little holidays come and go this month (Bubble Gum Day was February 2nd!)—but you may not know that one of the most festive holidays of the year is still on the way. Clear your after-work schedule on Thursday (February 22nd) because National Margarita Day is on the agenda! Thanks to a very enthusiastic Margarita connoisseur named Todd McCalla (originator of NMD)—we can officially raise our salt-rimmed glasses in celebration of this classic 2:1:1 cocktail. (For the non-bartenders of the world, 2:1:1 is the precise ratio of some of the best classic cocktails ever. In the margarita’s case—three parts tequila/one part triple sec/one part lime juice.)

Such an easy recipe, right? Yet, many of us know from experience that not every margarita is created equal. Luckily, the Marina del Rey area (as well as our neighboring towns) have some great restaurants with equally great bartenders—and yes, they know how to mix a darn good drink. So, get ready to order up the margarita of your dreams because the six fine establishments below will definitely deliver the goods.

Super Bowl LII is just FOUR days from now on February 4—and while the Rams aren’t in the big game (although they made it to the playoffs!)—the Patriots vs the Eagles is going to be an awesome matchup. Plus, songstress-goddess Pink is singing the National Anthem, Hamilton’s Leslie Odom, Jr. is belting out “America the Beautiful” and the Pepsi Super Bowl Half-time show will feature none other than Justin Timberlake (and special guests—like maybe his old N’Sync bandmates?). Any way you look at it, we’re in for a fun afternoon!

So, let’s start thinking about your Sunday viewing options. 1) You can cook up some yummy eats, invite your pals over and watch the game on your flat screen. B) You can go to a friend’s house, dive into their yummy eats and watch the game on their flat screen. C) You can head out to one of our area’s best sports-bar spots, enjoy food and drinks—and get into the game action with a zillion of your fellow football fans. If you go for “A” or “B” — we say, have a great time, be safe, and cheer your heart out! And if you choose “C”—well, we have some excellent destination suggestions to make sure when the game starts at 3:30 pm, you’re ready to root with the best of them.
