7 Places to Celebrate National Tequila Day (2019) in Las Vegas

They say tequila won’t fix all your problems, but we say it’s worth a shot. And this July 24, you’ll have ample opportunity to see what problems you can solve by having a drink or two of the good stuff as you celebrate National Tequila Day. That’s right, there’s an entire day dedicated to celebrating the magical Mexican potion that is tequila — just please do so responsibly, and remember to never, ever drink and drive. If you can handle that, then you’re in for a good time.

Tequila, which is produced only in certain parts of Mexico using the regional blue agave plant, has long been a favorite of the American Southwest — but now has an international following. So grab the salt, cut some lemons, and remember your Spanish toast: Arriba! (up, with a raise of the glass); Abajo! (below to the table); Al centro! (in the center, toast with friends); and A dentro! (inside, as in down the gullet.) Here we go.

Pinches Tacos

With 2 locations, 1 in Summerlin and 1 at the container park, Pinches Tacos has been a crowd favorite amongst many of my friends. Catch them during their happy hour for nearly-free margaritas, tacos and even an occasional free shot of Tequila.
