National Margarita Day is observed every year on Feb. 22.

But Feb. 22 does not always fall on a margarita-appropriate day like Friday. When it does, that’s cause for a major fiesta.

This is our lucky year, and on Friday, several local restaurants will be mixing up margarita specials to celebrate National Margarita Day.

Here are some of them. Did I miss a good one? E-mail me at dneil@wichitaeagle.com.
