How it works: Best Damn Margarita

  • Each establishment competing in the margarita competition from 2pm-6pm will have a 6ft table decorated as they wish promoting their restaurant, bar or casino.
  • On each table there will be a ballot box for them to accept a wooden chip from attendees that think they have the "Best Damn Margarita"
  • At 6pm the ballot boxes are removed from each table.
  • At 6pm the wooden chip voting stops and all wooden chips are tallied up.
  • At 7pm in the Lucha libre ring the top three winners will be announced.
  • The winning team will receive $500 and a Lucha Libre style wrestling belt.

How it works: Most popular

  • This year each margarita sample will costs one (1) drink coupon.
  • Each competing establishment will have a 2nd box located on their table directly behind the ballot box
  • An attendee will walk up to the table they want to sample then hand the bartender one (1) drink coupon for one (1) margarita sample.
  • The bartender will place the drink coupon into the dedicated container behind the ballot box on the table.
  • At 6pm the ballot box and drink coupon container will be removed from each table.
