Pass the Salt: The Hautest Vegas Venues to Celebrate National Tequila Day

It should be no surprise that July 24 is National Tequila Day. After all, in modern times, where random holidays such as this seem to plant themselves on the calendar, drinking has become the ultimate American pastime right next to baseball.

If you’re in Vegas for the “holiday,” make sure to meet up with best friends Don and Jose at some of the establishments below. All are offering great deals. Now, who’s got the salt?

Dos Caminos inside Palazzo is taking the celebration very seriously, for its staff has been trained and certified in tequila knowledge. The venue is offering a specialty menu, which features dishes that can be paired with the perfect tequila through Saturday. Offerings on the menu include Corzo Blanco Tequila Cured Salmon Ceviche, Aged New York Strip Steak, and Helado Frito.

For those with a competitive streak, head over to the Hard Rock Hotel, where there will be Casa Noble tequila specials and a raffle grand prize giveaway. The grand prize package includes a two-night stay and dinner for two at the Hard Rock. In order to participate, guests must pick up a stamp card and fill it up with four stamps. One shot or Casa Noble cocktail at a list of participating venues is worth one stamp. And if you don’t win? At least you’ll be too intoxicated to care.

Unsuccessful betters, fear not: Tequila Bar and Grill inside Bally’s is extending an amazing deal with $1 margaritas, $2 beers, and $2 tequila shots. Complementing the above drink specials, Tequila Bar will also offer visitors $1 tacos. The only thing not to love about this wallet-friendly offer is the possibility of an epic hangover.

If margaritas are your tequila beverage of choice, Mesa Grill in Caesars Palace is highlighting their delicious Cactus Pear Margarita and White Peach Margarita. Go figure, Margaritaville at the Flamingo is also extending some deals, including a Modern Margarita, Paloma, and Herradura Mojito, all of which are $7 each.

Finally, if you’re willing to go all-out, Hussong’s Cantina at Mandalay Bay is providing all the ingredients to a very Mexican Saturday, including pinatas and prizes. We envision it to be comparable to a birthday party for adults.
