Still trying to decide on your post-work plans this Friday afternoon? The answer is quite simple: get yourself to a Mexican restaurant and order a round of margaritas, because today is the most sacred of holidays. It’s National Margarita Day! Yep, apparently February 22nd is the official day of margarita appreciation, when this great nation comes together and tries to drink enough to pretend that we’re lounging on a beach in Acapulco, instead of hiding from the rain at a bar around the corner from our office. Sounds like the best holiday ever, if you ask me. Cheers!

Yeah, yeah, St. Patrick’s Day, whatever. More importantly, Happy National Corndog Day! For the past 20 years, one Saturday in March has been set aside to celebrate college basketball, beer, and batter-dipped meat on a stick. Even though I don’t give a crap about March Madness, I feel very strongly about any holiday that encourages copious corndog consumption. My brothers and I used to celebrate with a corndog eating contest, which I would always lose, but within a few hours it would become clear that the digestive system of the man who had eaten 13 corndogs was the real loser. Good times. Check out the official Corndog Day website for more details and celebration ideas!

We’ve got a few ideas about how to let it all hang out without ending up behind bars… Keep reading »
