Dallas' 20 Best Margaritas To Compete at Next Weekend's Margarita Meltdown in Bishop Arts.
There are few things in this world that quite compare to the feeling you get after sipping your first margarita.
That instant rush of sweetness, countered with that zing of sour offered by a freshly squeezed lime, all surrounded by a ring of salt? It's a mind-blowing and an insanely flavorful drink — let alone the fact that it's literally an intoxicating one — and, each time, without fail, it makes you long for a little alone time on a lounge chair lined up along some secluded beach.
Funny, then, that both the the O.G. and frozen incarnations of the drink were invented right here in this landlocked city of ours.
Well, at least we get to reap the benefits of those local origins. On Sunday, May 26, from 5 to 10 p.m., the Bishop Arts Disgtrict will host he third annual Margarita Meltdown Festival,, which will find more than 20 area restaurants and bars — among them La Duni, Mesa, Whiskey Cake, Sunset Lounge and Iron Cactus — offering up their own takes on the classic concoction and competing for the title of Dallas' best margarita.
And, for $20, you'll get to try as many samples of these drinks, all while dining on some delicious traditional Latin dishes and live entertainment. Plus, this event goes down on Memorial Day Weekend, so that Sunday date's not much of a concern; you wonâ€™t have to worry about slugging into work with an epic margarita hangover on Monday, after all. Also, to top all this off, a portion of the eventâ€™s proceeds will benefit La Voz del Anciano, a nonprofit organization that helps improve the quality of life of elderly Latinos in Dallas. Pretty sweet deal, yeah? Yeah.
