Today is National Margarita Day and we’ve rounded up 8 places in Portland where you can celebrate and sip, while enjoying some fun activities. Bowling, pinball, bingo, trainspotting, anyone? Read on!

Putt-Putt
The 10th Hole Margarita, at the Birdie Time Pub and Mini Golf, made with their house mix, Centarrio Tequila and Grand Mariner, is a smack of sweet taste guaranteed to help you chip your way through their 80 simulated golf courses from around the world. Or take on the 9 hole mini-golf course or any other putting games they have.

Bowling
Grand Central Bowl & Arcadeā€™s, Blood Orange Margarita, with Sauza Hacienda Tequila, purĆ©ed blood orange, agave nectar, and muddled fruit is sweet and sour deliciousness for those who want to relax so they can improve their angle of entry ā€”before they even begin to approach their lane so their balls stay out of the gutter. (Six pack, anyone?!)

Bingo
The Pharmacy’s Ā Shark Bite Spicy Margarita Tequila, with ginger liqueur, fresh lime juice and muddled jalapeƱos, is the sure thing to get you in the mood for Drag Bingo.

Welcome to the Board
Looking for a cool dive bar, local watering hole? Check. Board games? Check. Heavy pours? Check check check! Mad Hanna has all of that, and a Mango Habanero Margarita to complement the fun. Caution, this margarita, made with mango habanero infused tequila, and dressed up with freshly squeezed house margarita mix is Hot AF! Which you might want to drink after you’ve hit the Karaoke stage!

Dance the Hula
The signature Margarita at the the tiki-themedĀ R&R Bar is theĀ Venti Uno, made with Altos Plata Tequila, Combier dā€™Orange, agave & a rim of Tajin & sea salt, which basically means what you thought it meant – every day is Margarita day here. So come for Pua Hana (Happy Hour), sit down at a table, and we dare you to keep your hips from doing hula rotations at your table while you listen to local music.

Slingshot Lounge
No TVā€™s, no lottery, no tweekers here. But theĀ Slingshot Lounge does have the best Prickly Pear Margarita Slushy in town. They also have pool tables, pinball machines, and an old fashioned photo booth, which will churn out a 4-strip photo youā€™ll probably wish youā€™d taken before youā€™d had that extra margarita!

Horror Show
Creepyā€™s has a Don Julio Tequila Slushie Margarita, but if you want to really get into the mood, upgrade that baby for just $2 more and make it a Cadillac Margarita, complete with a Grand Marnier USA Float. But where they really hit their stride is with their Mexican Firing Squad – a glorious concoction of el Jimador Blanco, house-made Grenadine, Lime, and Angostura bitters. Order one (or all three!) and settle in to watch some of, what they say are, ā€œfilms youā€™ve never seen.ā€

Trainspotting
Well, sort of. Verde Cocina (Hillsdale) resides in a former train station and has a sweet-spot upstairs to take in one of their exquisite margaritas. And make no mistake, some say that Verde Cocina has the best margaritas in Portland (we’re among those). Try their Jackfruit Margarita, made with Altos Tequila, fresh squeezed lime, muddled jackfruit and organic agave, and served with a spicy salt rim. Also on the menu (depending on season and location) Watermelon Basil Margaritas,Ā ā€œboat floatā€ Cadillac Margaritas, the Triple Citrus Margarita Puros, and Fresh Cucumber & JalapeƱo Margaritas.
