Yes, it’s always national something day. What can we say? We’re suckers for this stuff. Especially when it involves drink specials and new taco bars with really exciting food. So here it is: Tonight, El Chucho is offering $4 shots of Tequila Real Blanco, a spirit newly available to the states and only available in the Washington market, and $5 margaritas. The restaurant is also taking 20 percent off of every offering on the tequila and mezcal menu. Bonard Molina, Tequila Real importer, will be on hand to talk agave spirits.

Not to be outdone, Mike Isabella’s Georgetown spot, Bandolero, has a special called “tequila for amigos” that begins at 4 PM. Buy one agave-based spirit neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail, and the second one—which you will presumably pass on to your amigo—is gratis. The special lasts all night.

J&G Steakhouse is charging just $5 for its ginger margarita tonight from 5:30 to 7 PM; the drink is regularly $12.
