Celebrate the coming of summer with CityBeat’s grown-up version of a lemonade stand: our Margarita Madness party. Get ready for a lime-and-salt ’rita throw-down as participating bars and restaurants — including Bakersfield OTR, Rhinehaus, El Rancho Grande, Northside Tavern and more — compete to make the best margarita
And since we can’t let you booze on an empty stomach, restaurants like Django Western Taco, Bar Louie, Dewey’s Pizza and more will be serving up complimentary summery bites. And while ticket prices include food and booze, of course, there’s an added bonus of live music from local Indie/Soul/Rock band Jess Lamb.
5:30-9 p.m. $20. Newport on the Levee, Newport, tinyurl.com/margmadness.
