Best Margarita Madness

Milagro Tequila World Margarita Championship at the Tucson Culinary Festival

Staff Pick

If you've never been to the Tucson Culinary Festival because you're intimidated by all that wine-speak, you may want to check out the Margarita Championship. This will be the championship's fourth year, and this way-fun event gives you not only an opportunity to sample some of the top margaritas and food from some of the best restaurants in town; it also lets you vote on the people's choice winner. ("Celebrity" judges pick a winner, too.) This year, the event will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 1, on the patio at Maynards Market and Kitchen, downtown Tucson's newest hip dining spot. This is a fabulous kickoff to a fabulous local event. Local charities benefit, so there's no need to feel guilty about all that imbibing and noshing. Tickets to the Margarita Championship are $35.
