Sometimes in life, you come across a bag of 1000 fortune cookies, and realize that you're only hungry enough for five. So, I'm sharing the rest with you. Crack open this cookie and let's see what your future holds. "Make more time in your life for events and less time for worries." Well, you heard the cookie! Let's get you out of the house.
Grab a friend to hold onto, quite literally, as you attend the Margarita Festival. Everyone's favorite tequila-based drink is getting a day of celebration on Saturday, Nov. 16 at Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino (20 Buffalo Thunder Trail) from noon to 4pm. Tickets start at $30, which will gain you entry to what I like to call "Margarita Heaven." With the inventiveness of bartenders, there will be no shortage of bizarre tequila concoctions for you to sip on, or if you're feeling bold and like publicly destroying your reputation, you can just down them in one go and move onto the next booth (Weekly Alibi does not condone excessive and unsafe drinking, even if it leads to funny stories). For more information on the event, visit buffalothunder.com.
