In Texas, practically any occasion calls for a margarita. And because Dallas is the birth place of the frozen margarita, there are many more reasons than you need to get in the spirit (preferably tequila, please and thanks). In addition to the many specials around town, we thought you might need some recommendations on where to find a solid marg.
