Plenty of fake holidays concocted by marketers come and go without much fanfare. February 20, for instance, is supposedly “celebrated” as National Cherry Pie Day and National Love Your Pet Day. But something tells us that people who ate cherry pie on Thursday weren’t doing so because of some random made-up holiday. And presumably, pet owners loved their pets just as much on days other than Love Your Pet Day.

At least National Margarita Day, celebrated February 22, comes with great deals on margaritas, bringing some excitement and savings to what would otherwise probably be another uneventful winter weekend. Individual bars and restaurants in cities such as Chicago, Dallas, and Phoenix are hosting specials like two-for-one margaritas and all-you-can-eat tacos in honor of National Margarita Day, so look for deal listings in your neck of the woods.

Three national restaurant chains have also posted Margarita Day specials, and in two of the cases, you don’t have to wait until National Margarita Day on Sunday to take advantage.

On the Border: 12 oz. margaritas that normally run $4.50 apiece are on the menu for $2 all day on Saturday and Sunday this weekend at the Mexican restaurant chain.

Cheeseburger in Paradise: All day on Sunday, February 22, classic margaritas are priced at $2.22 each at the restaurant chain named for a Jimmy Buffett song other than “Margaritaville.”

Tony Roma’s: Through Saturday, February 21, this rib-and-steak specialty chain is selling classic Romaritas (house margaritas) for $4, before dropping the price down to $2.22 to celebrate National Margarita Day on Sunday.
