Our house made Infused Tequilas allow us to help craft a drink as unique as you. A drink you will likely not be able to get anywhere else in the world.
Nothing that would scare a Texan. But we realize some of you are transplants.
1) We will do our best to look up the weather and post on our facebook event page. We highly recommend you keep an eye on the weather yourself.
2) We are a 10,000 sqft restaurant and bar. 8,000 of that is indoors. So plenty of indoor party space if it is indeed raining.
3) Some of you don’t like driving in the rain (or while intoxicated) good on ya. See section above about parking. Maybe take that UBER. Seriously it’s a cheap hassle-free way to get in and out.
BEST party on a Thursday and for National Margarita Day.

Y’all have turned this into a huge event so that means a lot of people and a lot of cars. Here are a few parking options…
1) Take an UBER or a Cab- Don’t have to drive. Don’t have to park. Don’t have to look for a parking space or pay for one. Don’t have to remember where you parked. And maybe most importantly you can have more margaritas if you aren’t driving.
2) CARPOOL (Designated Driver)- Only one of you has to drive. And park. If you end up paying for parking you are splitting it multiply ways. All of you but the driver can have more margaritas if you choose.
3) RAIL or public transport- We are located only one block from the PRESTON station on main street and prairie. We are at Travis and Prairie. All those above reasons apply. The rail is only $1.25.
4) FREE PARKING- There is plenty of free street parking after 6 pm. Prior to that parking is $2/hr. Please observe all city posted parking restrictions. We don’t need anyone parking on sidewalks.
5) PRIVATE PARKING LOTS- There are numerous privately owned parking lots all over downtown. Each of them have their own rates and signs. Please follow their instructions. We are in no way affiliated with these lots.
6) NO Crawfish this year. Not in season

$5 Fresh Juice House Margaritas ALLDAY!
