You better get ready. This Sunday is, like, the second biggest drinking holiday in the world--well, we don't actually know if that's true, but it should be.

The time has come to release that inner Mexican and have a good time. We have the list of ten places to celebrate in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, after the jump.

Cinco on Second

Tarpon Bend and T-Mex Cantina are teaming up to host an epic fiesta. From 2 to 5 pm, the bars will host a live salsa band. A DJ comes on from 6 to 10pm. In addition to food and drink specials, the rowdy neighbors will feature shot girls, donkey rides, games and giveaways, and a taco eating contest. Check the facebook page here.

Kapow! Noodle Bar

Asian and Mexican might sound like an odd combination, but tequila crosses many bridges. The Mizner Park restaurant and bar is offering $5 Partida Margaritas all day long. Click here for more info.

Casa Maya Grill

The Deerfield Beach spot is closing down normal operations to host a massive Mexican party with live music in the parking lot. The regular menu will be cut down to eight menu items, a roast pig being one. Visit the website here.

Tequila Sunrise

Looking for a Mexican style street party--okay, block party? Tequila Sunrise has got you covered. From 11:30 am to 11:45 pm, the restaurant is hosting a mariachi band and giving away freebies. And obviously serving tequila. Check the website here.

Taco Beach Shack

If you're looking to impress a Corona girl--or two--this Hollywood beach-side bar is hosting a taco eating contest with awards given out to the biggest fastest eaters. For those who are too scared: the restaurant is featuring a $14.95 barbecue platter, $5 margaritas, and $3.50 Coronas. Visit the website here.
