Never ones to let a good "drinking" holiday go by unobserved, Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar will commemorate Mexican Independence Day on Friday at its three South Florida locations; Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Each party will have its own draw - live music by Suenalo in Fort Lauderdale, cover band The Edge in Boca and DJs at WPB.
Festivities kick off at 4 p.m. and can be counted to continue well into the night. Expect drink specials (and maybe some of those infamous free tequila pourings for which Rocco Mangel has become known), followed by the possibly poor decision-making skills that typically accompany such a sequence of events.
