Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar in West Palm Beach is Turning Five: Free Tequila and Vanilla Ice's Toys for Tots Block Party

Rocco Mangel -- of Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar and tequila dancing fame -- rarely misses an opportunity to party. So it's no huge surprise that he plans to go balls to the wall for the five year anniversary of his first eponymous restaurant, which opened in West Palm Beach in 2007.

On Saturday, his restaurant will join forces with the seventh annual Vanilla Ice Toys for Tots charity event for a massive party on the 200 block of Clematis Street. The crew will throw down with multiple DJs, live mariachi music, and other goodies. As has become tradition at any noteworthy Rocco's soiree, Mangel will pour free Patron shots whenever he hops up on the bar for his raucous "tequila dance."

In the same vicinity, the Vanilla Ice Toys for Tots block party will feature a free performance by the Ice man himself. Score good karma points and do something nice for the kiddies by bringing a new, unwrapped toy to the event. Your donation will go to the annual Toys for Tots campaign.

The festivities are 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday.
