Guard Your Nipples

No clue why, but this did happen.


Go Big

Bigger. Bigger! There you go.


Cheers to That

Whatever your poison, don’t go empty handed. Ever. All day.


Bring Your Mom

Oscar and Martha reign over the annual standard-setting blowout at Las Margaritas.


Get Into It

Stereotypes are gauche, but also de rigueur this one time. 


Anything Goes

Better to paint yourself green than to turn that way from tequila.


Gun Show

Baring arms is a little known Mexican tradition… or maybe that’s just an Atlanta thing.


Friends & Family

Bring someone or several someones. Everyone is welcome.


Queens on Parade

Ready those singles. Popular performers are in the mix.
