Every year my husband and I celebrate Mexican Independence Day with a large party. Being American, we change their day of freedom to whatever happens to work best for us, typically a Saturday night. So “Cinquo de Mayo” cheekily becomes “Secondo de Mayo” or “Octavo de Mayo” or whenever (and however we feel like translating it.) We think this is cool but it will probably be one of those dorky things that haunt our children far into their adult lives.
So when the stress of planning a party and knowing you’ll someday destroy your children’s social development starts becoming less fun than what you envisioned, it’s time to call… Margarita Man!
Margarita Man, aka Mike Beetem, saved my party and made me so happy I forgot about the other stuff that was bothering me. I simply told him when and where and he delivered a beautiful machine – all gussied up in a grass skirt and silk flowers – the afternoon of my party. He supplied the delicious mix, I supplied the tequila and the triple sec. After giving us a quick tutorial (1. Pour it in, 2. Flip the switch) he told us he’d pick up the machine the next day (which he did, precisely when he said he would).
And the party? WOW. Nothing says “Viva la Independence!” like one too many Margarita Man margaritas!
Robin’s note: Matt told me to expect roughly 1/2 of our attendees to drink margaritas. Good thing we didn’t listen to him because everyone except the pregnant chick tossed them back and the other beverages gathered dust on a nearby table.
What you may not know but should:
1. Margarita Man supplies other drinks, such as Mai Tais, Pain Killers, Bellinis, etc.
2. If you’re planning a big party or just need assistance, Matt is happy to provide personnel to help man the machines.
3. They also provide kids’ flavors.
