MARGARITA DAY: Did you know that National Margarita Day is Thursday, Feb. 22? How are you planning on celebrating? We’re still undecided, but have heard of a couple good places to do it around town, including Besito Mexican (402 New York Ave., Huntington). Specials for the day include the Margarita de Tamarindo ($13) contains Milagro Reposado tequila, Chile ancho Reyes, tamarind-passion fruit puree, agave nectar and fresh-squeezed lime juice and is served with a Chili pequin salt rim. Satisfy the ensuing munchies with the Queso Fundido Con Langosta ($16), which is Maine lobster mixed with tinga, rajas, queso Chihuahua and cilantro. There will also be a two-for-one special on Besito margaritas only from 3-7 p.m. The restaurant is also giving away five $100 gift cards through a contest that can be entered at Besitomexican.com/Enter.
