Patio weather is here, and that means margarita weather is here too. (They are the same, you see. They are nice.)

And since we sit at our desks all day thinking about where to get a margarita and have happy hour on a patio, we decided to post some of our ideas on the internet in case you do the same.

There are many, many options, so we’ve narrowed it down to 10 (13 if you count the multiple Illegal Pete locations) in an attempt to contain the tyranny of choice.

Have fun! Maybe consider sunscreen!
