Miami Spa Months continue through Aug. 31; Miami Spice begins Aug. 1 and goes through Sept. 31. Those are reasons enough to party on South Beach and beyond, but here’s one more. National Tequila Day is July 24.
Here’s a look at some of my favorite South Florida bars and eateries that will celebrate the Day of the Agave:
American Social (Miami)
Never the place to pass on a party, American Social will be offering $4 Mi Campo Margaritas all day long on July 24.

With a four-tiered glass case filled with more than 350 mezcals and tequilas, Bakan is sure to have a little bit of tequila for everyone. Take advantage of their Tequila Day specials and sip on Casa Dragones Tequila or Salvación Mezcal straight or in a cocktail for $16.
