I love my birthday, of course, but do you know whose special day I love the most? Any restaurant that celebrates its birthday by giving me a present.

This year, Chili’s is on my list of faves as they celebrate their 44th birthday with discounted margaritas. All day on March 13, you can enjoy a hand-shaken Presidente Margarita for just $3.13 (3/13 … $3.13, get it?).


The deal is only valid at participating locations and the prices vary in Hawaii and Alaska. Obviously, you must also be 21 to participate in this party.

The Presidente Margaritas are hand-shaken 25 times on the way to the table and include top-shelf liquors Sauza Conmemorativo tequila, Patrón Citrónge orange liqueur and Presidente brandy. Chili’s shared this video showing how they make them (so technically, you could celebrate on your own at home):

If you’re looking for more flavor instead, Chili’s $5 margarita of the month is the Lucky Jameson, which is made with Jameson Irish whiskey, Lunazul blanco tequila, triple sec and fresh sour. This deal is good until March 31.


If you make it to Chili’s for the birthday deal, there’s a chance you get another gift if you post a photo to social media with #ChilisBirthday and tag @chilis. They will be picking some fans to win a gift card worth, you guessed it, $313!

Will you be heading to Chili’s on March 13 to get your $3.13 margarita?
