Street festivals are the third most popular way to get to know neighbors, after scribbling "Hi there!" on their electric bills and playing Twister in a crowded elevator. Absorb some social lubrication with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one admission (a $20 value in advance, $25 day of the event) to Margarita Fest at Wall Street Plaza. The festival takes place on Saturday, August 6, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
In the glow of the late-afternoon sun, Margarita Fest revelers toss back a slew of refreshing margaritas and high-end tequilas. Fans of the slushy libation sip bottomless drinks of both traditional and unusual flavors, while fans of the seminal Russian novel The Master and Margarita begin to suspect there's been a misunderstanding. Attendees can also immerse their tongues in tequila samples while soaking up the sounds of live music. An additional $10 unlocks the High End Tequila Terrace, where guests enjoy a private tasting of top-shelf spirits and 100 proof snacks.
