I've read that the owner of Pico's Mex Mex claims to have invented the margarita. Is there any truth to this claim or just bragging?


Kick off Cinco de Mayo in the Peacock Room with live entertainment by La Sien and Bang Bangz (and Flcon Fcker) is only $10 at the door, the livenation website's listing was incorrect. We do have some free tickets so msg me if interested


@mishkin  I've never heard that.  In fact, their drink menu says "We did not invent the margarita--we perfected it!"  They were the first to offer "top shelf" margaritas.  And won a spot in the Guinness book for creating the world's largest margarita.  In a tank truck....

And their food is excellent.
