Tequila Anyone?

There seems to be a rash of Taco Tuesdays around this island. We don’t really have tacos, but we DO have plenty of tequila. Starting this and every Tuesday, South Shore Tiki Lounge will host “Tequila Tuesdays”. $3 Sauza shots, $4 Sauza Margaritas, and $5 Patron shots. DJ LX will take over the turntables for the best Tuesday night dance party on the island. No cover. Starts 10pm.
