Best End-of-the-World Parties in Dallas-Fort Worth

Toast the Grim Reaper at Favorite DFW Watering Holes


According to the ancient Mayan calendar, December 21, 2012 is supposed to be the end of the world (as we know it). Why not risk going out with a bang at your favorite restaurant or watering hole with a drink in hand!?

Consume a Cosmo. Guzzle a Guinness. Partake in a Pina Colada. Sip a Single Malt Scotch. Whatever you choose, raise a toast to the Grim Reaper and I hope to see you on Saturday the 22nd.

1. Mariano's DRINKO DE MAYA

Celebrate the end of the world with one final Mariano’s frozen margarita. Don’t let the world go dark without one last margarita. Mariano Martinez, inventor of the world’s first frozen margarita, wants to serve the world’s last frozen margarita. Enjoy the Drinko de Maya, a take on Mariano’s original Texas Frozen margarita spiked with Grand Marnier and garnished with a pineapple Mayan crown, cherry and a gummy worm at the bottom for good luck, and say “¡Adios!” to the world as we know it. The Drinko de Maya will be available for $11 or two for $20.12 at all La Hacienda Ranch locations, Mariano’s Mexican Cuisine and Mariano’s Hacienda Thursday, December 20 – Sunday, December 23 (if we make it that far). For location information and hours, please visit www.marianosrestaurants.com.
