Step across the street from Coolidge park and up onto the Poblano’s porch for a margarita. This weekend, Poblano’s is bringing back a Cinco de Mayo tradition; dollar tacos and pineapples filled with margarita for $15. $4 refills on these pineapple margaritas bring people back to Poblano’s every year when the fifth rolls around. Poblano’s regular happy hour runs Tuesday through Friday from 4-7 P.M., when you can score $2 off house margaritas and also $1 off beer (except PBR). Poblano’s is a great pick for us on a Friday; the porch is awesome and they do a great margarita.
