If you are over 21, I have 3 special words for you – Kelvin Slush Margarita!  Take a shot of tequila and put it into a fruity Kelvin Slush. You’ll thank me later.

There will also be a jalapeño eating contest, a real, live burro and other assorted Mexican festivities.  (You’re gonna need that Kelvin Slush after the jalapeño eating contest!)
