While Holy Frijoles has been up and running once again for about six months, it’s never too late to celebrate a neighborhood institution’s revival—and on National Margarita Day, no less.
After taking a year off to renovate following a devastating August 2016 electrical fire, the 22-year-old Hampden bar is hosting a grand re-opening celebration six months after it quietly opened its doors on The Avenue again. Today’s festivities, which began at 11 a.m. and run through 2 a.m., include $2.22 margaritas (hint: it’s in the date), $3 Mexican beer drafts, other food and drink specials rotating on the hour, what the bar claims is the “world’s first Tequila Wheel” and live music from DJ Pancakes and local bluegrass players The Busted Boots.
Not to mention for all you pinball wizards (Baltimore has more than a few), there’s free play in the back room all day.
If you haven’t made your way into the space since its re-opening, you should peep the newly expanded dining area and enjoy some delicious Tex-Mex made in the restaurant’s brand new kitchen.
Event runs until close, 908 W. 36th Street, Baltimore, 410-235-2326, www.holyfrijoles.net.
