Who doesn't love celebrating Cinco de Mayo, especially with tacos and tequila? Luckily, you don't have to wait until May to indulge yourself with a bunch of tacos and tequila.

You can have both of those things at the 3rd annual Taco and Tequila Crawl is happening this Saturday (April 30th) in Portland, where you can enjoy tacos and exclusive margaritas, tequila, and beer specials.

According to Eventbrite, from 3 pm to 8 pm on Saturday you can go around Portland and eat and drink the night away. The crawl will be taking place in Fore Street area bars and restaurants.

You can choose between two types of tickets, general admission or VIP. The main difference is that if you choose to be a VIP on the crawl, you will get a signature taco shirt, 1 extra taco, and be able to start the night one hour early (2 pm instead of 3 pm). General admission is $20, where VIP tickets are around $35 (depending on shirt size).

The crawl will take you to various locations however, you will start and register at Pat's Pizza where you will get a taco pizza slice and a discount on tequila and coronas.

Other participants include: Gritty's, Fore Play Sports (which will have a DJ from 4 pm-8 pm), Drink Exchange, Three Dollar Dewey's, BonFire, Porthole, Citrus (this will be the "Party Stop" and have a live DJ from 5 pm to 8:30 pm), and an after-party from 7 pm to 9 pm with 2 DJs at Oasis.

Note, that on the crawl, you do not need to make a stop at every location. You can pick and choose which spots you want to stop at.

What's even more fun than dancing, eating tacos, and having margaritas is that you get to actually vote for the best. During the crawl, you will vote for the best-tasting taco and the best margarita.

Grab your friends or loved ones for a night out where you can eat all the tacos and drink all the tequila you want. You can purchase tickets and find out more information here.
