The Snowbird's are flying over tomorrow at 6pm, stop by before and fuel up with some tasty Mexican food (and margaritas of course 😉). There are tons of really great spots to watch the show nearby!

Or be a hero and leave your amigos to guard your spot and come pick up some take out tacos and ice tea from our convenient taco window.

¡Hasta mañana!
