This year, 34 popular bars and restaurants countywide entered the competition, creating signature margaritas and vying to be named San Diego’s Best (see the full list of margaritas here).

For a chance to win $1,500 (in the form of $50 gift certificates from all 34 participating venues) readers were encouraged to visit the participating venues during Margarita Month (May 1-31), order their margaritas, and post pics of the drinks to Instagram, hashtagging the bar and #margaritamonth. To see who was being social, head over to Instagram. Over on Facebook, there also was a giveaway of $50 per day, every day in May, at

Plus, one margarita lover who samples margaritas and posts photos of them to Instagram using #margaritamonth and the venues’ hashtags will win $1,700 in the form of a $50 gift certificate from each of the 34 participating venues. The more hashtags you post, the better your chances of winning.
