You and Mr./Ms./Mrs. can start partying at 11:30 a.m. at both locations, but the real festivities start at Mary Brickell at 4 p.m., when a Mexican-style street festival goes off on the restaurants outdoor patio, complete with bar specials; stations featuring fresh-made guacamole, tacos and ice cream; a mariachi band and DJ. Theres a DJ at the SoBe Rosa too; both bashes go on until midnight, when it becomes Seis de Mayo.
Oh, and one more thing. Slurp down Rosas new cocktail concoction, the multi-culti margarita, made with one part tequila to two parts Grand Marnier. Olé-la-la. . .
