As if it could get any better? The 8th Annual International Margarita Challenge's organizers Jim and Bonnie Williams are planning to have the best ever Margarita Challenge this year, and to make it an even better show, they are putting out the invite to other communities from Puerto Vallarta to Las Varas to come up with their own competitor.
"Yes, every year with the help of so many volunteers and great contestants, the Margarita Challenge continues to provide more excitement, entertainment and great margaritas," Jim Williams said.
Adding that the funds garnered from the event continue to grow and provide much needed support to the local food bank and Rincon de Guayabitos School Emiliano Zapata.
"Seeing how much help these funds bring to the community brings a tear to our eyes. Everyone is so grateful," Williams said.
This year's Challenge will once again be held at the "fabulous" Pina Colada Restaurant in Rincon de Guayabitos on Wednesday, February 2nd. The cost remains $200 pesos.
Last year's exciting winner Patty Hueso from Hinde and Jaime's Restaurant in La Penita de Jaltemba will be returning. Hueso went on to win the 2010 International Tequila Contest in Tequila with her presentation following her local victory.
