Tip back some tequila, take in some tunes at Manny and Merle’s Third Thursday party (Aug.15)

You don’t have to don your honky-tonk duds to enjoy tonight’s Third Thursday party at Manny & Merle (122 W. Main Street.).  Just scoot out of the office and head on over for the 5:30 start.

Owner Tony Palombino invites you to share the evening’s Centinela Tequila experience (best we can tell, that agave juice is new to these parts) served up by that brand’s specialist, former Miss Mexico, Diana Jimenez. (Um, in case you’re wondering, she’s not unattractive.)

The tequila and some good grub from the kitchen are complimentary, as is the live music from A Lion Named Roar.

So get a head start on the weekend and head downtown for a good time at Manny & Merle.
