Pass the salt, please.

Little Rock's inaugural Margarita Festival is set for Thursday, May 4, from 6-9 p.m. in the River Market. Put on by the Arkansas Times, this fest will pit 15 local restaurants against each other for the title of best marg.

The event includes food from Loca Luna and Taco Mama, music, entertainment and a photo booth. There's also an unofficial after party at Ernie Biggs afterwards, so you might want to pace yourself.

But enough of the small talk. There are the restaurants whose bartenders will provide the margaritas you'll be sipping/throwing back.
