National Tequila Day in L.A.

National Tequila Day is coming up, and, north of the border though it may be, L.A. knows how to honor the occasion. Celebrate with shots, salt, and lime, or go big with a creative tequila cocktail (like the ones in the gallery below!). Don't eat the worm. Unless you really, really want to.
