One tequila, two tequila...

Vida is taking the July 24 National Tequila Day (really?) even farther with a seven-day event: The Inaugural Vida Tequila Week.

Tickets will be given away each day the week of July 11 on Facebook and Twitter to the Tequila Week Kickoff Party July 18. July 20, there'll be an 1800 dinner with courses to complement that brand designed by chef Chris Swinyard (including tequila mustard chicken satay, tomato and watermelon salad, black mole braised chicken breast with crispy skin, and more. $40; 704-971-8432. Through the week, there'll be a tequila flight showcased each day, and contests with prizes will be done through the restaurant's social media. July 24 brings $5 Vida and frozen margaritas all day.
