Giddy-up! Bulls Restaurant and Bar’s One Year Anniversary

Want to know one way to make a hot summer night even hotter? A mechanical bull. That’s right, tomorrow night (Thursday, June 16th) is Bulls Restaurant and Bar’s one year anniversary and they’re having a party that will make you want to dust off your cowboy boots you wore for Halloween last year and get in on their all-night drink specials and $1.50 carne asada tacos. If you’re not ready to cowboy-up and actually ride the bull, you can still enjoy some drinks while listening to everyone’s favorite guilty (or not so guilty) pleasure, country music. So come out and, as they like to say, get “bucked at Bulls”! Anniversary celebration from 7pm-close.

Be sure to send in your popsicle flavors…
