For an El Grito hangover, you are going to want to get menudo. Used in Mexico as a post-party remedy, the spicy soup has tons of garnishes and tripe (stomach lining of a cow), but hey, it supposedly works.

Casa Don Juan, 1204 S. Main St., Las Vegas, NV, 89104

Las Delicias De Las Vegas, 2129 S. Industrial Road, Las Vegas, NV 89102

For the reason you got the hangover …

El Grito Tequila Special at The Other Room, The Forum Shops – From September 10−30, you can choose your own four-tequila flight for $30.

Diablo’s Cantina at Monte Carlo − During the Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin fight, the bar will have a viewing section with its own fiery margaritas.

La Comida − Expect to find unique margaritas served in trendy mason jars (everything from Prickly Pear to Spicy Cucumber). It also carries one of the most expensive margaritas ($235) called the El Millionario Tequila Flight, good for those able to indulge.

Chayo at The LINQ − Get a traditional margarita here and ride a mechanical bull, all in the spirit of El Grito.
