El Arroyo serving free margaritas to teachers on final day of school (May 30)

That frozen concoction that helps teachers hang on will soon be flowing freely.

If you think kids can’t wait for the last day of school, just imagine how teachers feel. El Arroyo can imagine it. And the Austin-owned Tex-Mex restaurant on West Fifth Street is here for the teacher.

On the last day of school (May 30), the restaurant with the famous sign and its never-ending stream of pithy comments is teaming with 512 Tequila to serve free margaritas to teachers. While there are no specific terms on the special, management says they will be following the laws of safe and legal alcohol service. One also assumes the margaritas won’t stop flowing until after the final bell actually rings. But, who knows?

So, get ready for some sick burns about bad students and some rideshare surge pricing. You’ve earned it, teachers.
