Thanks to Toby Keith October 21st, 2011 will be designated National Mezcal Day!Toby says "Everybody's got a tequila, their favorite whiskey, even Vodka". Let's do something no one's got". "Let's go straight mezcal with the worm in the bottom and sell em' in my bars." So in honor of the holiday, Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill restaurants will be offering up the Wild Shot mezcal drink specials, including the signature Blue Mezcalita margarita.

Fans can participate in contests on the Wild Shot Facebook and Twitter accounts to receive autographed copies of Toby’s upcoming album, Clancy’s Tavern, being released October 24th.

Here's a little song to help you get ready for National Mezcal Day from Youtube:

Wait a minute, worm in the bottom of the drink! Wouldn't that be called a Mexcal instead?
