Southwest Café in Ridgefield Turns 25

Amy Kundrat

Southwest Café in Ridgefield will be celebrating their 25th anniversary this month. They kick off the festivities as host their 6th annual Southwest Cafe Margarita 5k on Aug 4, 2012. (Trust me, it's a blast. I've run it in the past and the relatively flat course and festive evening crowd makes it a fun race).

In addition to the race, the restaurant invites all for an evening of music and their signature southwest fare. Inspired by the anniversary, Southwest is doing 25 nights of giveaways through August 25. For every 25th person to walk in the door, you can expect prizes such as a free margarita to free lunch for the month of August.

And a fixed price $25 new mexican entree, chocolate decadent cake and classic margarita for aug & sept Monday through Thursday evenings. For more information about these events and to register, visit
