It’s tequila time. CityBeat’s sixth-annual Margarita Madness event returns to Newport on the Levee for an early salute to summer. A slew of local margarita makers — restaurants, bars and entertainment destinations — will be serving up their best tequila creations in a friendly margarita throw-down competition. Tickets include 10 drink tickets to sample 10 margaritas and one special token to vote for your favorite cocktail to win a coveted People’s Choice award. Local guest judges will also be on hand to offer their input to bestow awards like Most Creative Margarita. Dance to live music from the Elementree Livity Project while snacking on food samples and judging the city’s best guacamole in the annual Guac Off competition. Ticket proceeds benefit the Patty Brisben Foundation for women’s sexual health. In case of severe weather, the party moves indoors to the nearby Gallery Building. 5:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday. $35; $40 day-of (if available). Newport on the Levee, Newport, citybeat.com.
