Ritapalooza at El Camino Cantina Fitzroy
You'll find Skittle, marshmallow and fairy bread margs — and 'rita tasting paddles — at this five-week festival.
October 07, 2022
El Camino Cantina is known for its colourful interiors, cheap Tuesday tacos and giant margaritas, including at its venue in Fitzroy. Those oversized drinks are a huge drawcard, and they're on offer every day — but every now and then, the lively Tex Mex chain throws a huge Ritapalooza festival.
Melburnians, it's that time again. From Monday, October 24–Sunday, November 27, El Camino's Fitzroy outpost is celebrating those easy-to-down slushie margs with a five-week-long festival dedicated to the frozen cocktail. Head by from to sip 24 limited-edition flavours — there'll be varieties like Skittle, Hubba Bubba and marshmallow available.
Also on the menu: classics like mango, strawberry and passionfruit — and other more creative varieties like Wizz Fizz, Jelly Belly, Lifesaver, fairy floss, salted caramel, popcorn, grape Nerd and fairy bread as well. Even better: you can nab them as part of four-flavour and metre-long 12-flavour tasting paddles.
El Camino's ten-cent Wing Wednesday tradition will be on offer throughout Ritapalooza as well, plus $2 tacos on Tuesdays.
Really love your 'ritas? Opt for the Palooza party package for $99 per person, which covers a three-course menu — including a range of limited-edition fajita flavours — and a two-hour beverage package.
