Since September 1978, Jose O'Shea's has been perched over Sixth Avenue (technically at 385 Union Boulevard), luring road warriors up for big margaritas, big plates of americanized Mexican fare, homemade sauces and salsa created daily, and that free taco bar during happy hour -- seven days a week.
To mark Jose O'Shea's thirtieth anniversary, the Hotchkiss family will host special events through September 21, including mariachi bands, daily drawings for giveaways and a five-course tequila dinner on September 18. For details, go to www.joseosheas.com.
