Senor Margaritas treats residents to chilled drinks

It’s five o’clock somewhere, right? That’s what the residents at the Council Bluffs Primrose thought on a hot July afternoon. The first annual Party on the Patio was scheduled to take place where else, but out on the patio. However, the temperature was quickly reaching 95 degrees so the party was moved up to our Primrose Pub. The residents cooled off with fun and fruity drinks provided by Senor Margaritas. Mr. Margarita provided the residents and their friends with virgin pina coladas and strawberry margaritas in festive glasses with sugar lined rims decorated with fresh pineapple and strawberries. One resident commented that she was glad there was no alcohol in the frozen beverages because she had already drank four glasses!

Residents and friends donned their Hawaiian shirts and were each given a lei upon enterting the party. They listened to classic hits by none other than Jimmy Buffet. They also snacked on chips, homemade guacamole and Mexican tortilla rollups made by the Chefs of the Primrose Kitchen.

The residents and staff had a great time and were relieved when the party was moved indoors. The residents are hopeful to have a Party on the Patio sometime this fall when the temperature cools down a bit. The residents also look forward to the big event that is scheduled each month. Once a month the life enrichment coordinator and marketing manger get together to plan a festive event perfect for each season. These events can range from the party on the patio to a Friday evening night club to state fair day.
