Cabo Wabo has come a long way in 29 years since its MTV advertised premiere birthed a brand new Spring Break destination. Originally opened in 1990 by Sammy Hagar and his then Van Halen bandmates - who can forget the eponymous song from their OU812 album? - Cabo Wabo has since become a mandatory stop for just about everyone who visits Cabo San Lucas, even cruise ship passengers who only come ashore for a few hours. It's a complete lifestyle experience, albeit one which continues to revolve around live music. A house band jams good-time rock n' roll seven nights a week, with occasional cameos from visiting country and rock stars. But there are other reasons beyond boogying down to stop by, from "waboritas" (the house version of the margarita) to comfort food specialty dishes and souvenir t-shirts. The best time to visit is during October when "The Red Rocker" himself hosts his annual birthday bashes with plenty of big-name guests.
- Christmas Shopping: "If you work up a thirst shopping try a "waborita", the house margarita made with Cabo Wabo tequila, Cointreau, Grand Marnier and fresh lime."
- Best for Christmas Shopping Because: Nothing says Cabo like souvenir t-shirts from Cabo Wabo Cantina, which is why they make a great Christmas gift.
