Here at Republic Tequila we’ve always considered Texas Independence Day as a company holiday – it’s certainly our favorite day of the year – and we loved getting so spend it in some of the most iconic locations around the state this year.
Watch our recap Video here!
On our Where in the Republic Tour earlier this month, we met some great friends who share our appreciation for the significance of March 2, and we’ve shared their Texas Tales below.
As our friend Jay B says about Texas Independence Day, “you’d have this much state pride too if your state was once a country.”
Cheers to the Lone Star State! Here are a few stories shared with us on March 2nd.
The reason I know when it’s Texas Independence Day is because of a song by Chris Wall – Texas musician. He talked about sitting on the front porch on the 2nd of March with my shirt all starched. I saw him at the Broken Spoke and it was Texas Independence Day.

I met my wife at a Texas Independence open mixer party at UT in 1985.

We met in Garland and were married in Arkansas. We’re came to Fredericksburg to celebrate our wedding anniversary, which is March 6. But we got March 2nd off because we’re government employees and it’s Texas Independence Day!

I’m proud to report on today, March 2, 2012, I spotted my first buzzard of the season from my front yard in Marfa, TX. To those of you who don’t know, in West Texas this is a sure sign that spring is just around the corner. Couldn’t make for a nice all around Friday.
