This awesome muscle tee is for Hussong's Cantina in Baja California. Hussong's Cantina has a history over 130 years long and legendary in its own right. In addition to being the oldest bar in B.C., Hussong's is allegedly the home of the margarita drink. The story goes that in 1941, a bartender at Hussong's invented the drink for a German Ambassador's daughter named Margarita Henkel.
German Johann Hussong emigrated to Baja California to get his share of the newly discovered gold deposits south of the border. Unfortunately the quest for gold didn't work out so Hussong began running a small trade route instead. One day while on his route, Hussong's carriage flipped and injured his traveling companion, Newt House. Without any nearby hospitals, Hussong and House were forced to settle in at a cantina while they waited for House to heal. The cantina's owner, J.J. Meiggs, disappeared shortly after and Hussong took over running the bar. He eventually bought a neighboring building and opened Hussong's Cantina, which has changed very little since 1892.
