In honor of its 85th anniversary, El Cholo will give a free meal to all area teachers, firefighters and police officers tonight. All you need to do is show some ID, order an entree (limited to one, but any entree on the menu) and voila. Margaritas are on you. Plus, each restaurant will donate proceeds to a children's charity of choice. Deal starts at 5pm and goes until closing at the original Western location, Santa Monica, La Habra and Irvine.
