Kuppa Cafe Bloody Mary, Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok and Phuket: A Bloody Mary Tour

2 Celery Stalks, International

Thailand is a place for sipping cocktails out of fresh coconuts, lounging on beautiful white sand beaches and running into the occasional elephant.  But during my whirlwind two week honeymoon in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pai and Phuket, I found that as much as I love Thailand, the bloody marys... well... they kinda suck.  Maybe they… Read More...

The CookHouse Bloody Mary

The CookHouse, Lake Shasta. A Crap Bloody Mary.

2 Celery Stalks, California

Okay, kids.  This is going to be a down-and-dirty, to-the-point kind of post.  I’m up to my ears in moving boxes, and my desk is currently covered in all sorts of random ass things, and quite frankly, after reading this post, you’re probably not going to visit this joint anyway. I was hungry.  I was… Read More...


And the SF Bloody Mary Fest winners are…

California, Inspirational

With nearly 600 attendees, the 1st Annual San Francisco Bloody Mary Festival was an absolute success!  I had a blast and certainly drank my fair share of bloody marys.  It was great to see so many readers there, too!  Special shout out to my LBC crew for manning the Drunken Tomato table, and thank you to… Read More...

It's 6am, and I have a hankering for some penny slots and an over-the-top bloody mary. Four and a half hours later and I'm sitting at Todd English P.U.B. in Las Vegas.

Sarabeth's New York Bloody Mary_

Sarabeth’s Stealthy Spice Surprise

3 Celery Stalks, New York

I broke my one rule. “Don’t ever drink tequila…like ever.” And I was paying a dear price for my folly. Luckily for you, that meant only one thing: The Hangover Avenger was back, scouring the streets of NYC in search of the perfect sidekick to defeat Evil Hangover. Would Sarabeth’s bloody mary rise to the… Read More...

Lazy Dog Cafe Brunch Cocktail Menu

Lazy Dog Cafe. Bloody Mary Times Two.

3.5 Celery Stalks, California

I may be on some strange dog kick right now.  Last week it was Dogz Bar & Grill; this week it's Lazy Dog Cafe.  A quick Google search shows that I have exhausted all the dog-themed restaurants in close proximity, though a "Crooked Duck" and a "Blackbird Cafe" are not far.  Bird theme anyone? I… Read More...

Dogz Bar & Grill. Hot Dogs, a Furry and Vodka-Filled Bloody Marys.

3 Celery Stalks, California

Sometimes, things aren't as they seem.  Or maybe, don't judge a book by its cover.  Or possibly, a first impression isn't always a lasting impression.  They may all be applicable here. I had driven past this person in a full-body, floppy-eared, brown dog costume more times than I can remember.  I'll refer to "him" as a… Read More...

Salty's Bloody Mary Portland

Salty’s on the Columbia. Habanero Hell.

2 Celery Stalks, Oregon

Sometimes life gives you lemons. And sometimes you don't even get the damn lemons. On a Sunday not too long ago, life gave me a bad bloody mary, not even a lemon to be found. Described as Salty's Spicy Mary with "house infused habanero vodka, house made bloody mary mix, and a spicy rim," I… Read More...
