Sweet Betty's Bistro. Bloody Betty, Bloody Bad.
I take my job seriously. And by job, I mean drinking a whole lot of bloody marys and writing about it. And by seriously, I mean drunkenly. But back to the point. I take my job seriously. So when I get served a bloody mary straight out of a store bought jug of Mr. and Mrs. T's bloody mary mix, I get mad. I mean, I get it. You're lazy. You're cheap. You use some unpronounceable Russian vodka from the bottom shelf of a back alley liquor store. Or HRD. Or some other horrible excuse for vodka. But come on, at least you could attempt to disguise it. Add some Tabasco, a squeeze of lime, maybe a little cracked pepper and voila! At least it's something. It's not just Mr. and Mrs. T's bloody mary mix. It's your own "creation" if you will. And then maybe you could get away with calling it a "Bloody Betty" or, as it's listed on the menu, a "Bloody Betty (Mary). " But as it stands. It's not a freakin' "Bloody Betty"! No, it's a bloody mary, just like the jug of Mr. and Mrs. T's says it is. And six bucks? Really? I used to get a better $2 bloody mary from the rundown saloon next to the porn theater downtown. I'm just sayin'.Celery Stalk
