It’s almost the weekend, CLE! If you’re anything like me, one of the best things to do on a weekend is enjoy brunch. Personally, my favorite brunch drink is the Bloody Mary. Whether I’m being creative at the Bloody Mary bars at Deagan’s Kitchen or Touch Supper Club or just enjoying one off the menu, these drinks start my Sunday off right.
The Bloody Mary Showdown takes place on Sunday, November 6 from 11am to 2pm at Market Restaurant and Bar in Rocky River. There are two ways you can participate in this event: you can compete for the title of “Best Bloody Mary in Cleveland” or you can judge the entries!
Think your Bloody Mary has what it takes? To enter the competition, click here. There is a $25 entrance fee and Market will provide you with 360 Vodka, beverage dispenser, sample cups, sip sticks, ice and a covered table.
What can you win? First place gets $300, a highlighted feature in Cleveland Magazine, and your Bloody Mary on Market’s menu for a year! Second place earns $150 and third place earns $50!
Want to judge the entries? 50% of the score to win the competition comes from fan votes and 50% from the guest judges, so your opinion counts! For $15, you can have unlimited Bloody Mary sampling and for $30 you get unlimited samples, Market’s Sunday brunch, and a one-year subscription to Cleveland Magazine!
