There are so many great things about enjoying a Bloody Mary on the weekend, namely that you’re drinking a Bloody Mary, and... “I DON’T GOTTA WORK TODAAAAAY, Y’ALL!!!” Transforming this already excellent weekend ritual into something even more dominant: Thrillist's Bloody Hour, when on weekends from Sept 24th to Oct 30th some of the best bars and restos in town will offer special prices on the king of morning drinks.
And now the moment you’ve been waiting two sentences for, where to get ‘em:
Brasserie Beaumarchais' “The Bloody Beaumarchais” ($6)
These achieve high-altitude with freshly ground Himalayan salt, so you can taste Everest while only having to ascend a few L train steps.
La Silhouette's “Bloody Hell” ($6)
If British humor is too dry, whet your tongue with this peppercorn-and-mustard-seed-laced number named after the Brits' favorite term for expressing frustration.
Gravy's “Amarillo Air Raid” ($8)
Unlike the Texas Panhandle city's infamous 72oz steak, this spicy number is a real eye-opener.
Asellina's “Maria Sanguinosa” ($8)
Italicized with a shot of grappa, it’s the only Bloody on the list that you can order by singing “Maria, Maria”.
Gastroarte's “Gazpacho Bloody Mary” ($6)
This Bloody's blended with plum tomatoes, garlic cloves, Spanish onion, and white bread, for a taste that just can’t be wheat.
