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:
The Belmont's “Belmont Bloody Blues” ($8)
This proteinaceous concoction is mixed with BBQ and steak sauce, then garnished with beef jerky -- delicious, but leaving you strangely terrified to answer your phone.
Taste On Melrose's “Tasty Mary” ($7)
It's nice when the name of your restaurant can be easily converted into praise for your menu items! Also nice: pepperoncini brine.
Luna Park Kitchen & Cocktails' “Roasted Tomato and Spiced Bloody Mary” (2 for $12.50)
This muddled concoction includes chili flakes that, just like cartoon tiger flakes, taste gr-r-reat!, and also go well with a late breakfast.
Oakfire's “Oakfire Signature Bloody Mary” ($9)
Packing a punch with bacon, grilled shrimp, pickled okra, and a stick of Slim Jim that you can snap into… OH YEAH!
The Olive Kitchen + Bar's “Caprese Bloody Mary” ($8)
A balsamic reduction is drizzled over this ‘tail that’s loaded with 2oz of mozzarella (note: buying one for a girl is not considered cheesy).
Henry’s Hat's “Sundried Tomato Spicy Bloody Mary” (2 for $13.50)
You’ll get two sundried tomato ‘tails, and best of all, they can't take away the way you wear your hat.
