Chicago, you're getting a bloody mary festival

Chicago's Bloody Mary Competition planned for June 8

April 29, 2014|By Kate Bernot, @redeyeeatdrink | RedEye

Sorry, mimosa fans, you can sit this one out. The city will welcome Chicago's Bloody Mary Competition, its first festival dedicated solely to a brunch cocktail, June 8 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Park West

Guests can judge two-ounce samples from bars and restaurants including Fountainhead, Longman & Eagle, Riverview Tavern, Shoe's Pub, Three Aces, Stanley's Kitchen and Tap and nine others, then vote to crown a winner. 

"This is meant to celebrate what Sunday Funday is, and the bloody mary's role in that," said Brian Ferber of Jam Productions, which will produce the event. "This is also about celebrating different neighborhoods in Chicago."

Aside from bloody mary samples, all made with sponsor Tito's Vodka, attendees can consider the competitors' display bloody mary, which will represent a full-sized drink in all its garnished glory

Food, music and giveaways for Tito's swag and Jam concert tickets also are planned.

Tickets will go on sale at noon Friday, May 2. Check back for an update on pricing.
