Pickles? Cocktail onions? Celery? Eh. While a great bloody mary certainly starts with a balanced, housemade mix, it's the over-the-top skewers that make the bloodys at certain bars and restaurants memorable. In their quests to assemble the most outlandish garnish, Chicago bartenders reach for oysters, hot dogs, even slices of pizza. And now that football season has made 11 a.m. drinking totally acceptable - not that I was judging you before - it's high time you cozied up to one of these extreme bloody marys.

What is a bar-gument, you say? For as long as there have been watering holes, there have been disagreements. Some people prefer martinis with gin, some with vodka. Bar-guments is here to settle some longstanding bar conflicts once and for all. THIS WEEK: Is sherry cool to drink or something only Grandma orders?   Cool I gotta stick up for my misunderstood pal, sherry. I, too, used to think it was some overly sweet stuff that old people ordered at stuffy restaurants.

Candy corn shots. Caramel appletinis. Blood orange punch. Why does Halloween season drinking have to jack up your blood sugar faster than a bag of fun-size Snickers bars? If the thought of sucking down another pumpkin-flavored anything makes you want to hurl into your Gandalf hat, a classic cocktail such as the Corpse Reviver could be just your style. Despite the spooky name, Corpse Revivers weren't created with the undead in mind -- in fact, they were concocted as an energizer. "It was kind of like the Red Bull of the day," said mixologist Revae...

Since opening Lincoln Park pizzeria Homeslice earlier this year, owners Josh Iachelli and Clay Hamilton have introduced brunch service -- complete with Rumchata cereal and a pizza slice-garnished bloody mary -- and built out a spacious backyard patio.  Their latest project is tricking out a 1969 Airstream trailer with lounge seating for 20. "It is heated, cozy and will be open through the winter," Iachelli said. It should be ready to make its debut on the patio by the weekend of Nov. 15.  Want more?
