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.
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 are $25 and are on sale now.
Chicago, you're getting a bloody mary festival
