Out On The Town: Bloody Mary Fest

Out On The Town: Bloody Mary Fest

Teeny secret: I used to hate tomatoes. Aside from pasta/pizza sauce and ketchup, keep tomatoes away. But a few years ago, I finally decided to give them a chance. I’ve grown.

Enter Bloody Mary Fest 2018. Not only am I a tomato connoisseur, I drink Bloody Marys. So it was a no-brainer to try out this event. Located at the Exdo Center, Bloody Mary Fest brands itself as the biggest, baddest Bloody Mary competition. Restaurants and Bloody Mary vendors from throughout the Denver metro area were there to show off their best drinks and, of course, garnishes.

There were two ultra-long (but fast-moving lines): one for Lucile’s Creole Cafe and one for Bacon Social House. Duh. Everyone wants a Bloody Mary with bacon and/or a cajun shrimp.

My hands-down, no contest favorite of the day: Tree Line Bloody Mary Mixes pineapple habanero Bloody Mary. Unique and simply delicious. Sweet, spicy, perfect. They wound up taking home best prize for bottled mixes. I will definitely be finding in stores!

In sum, Bloody Mary Fest was good, fun, and full of tomatoes.
