I love brunch. To me the word brunch makes me think of weekends, friends, yummy inventive breakfast food and of course…drinks! And not just any drink…a bloody mary.
I used to not like bloody marys (crazy, I know), but I just hadn’t had a good bloody mary. Eventually, I realized I loved them. Most people I know like their bloody Mary’s a particular way. I like a spicy bloody mary, but not too spicy. I love it with worchester, horseradish and even some pickled vegetables.
And since I’ve finally found my love for bloody mary’s I cannot wait to attend this Sunday’s Tampa Bay Bloody Mary Festival. That’s right…a whole festival dedicated to the bloody mary! The festival takes place on Sunday, May 3, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. A whole bunch of local Tampa restaurants will be competing for the best bloody mary, including Datz, Ella’s, Irish 31, Boca and Carmel. There will also be live music from Busted Blues. For more information visit: www.tampabloodymaryfest.com
Lucky for you I’m sharing the love and I have not one, but two general admission tickets up for grabs. These tickets will get you unlimited samples of bloody mary drinks as well as 1 full sized drink of your choice. More full sized drinks and brunch food will be available for purchase.
To enter to win these two tickets to the Tampa Bay Bloody Mary Festival just leave a comment below with how you like your bloody mary! I will choose a random winner using random.org and will contact the winner. Giveaway will end Thursday, April 30 at midnight.
Good luck and hope to see you there!
