Bloody Mary Fest: 11/18/18

If you missed the 2017 Bloody Mary Fest, don’t worry... it’s back and even bigger. This year, the Bloody Mary Fest is on Sunday, November 18th at the Main Street Armory. Here’s why we think you should go:

14 Bloody Mary Samples

Each ticket includes samples from 10 restaurants and new this year: 3 popular Bloody Mary mixes. Not only are you getting to try 13 completely different Bloody Mary’s, each restaurant has a garnish that is equally as great as their drink… yum!

It’s a Competition

Not only is this a fun event, it’s a competition. The constant for each Bloody Mary is that they’ll be made with Tommyrotter Distillery Vodka. After that it’s up to each restaurant (and mix) to impress YOU. Every attendee will be able to vote after they’ve sampled from each vendor.

Vote for categories like "Rochester's Best Bloody Mary", and "Best Garnished Bloody Mary", and the "Best Bloody Mary Mix".

The Lineup
