Monster Mash Bloody Mary Challenge
Our second annual celebration of the Bloody Mary kicks off October 9th, 2021. The Monster Mash adds a haunted twist to this storied beverage, challenging more than a dozen Northern Liberties bars to up their game and add some spooky design. Sponsored by locally made Stateside Vodka.
Drinkers will have nine days to taste each bloody and rate them on spice, taste, bling, and “halloweeniness.” Bragging rights will be awarded for each category and for the best overall Bloody Mary in the neighborhood.
