It’s bloody Mary time on August 28th when eight bartenders will compete for the winning recipe at Sunday, Bloody Sunday in the newly renovated ~BAR DRAKE~ in the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. Guests will get to sample the eight unique bloody Mary entries, plus brunch bites will be served to honor the debut of chef Jen Biesty’s new brunch menu, so you can line your stomach with, for example, the “Biestwich” BLT with crisp Llano Seco pork belly, avocado, vegetable aioli, and greens on a ciabatta bun.

Which of these competitors will take home the title of “Best Bloody Mary”? Scott Baird, Bon Vivants; Bret Sylvester, Otis Lounge; Dan Smith, Good Gracious! Events; Jason “Buffalo” LoGrasso, Cotogna; Matthew Harrison, Delarosa; Oliver Lee, Four Seasons; Vincent Toscano, Rye; or Brian Deconinck, Scala’s Bistro? They’ll be using Square One Organic Spirits infused with cucumber, botanicals, or basil.

The competition will run from 11am-1pm. The judges will decide the “Best Bloody Mary” while guests get to vote on the “Crowd Favorite.” Tickets are $10 in advance, $20 at the door, and include the brunch nibbles and all eight tastes. Proceeds benefit CUESA. 432 Powell St. at Sutter, 415-395-8555.
