Square Images (All Years) — photo 1 of 461: My first Bloody Mary, which I tried at the “secret” Broom Closet bar, located on the third floor of the Art House, one of four Old St. Francis Hotel buildings on the McMenamins Old St. Francis School property in downtown Bend, Oregon. Because I don’t particularly like tomato juice, I was hoping that the vodka and other ingredients would mask that flavor, but no such luck ... it tasted strongly of tomato juice. Also, I didn’t care for the salt on the glass rim. Once in a lifetime is enough for me, so I won’t be having a Bloody Mary again. May 2017.
Mine was pretty modest compared to the one that McMenamins Zeus Café was offering on the same day:
“Large Marge’s Bloody Mary — there is nothing ‘pee wee’ about this Bloody Mary ... pickled egg, Nashville Hot Chicken and waffle breakfast slider, house red hot, breakfast sausage, celery, pickled veggies, and bacon piled atop a mason jar sized double Bloody Mary, $25.”
