Hello dear bloody mary fans! Please to meet you.

We’re Amber and Elaine—two Chicago transplants, brunch enthusiasts, marathon runners, friends, co-workers and aspiring bloody mary connoisseurs.

    Bloody Mary hunters unite! Love your blog. Glad I’m not the only one on this search 🙂

  2. Hi Elaine! We met for a second at the door at Nellcôte. Looks like we have someone outside the blogging world in common – I work with Patrese! (And I hear you’re from Miami?) Hope to see you at another CBN event so we can chit chat!

    please continue this! I was trying to plan a bloody bar crawl!!!

  4. I have the same passion for finding the best bloody. Born in Miami and raised in Key Biscayne FL. I bought a domain name to start a Bloody Blog but just have not had the time. Just wanted to say I love your blog and will continue to follow it. Going to Hash House A Go Go this weekend for one!

      We love meeting fellow bloody mary fans! And you should totally start your blog. Elaine (one half of this duo) is from Miami and am sure would LOVE to get the scoop on where to go when she’s home.

    Amber & Elaine,

    Jamison here from Uncle Dougies! A while ago you reviewed one of our mixes at Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba. Blog is awesome. Would love to send you guys some samples to check out and see what you think. Although we supply the bloody bar at several locations, we actually have three great, healthy, and delicious mixes available on the retail side as well. Hope to hear from you soon!
