Best Bloody Mary
1st Place: Milwaukee Burger Co.
2nd Place: Girolamo’s Court’n House
3rd Place: Big T’s Saloon
Milwaukee Burger Co. (2620 E. Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire) comes in first with six kinds of Bloody Marys, including the Big Mil Bloody, garnished with a mini-cheeseburger, bacon, and cheddar cheese. At Girolamo’s Court’n House (113 W. Grand Ave., Eau Claire) you can count on a consistently delicious, comfort-in-a-glass, 16-ounce Bloody Mary with the classic pickle and olive garnish. Big T’s Saloon (2007 Third St., Eau Claire) has Bloody Marys during the week, but on Sundays they pull out all the stops with their Ultimate Bloody Mary: It’s 16-ounce with 26 available garnishes such as mini-sandwiches, shrimp, bacon and Laffy Taffy. And they open at 6am every day so you can start your Sunday Funday like a boss. —Amanda Foxcroft
