Best Bloody Mary

Are you hungry or thirsty? The answer is always “yes” with a local Blood Mary! Volume One readers love to hit up Big T’s Saloon (2007 3rd St., Eau Claire), where the Bloodys are so good, people who visit from out of town literally consider moving to the Chippewa Valley.  Milwaukee Burger Company (2620 E Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire) comes in second, with larger-than-life offerings that will leave you wide-eyed and satisfied. In third place is the classic, delicious offering from Girolamo’s Court’n House Bar & Grill (113 W Grand Ave., Eau Claire), always served with an ice-cold chaser. Now that is a fine Bloody Mary.  –Cullen Ryan
