Every year at this time we launch the Buffalo Bloody Mary Fest. And every year, Buffalo shows up (unlike one Justin Timberlake) and sells the damn thing out in a hot minute.
Well, today’s the day WNY (well technically it happened yesterday)! Tickets for the 2019 Buffalo Bloody Mary Fest on Sunday, March 3 are ON SALE! Get ’em while you can, fam. 🔥
Here’s everything you need to know:
The fourth annual Buffalo Bloody Mary Fest hosted by Step Out Buffalo featuring Tommyrotter Distillery is back…back again!
Ten local bars and restaurants will come together under one roof on Sunday March 3, 2019 for a friendly competition to see who makes “Buffalo’s Best Bloody Mary”, “Best Garnished Bloody Mary” and “Most Creative Bloody Mary” – and *YOU* are the taste-tester who decides the winners.
All Bloody Mary’s at the event will be made using award-winning vodka from Buffalo’s own Tommyrotter Distillery. In addition to tasting each bar’s unique Bloody Mary concoction, attendees are also invited to enjoy offerings from local vendors and Bloody Mary mix companies, a live DJ, onstage entertainment, a photo booth station, games, and food for purchase from RiverWorks as well as a cash bar with even more refreshments.
Tickets are limited! Get them before they sell out!
NEW THIS YEAR: There will be more vendors and Bloody Mary Mix Companies for you to sample and shop, plus onstage competitions and entertainment that *YOU* can get in on!
HOW THE EVENT WORKS: Each attendee will get a sheet of 10 tasting tickets to try Bloody Mary samples from each of the 10 different local bars. Attendees will then get to vote for which bars deserve the titles of “Buffalo’s Best Bloody Mary”, “Best Garnished Bloody Mary”, and “Most Creative Bloody Mary” at the official voting booth.
See photos from years past at buffalobloodymaryfest.com! TBH, if you want to go to this event, I’d skip right over “marking yourself interested in the Facebook event” and get right to buying your ticket before it’s too late, but if you want to see the Facebook event too, I get it.
