Bambara at the Hotel Marlowe played host to the second annual Bloody Mary Bracket Challenge. Ten local restaurants brought their best mixology teams to serve up their own spin on the classic morning cocktail. This year's participants included ArtBar, Bambara Kitchen & Bar, Catalyst, Firebrand Saints, Highball Lounge, JW’s Tavern Road, Townsman, Toro and Trina’s Starlite Lounge. Each served their own sippable-sized rendition of the drink, and guests voted bracket-style (a la March Madness) to declare the People's Choice for best Bloody.
