Ladies and gents, we’ve got the details for the best hangover cure in Tampa. We know there’s a few kings and queens of “one more” out there, so we’ll let you in on a royal Tampa secret to keep the headaches at bay. Big City Events is throwing the best brunch festival in Tampa – The Tampa Bay Bloody Mary Festival is back for a Sunday of drool-worthy drinks from the best local bruncheries and bars. It’s the celery on top of a well-partied weekend, and the savoriest start to a long work week. So, get your crew together and get over to the Tampa Garden Club on Sunday, April 28th at 11 A.M. for an afternoon of tomato-ey goodness!
This year’s lineup of participating Bloody Mary mixers includes the best Tampa cocktail joints, like Ella's, First Chance Last Chance and Datz. They’ll be shaking up insanely bloody concoctions that Mary Tudor herself would be splendidly proud of. The coveted Golden Celery Award is up for grabs and will go to the Bloody Mary with the most love. A general admission ticket, which is only $40, will get you into the party, a vote in the competition and unlimited samples of all the delicious cocktails. Sample all the drinks, choose your favorite and cast your vote. As if that wasn’t tasty enough, your ticket also includes one full-sized drink!
