A Man Named Brad Wonders…

A question, to which I suspect many Slog readers are searching for an answer:

Where’s the best place in Seattle to get a bloody mary with breakfast on a Tuesday?

It shouldn’t be so difficult to answer this one, but seemingly it is.

Thank you.

Well, Brad, here is a piece that the lovely Marti Jonjak wrote on the topic of bloody marys (or would that be bloodies mary?); however, I don’t believe any of these places are open before 11 a.m. on Tuesday. Two places spring to mind that are: the Mecca and Cafe Presse.

Don't leave out the 5 Point. That would be remiss.

Whatever you do, do NOT go to 22 Doors. They will tell you they serve the best damn Bloody Mary of every ever. It's actually the worst. You could get a better one at Denny's. Denny's probably doesn't serve them, but that doesn't change anything I've said.

The 5 Spot makes a pretty ripping Bloody Mary.

Ray's Boathouse has the best in the city, and they weren't even mentioned in your piece. But still, the best. Hands-down.

And 22 Doors is the worst bar on capitol hill. I'm not surprised their bloody mary's suck ass.

U District: Kai's Bistro, 43rd, right off the ave.

Any of the Chow Food spots are open that early and since they're located all over town, from West Seattle to Capitol Hill, Ballard to the U District, and Queen Anne, that's my vote.

The worst bar on Capitol Hill is the Bus Stop. Because it refuses to open.

Well, if your near Qwest Field, hit Jimmy's on 1st. They have a nice bloody mary! Comes with prawn on top, and the obligtory olive and whatnot on a stick too. Eat the prawn, and then be sure to mix before drinking, as the pepper settles at the bottom. Yum.

@5:

Kai's doesn't serve breakfast, and doesn't open until late afternoon. You don't want to go there anyhow.

Rusty Pelican in Wallingford on 45th. They're open early and serve AWESOME bloody marys.

Sidenote: Mecca also has fucking awesome Philly Cheesesteaks and their mashed potatos and country gravy are sooooo good! That, and the drinks are the size of a small baby's head! Just Sayin'.

@2 Some Denny's do serve hard liquor, I know there is one in Bellevue that does, couldn't tell you the address through.

The best place in Seattle to get a Bloody Mary is ...

In Bed.

When your grateful lover brings it to you.

like that's ever happened to you Will. Also, the way you describe things makes you appear to be a creepy old man trying to remain young. It's creepy. Stop it.

The Hurricane has great bloddy marys IF you ask for it thunder-style. That means it comes with pepperoni!
