Sunday Funday is a day meant to steer clear from those impending “Sunday scaries” and do FUN, bay-side-vibe-type, burgh things such as a good old fashioned Bloody Mary roundup, perhaps! Bloody Mary lovers can sip and savor with a taste tour of some bloody Burgh staples below:
Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille
Shake things up and take a dive with your taste buds into a savory tall glass mounted with a soft shell crab with manzanilla olive eyes! These cocktail garnishes will fill you up with Luke Wholey’s acclaimed Standard Bloody Mary. Mixed with Skyy vodka and its famous house mix, it’s garnished with celery, pickle, olive, and zesty lemon and lime. Bloody Mary lovers can add Old Bay steamed shrimp, brown sugar candied thick cut bacon, or soft shell crab to satisfy those towered cravings. It could be a whole breakfast, we think!
Relax on the deck, embrace the breeze, and take a moment to savor the options that Redfin Blues brings to the Bloody Mary game. The riverside of this Washington Landing oasis serves its Bloody Marys by the glass or pitcher. From there, pick your Sunday Funday poison between Absolut Peppar, The Bay Vodka, or Titos. Stay tuned for Wigle Eau de Pickle to be on the list of options as well! Then, build your own bloody concoction by mixing it with its traditional mix, Pittsburgh Pickle Company’s Briney Mary, or Horseradish Hammer. The options are bloody bountiful!
Muddy Waters Oyster Bar
Muddy Waters Oyster Bar has its brunch on Sundays from 10:30 a.m.- 3 p.m. and offers a Bloody Mary with its house made mix. Plus, order cocktails to go and add a quart of Bloody Mary mix for $8. It’s homemade guzzling and slurping… just add vodka or tequila and pair with some shucked oysters or other takeout options- voila!
Sip and destroy those hefty garnishes with The Commoner’s own Bloody Larry! The Commoner serves its brunch menu Saturday and Sundays, 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Pair this Sunday Funday cocktail with mains like the restaurant’s Malted Waffle, Avocado Crab Toast, or a classic, Steel City breakfast of champions, its Pierogi and Kielbasa. There’s more to choose from in The Commoner’s Brunch Menu for pick up, delivery, or reservation.
