Best Bloody Mary 

Bender's Bar & Grill

At the risk of bringing hellfire on ourselves by not acknowledging the Bloody Mary at a different Mission punk bar (starts with Z, kicks you out a lot), we must recognize excellence when the situation demands it. A Bloody Mary needs to do two things: be as dense with foliage as the Congo, and have a kick. Bender's Bloody Mary comes with some serious vegetation, but also a freaking Slim Jim, mechanically separated chicken and all. Frankly, after bacon went all highbrow, we needed to listen to our inner Randy "Macho Man" Savage for a little lowbrow excitement. Bender's Bloody will eradicate a hangover even though the pulsating noise from the jukebox should theoretically worsen it.
