I was at BW3's the other day for a Bloody Mary—their Bloody Marys are really great, except they cost nearly $5—when some stranger told me I need to go Howard's Club H if I want the best Bloody Mary in town. So, being the foodie I am, I went the next day and this is what I found.
Look at it! It's glorious! A bold Bloody Mary with a light meal clinging to the rim for only $3.75. A block of cheese pinned to a stalk of celery, 3 pieces of shrimp, a lime wedge and a pickle studded with 4 olives. I especially love the shrimp with their heads dunked in the drink for a big sip—even they can't resist. Who knew Howard's offers more than music and pool? Breakfast! But these generous cocktails aren't available all week, only Saturday through Monday (if supplies last). Kermit's and Bob Evans might be losing business if too many people read this.
The only thing that rivals this cocktail is Tuna's hospitality. Tuna is the bartender/legend who makes these tomato based masterpieces. Great job my friend. So let him be proud and order a Bloody Mary at Howard's. I don't think I will be returning to BW3's very soon.
I would like to think of myself as a food authority or a connoisseur, but really I am just a guy who enjoys food and most of all, writing about food. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and recently moved to Lake Leelanua, Mich. During the summers, I cook at a restaurant in historic Fishtown, Mich. where I became a foodie. One time I prepared a medium cheddar burger for Iron Chef Mario Batali, and he definitely shook my hand and told me how great it was. I figure maybe he was just being kind, but regardless, somebody enjoyed my food and a complement to the chef is the highest reward of cooking. So just like Mario enjoyed my burger, I hope my readers will derive just as much enjoyment out of reading my blog.
