Nothing beats a good Bloody Mary thankfully the Twin Ports has plenty of places to get one. Of course, what makes a good Bloody Mary is matter of personal taste. Do you like them good and thick? Hot and spicy?

Bloody Mary lovers across the Northland are all invited to decide who has the best Bloody Mary on the hill when Skyline Social & Games in Hermantown hosts the first-annual Bloody Bash On The Hill.

The event is presented by Townsquare Media and it not only promises amazing bloodies, but there will also be fantastic beer and even live music. The Northwoods’s Band will take the stage outside in the sand from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Even better, all net proceeds from the event and bar sales will be donated to Never Surrender Inc. to help fund the fight against ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

The Bloody Bash On The Hill takes place Sunday, August 7 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the decks at Skyline Social & Games. During those four fun hours, local bars and restaurants will compete to win the Bloody Mary contests.

Tickets are on sale now for just $15, which includes a Bloody Mary sample from each bar & restaurant, beer snit samples from each brewery, and live music.

Tickets will be $20 at the door, so make sure to buy your tickets before midnight on Saturday, August 6 to save $5.


Winners will be determined by attendees, who will cast their votes for the Best Tasting Bloody Mary and the Best Presented Bloody Mary.
