DescriptionHIGHWOOD, IL (JULY 28, 2019) – The 10th Annual Bloody Mary Fest has been declared a wild success as record crowds gathered in Everts Park on Sunday July 28th to enjoy fantastic food, drinks, live entertainment all day long, and of course, a plethora of Bloody Mary’s. Meanwhile, a dozen fierce competitors battled for the esteemed title of Best Bloody Mary in the Midwest in the categories of Judges Choice, People’s Choice, Best Garnish, and Most Creative.

Mixologists from competing bars and restaurants shook up their one-of-a-kind recipes for the panel of formal Bloody Mary celebrity judges comprised of: Lee A. Litas, Freelance Food and Features Writer for Chicago Tribune/Pioneer Press, Kemmie Ryan, Senior Special Projects Editor for JWC Media, Sheridan Road, North Shore Weekend and Daily North Shore, Andrew Nicks, President at 22nd Century Media, Marjie Killeen, Editor in Chief of NS Modern Luxury, Jason Pirock, from Eat, Drink and Bloody Mary, and Mark Czubak, restaurant/bar industry veteran and now with Glunz Wines. And, while the celebrity judges chose the winners for Best Bloody Mary, Best Garnish and Most Creative, attendees did their own Bloody Mary sampling and cast their votes for the 2019 People's Choice Winner. For the first time in 10 years of Bloody Mary Fest history, there was a tie for first place in the Judge’s Choice.

And the winners of the 10th Annual Bloody Mary Fest are...
