Will anyone unseat 2020 winner Jerry’s Bar? This year’s event is presented with support from sponsors and supporters of Stateside Vodka and Devilfish Ink.

Monster Mash: Northern Liberties Bloody Mary Challenge will run from Saturday, October 9th through Sunday, October 17th, 2021, with select restaurants participating on weekends only. This year there are even more restaurants participating, including the about-to-open Figo Ristorante, North 3rd, North Bowl, Jerry's Bar, Anejo, SET NoLibs, Urban Village, El Camino, Cantina Dos Segundos, Standard Tap, Germantown Garden, Germantown Garden Grill, The Abbaye, Heritage, Bourbon and Branch, and Silk City. Each competing restaurant will feature a Halloween-themed Bloody Mary with spooktacular fixings.

Monster Mash is pay-as-you-go over nine days, giving Bloody Mary lovers a chance to try as many as they like with the time to enjoy either indoor or outdoor dining at their comfort level. Patrons rank their drinks in four categories (right spice, taste, “bling,” and Halloween-i-ness), with an overall winner taking top honors. Brunch and lunch reservations are encouraged.
