This was a HIT since the day that it was created--the Bloody Mary Festival here in Buffalo, NY. Shea's hosted the uber-popular event last and to get a ticket, can be a bit challenging. Therefore, the event has moved to Riverworks on Ganson Street on Sunday, March 5. According to Step out Buffalo says that their event this year will have some new features as well.

A VIP section in the upper level, water stations throughout the venue, and more interactive activities for all you Bloody-lovers to partake in. ALSO *any bar* interested in competing can apply for consideration, and all awards – “Buffalo’s Best Bloody Mary”, “Best Garnished Bloody Mary”, and “Most Creative Bloody Mary” – will be voted on by YOU using your smartphone during the event with the results being displayed in realtime. So fetch.
