Things are going to get bloody on Saturday, Oct. 5 when local favorites like Kupros, Dad’s Kitchen, Capitol Garage, de Vere’s and other area restaurants will fight for the title of Best Bloody Mary at the second annual Sacramento Bloody Mary Festival! Last year’s two champs, Station 16 (Judge’s Choice) and Fat City (People’s Choice), will also return to battle for a repeat, and other confirmed contenders include Easy on I and The Purple Place. It all goes down from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. at The Bank (629 J St.), a new food hall concept with multiple dining and drinking establishments in one building. Last year’s Bloody Mary Festival sold out, so this year, organizers Crave Sacramento doubled the amount of space available, but that doesn’t mean you should wait. Tickets are $30, which includes unlimited Bloody Mary tastings, and you also get a token to vote for your favorite. Stick around to see if your fave is what the panel of judges also chooses. Bites will be available for purchase through some of The Bank’s restaurants. Type into your computer or smart device to snag passes and
