Beatrix Streeterville Launches Make-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar

Weekends just got a whole lot more fun at the Streeterville outpost of Lettuce Entertain You’s all-day cafe, thanks to a newly minted make-your-own Bloody Mary bar with all the mix-ins you can imagine. The server gives each participating guest a piece of paper with options for local tomato juice (in-house mix, Smoke Daddy, and more), spirit (vodka, gin, whiskey, tequila, or Flywheel beer), the rim (celery salt, applewood spice, pepper bacon spice), and mix-ins ranging from Kung Pao Brussels sprouts to brown sugar bacon. Simply check off everything you’d like on the list and imbibe your custom Bloody. 671 N. St. Clair, 312-642-0001
