On a warm October night under the spindly arms of a grand oak, Yelp New Orleans hosted “Yelp’s Bloody Bash” at the Tchoup Yard, the culminating party of “Yelp’s Battle of the Bloody Mary”, a competition pitting 13 local bars and restaurants against one another for Best Bloody Mary in town!
Over 300 local Yelpers turned out in costume to partake in local bites from savory Drago’s charbroiled oysters to sweet Bakers Dozen donuts and sip on libations from Saint Arnold Brewing, Full Moon Rougaroux Rum, Not Your Father’s, Old New Orleans Rum, and of course, a bevy of Bloody Marys made with Tito’s Vodka!
With a wide array of entertainment hosted by The New Movement’s Knockout Stacey Sharer and Carrie Moulder, the night was filled with aerial artists, twisting lady troupes, and more! Though an end was inevitable, with the announcement of the Bloody Mary winners! Ruby Slipper Cafe took home the Check-In Chief and Yelp’s Best of the Bloody Mary Battle for the second year in a row, and newcomer, Cornet, scooped up the most votes for Yelp’s Best of the Bloody Mary Bash!
Alas, this party also had a purpose! Yelp New Orleans was able to raise nearly $3,000 for the Children’s Neuromuscular Foundation of Louisiana through door donations and raffle tickets towards our amazing raffle prizes.
