When life hands you an extra hour of ante meridiem daylight, you seize the crap of that day and go to brunch. Here, where to wash down some eggs, bacon, and sweet, fluffy starch with the official (and healthiest!) cocktail of morning.
You know about the famous brunch buffet, but did you know that Salty's has a buffet of Bloody Mary fixings as well? Food buffet specials are for the first seatings only: 9:30 to 9:45 on Saturdays ($39.95) and 8:45 to 9:00 on Sundays ($45.95). As for the booze, novelty vodkas and accoutrements rotate, but anticipate an array of vodkas, mixes, pickles (maybe wrapped with prosciutto), or peppers wrapped with serrano ham, or sticks of salami.
Coming in first for Bloody Mary variety—there are eight listed on the menu, with names like Bloody Fairy (denoting the addition of absinthe), Bloody Pirate (rum), and BBQ Bloody (whiskey and barbeque sauce)—this Cap Hill eatery also offers half off all brunch menu items before 11am on Saturdays and Sundays.
The Laurelhurst steakhouse's weekend brunch HH consists of food specials in the bar from 9am to 10am on Saturdays and Sundays and, while it's not technically a special, the $3.75 Bloody Mary with house-made mix is a steal.
Eques in Bellevue Place also let's you jazz up your own $3 Bloody Mary ($5 for top shelf booze) at a DIY-style bar. Entrees are $3 off after 12pm. Same deal after 8:30 on weekdays, but not as fun: You have to let someone else make your drink.
