Take a look at this gigantic bloody mary! Nevermind that it’s in a Guinness glass — isn’t it gorge? It is the signature brunch-time drink at Small Bar in University Heights. Yes, that is shrimp you see skewered on a stick along with olives, a pearl onion, a gherkin and pepperoncini, among other things. Just a lone celery stalk wasn’t going to do it for this guy. A fellow bloody mary drinker saw the bartender adding finishing touches to the robust drink and said, “it looks like my backyard!” Amen to that.
Happy birthday to Vince, who organized the splendid brunch there. Cheers!
