Frankenmuth’s Best Bloody Mary challenge Nov. 26

  The Knights of Bavaria,  Frankenmuth’s newest fraternal organization, thinks that there’s more to a Bloody Mary than just tomato juice and vodka over ice.

  Various drinking establishments in Frankenmuth believe that they have cracked the code of the Bloody Mary and that theirs is the best Frankenmuth has to offer.

  On Sunday, November 26, from 11am-5pm, the Knights of Bavaria will present "Frankenmuth’s Best Bloody Mary.” Each of the seven participating locations- Bavarian Inn's Michigan on Main, Zehnder's of Frankenmuth, Tiffany's, T.Dub's, Prost, Frankenmuth Brewery and St. Julian's  will put forward their Bloody Mary.

  Ticket holders are invited to travel to any or all of the participating establishments and sample a 4-6 oz. Bloody Mary. An online vote will then determine "the best".

  Tickets to the event are available at any of the participating locations, from a member of the Knights of Bavaria or by contacting the Knights of Bavaria Facebook page.

  The proceeds from this event will help fund an annual scholarship to be given to a local college-bound student at Frankenmuth High School in the spring of 2018.
