Our readers take their Bloody Marys very seriously. So when we asked you for your favorites, we knew this latest Milwaukee Challenge would be a fun one. We provided you with nearly 40 bars to choose from (plus the "other" option), and hundreds of you voted on your top picks.

Now, we'll take your top two choices -- Trocadero and The Wicked Hop -- and pit them off, head to head. Then, our very picky editorial staff will reveal our top pick for Milwaukee's Best Bloody Mary. Stay tuned for the results in early July.

I absolutely agree with those first 3. Though the service at Wicked Hop was atrocious yesterday during the Packer game! Twisted Fork has a very decent bloody too. They won the 9/08 east side bloody mary contest. This website gives a recap of the contest: http://mkereview.blogspot.com/

I would have to agree that by far Sobelman's Pub and Grill has the coolest bloody in town. And yeah it is like a meal. Recently they hosted a fundraiser event, and had a bloody mary competition to see who could duplicate their custom concoction. And yeah, the burgers aren't so bad either, in fact one of the best I've ever had in the country.

There is no question that Sobelmans Pub & Grill serves the best bloody marys in Milwaukee and probably the whole midwest. The drink is great tasting and topped off with a complete a meal. You have to see it to believe and a picture is available on their website www.milwaukeesbestburgers.com They also serve Milwaukees Best Burgers.

the BEST Bloody Mary I have ever had ANYWHERE was at the old SOMEPLACE ELSE on Water Street. Made from the real ingredients, none of that Mr.& Mrs. T swill. Served with a 3oz. beer chaser. It cut right through that Friday morning haze, after a night at UP & UNDER. P.J.King Oakland, CA
