Stop number 3 of the day was the newly renovated Zeitgeist and their classic Mary’s –they haven’t changed a bit, and apparently nor has the bars disdain for taking photos (my bad).
The thing I like about the Mary’s here is that they’re exactly what you think of when you think of a good ole bloody mary. They’re refreshing, great balance of spice and heartiness, it really hits the spot after a night on the town. As one Crawler put it, they’re “surly but good on a nice day”. I second that one!
The bartender manning the shaker was a really nice dude, which is contrary to 98% of things you’ve heard about the bartenders at Zeitgeist, and he was good at his craft. Very efficient, heavy on the vodka, no extra fluff necessary. Bonus points for having Street Fighter 2 in the bar, nothing makes me happier than good Marys and kicking some butt with Blanka.
