    Who serves the best Bloody Mary in the Des Moines area?

    I've had them at Wellmans, Okaboji B & G, Old Chicago, Tonic and the Clipper in Ankeny. Out of all those places I have to say the Clipper had the best.
    Anyone have one some place that it was real good? I'm still searching for the grail of Bloody Marys in Des Moines area.

    I'm partial to the ones at the High Life Lounge.



    Maybe it's the ambiance of the place.

    Not Des Moines, but in Brooklyn we used to go to a place called Commonwealth. The bartender/owner shredded fresh horseradish in the bloody mary... hands down best I've ever had.

    And you can get free hot dogs, popcorn and five dollar bills out of the ATM. It's also pitch black in there at noon, so you feel okay about drinking that early.
