Trailside Wins Best Bloody Mary in the Northland

Last week the WTBX 93.9FM Early Morning Show with Craig and the Kid announced the nominees for the Best Bloody Mary in the Northland, with local favorite, Trailside Lounge and Grill placing in the Top 5.  After a week of voting on pit the Trailside against Sue’s Penalty Box in Eveleth, Good Ol’ Days Bar and Grill in Tower, Junction Bar and Grill in Togo, and the Sportsman’s Restaurant and Tavern in Hibbing, the Trailside came out on top and was announced as the winner early on Monday morning.

The bars were all nominated by their patrons through the WTBX website.  Trailside owner, Jodi Gaul, said “We didn’t even know until they put up the voting, but we’re so excited!”. 

While I interviewed the owner, patron, Nadine Wells, ordered the famous Trailside Bloody Mary.  I asked her to fill me in on why she liked them.  She said “I don’t even order Bloody Mary’s anywhere else after having the Trailside’s.  Any bar can make it impressive with garnishes, but the Trailside’s homemade mix makes theirs the best!”.

That’s not to say the Trailside’s lacked garnish.  In fact, the drink is practically lunch in a glass, featuring olives, a pickle, cheese, a beef stick and a celery stick filled with cheese.  I asked Jodi what made her homemade mix so special, but her lips were sealed – all she’d tell me is that it’s “a bunch of special ingredients”. 

It’s exciting that a little local bar in the tiny town of Meadowlands beat out bars in cities with many more potential voters, like Hibbing and Eveleth.  If you’re a fan a Bloody Mary’s, make sure to try the best in the Northland at the Trailside Lounge and Grill.  The Trailside  is across the road from the Meadowlands Community Center and Park.  They’ve also just started a new “Late Night Happy Hour” Fridays and Saturdays from 11PM – 12PM with $2.75 domestic bottles, $2.50 taps and $2.75 rail drinks.
