Reader: Put the Brakes on the Freakin' Buffet at Bloody Mary Bars

Bloody Mary bars just keep getting bigger and better. Punch Bowl Social took Best Bloody Mary Bar honors for the second year running — but Lou's Food Bar just introduced a beer brunch to go with its Bloody Mary bar that makes this place look like a real contender for next year. There's even a hot-chicken option! But don't tell John, who says:
Can we pump the brakes on putting a whole freakin buffet in a Bloody Mary? I ordered one in Vegas recently and it came with a chicken wing on the olive skewer!!! Really?
What's your favorite Bloody Mary bar? What item would you like to see included?
