All Clichés Are Bigger in Texas Award: 32-Ounce Bloody Mary Edition

In a piece about Anvil Pub’s 32-ounce Bloody Mary, CentralTrack’s Melissa Mack:

Our reputation here in Dallas is that we like everything big. Our hair, our football stadiums, you name it.

Funny, then, that most Bloody Mary options in the area brunch scene are served rather bare — just some vodka, a little mix, some salt around the rim and maybe a few accouterments thrown in (maybe an asparagus stalk, a lemon wedge or a couple of other things along those lines).

A rambling, occasional, rootin’, tootin’, calf-ropin’ series about writers who use Texas and Dallas clichés in their pieces.
