Denver, CO: Hashtag

As social media savvy as we are at Out For Bloodies, we couldn’t resist stopping at a place called Hashtag for brunch while in Denver. And of course, that gave us a great excuse to try out a new Bloody Mary.

Spice & Mix: House mix with Frank’s Red Hot & Guard & Grace seasoning

Fixin’s: Celery and olives

Chaser: None offered.

Price: $8.50

Hash has three Bloodies on its menu. Prior to our arrival, we had done our research and we were pleased to see some splashy bloodies with various fixin’s in photos on Yelp, so we were excited to see what this place had to offer.

Unfortunately, we were disappointed as we received a pretty bland tasting bloody with standard garnish.

The decor was cute, but they could’ve leaned into the whole “#Hashtag” thing even more, in my opinion. (I’m told the restaurant name is actually a play on breakfast “hash” and the chef’s other restaurant called “Tag.”)

As you can see from the photo below, the portions are enormous, but I still felt the experience was a bit overpriced.

I really, really wanted to love this spot, but instead I found it to be just “okay.” Nothing bad by any means, but nothing amazing either. I don’t think I’d necessarily make the effort to go back when there are so many other places to be tried.  #Sorry

The verdict: A little pricey, but so was the cuisine (not atypical for San Francisco, however). I wouldn’t go out of my way to come back here again for the Bloody Mary but it’s a cute spot with good food and I might recommend it if you’re in the area.

 

Our next stop was to Denver, Colorado, which brought us the chance to try another airport Bloody Mary. This time from Rock Bottom Brewery.

MIX: Unsure, but we did see the bartender add some spices on her own

CHASER: None offered

FIXIN’S: Celery, lime, lime, olive

PRICE: $8.49

This Bloody Mary was decent, but pretty standard. Basically, what you would expect from a chain.
