Bloody Marys are hugely popular in the morning pass-through town pubs. Had to have me one at Pete & Shorty’s in Clarksville on R-XXXVIII along with one of their ribeye steaks… at 8 ‘o clock in the morning.
The only thing I could derive out of your post, brama, is that you’re name calling Greece. I don’t know if there are any bicyclists there planning on riding Ragbrai. If there is, I really hope they don’t see your comment.
RN: The article was about Greek scientists comparing the recovery rates of people who drank tomato juice after a workout to those who drank energy drinks (Monster, Red Bull, etc) after a workout. That’s a no-brainer that the thing filled with caffeine and taurine, which are diuretics, isn’t going to be as beneficial as drinking something that is mainly water and is not a diuretic.
Ragbrai Nation: I still have fond memories of the Bloody Mary and ribeye steak sandwich I enjoyed at Pete & Shorty’s during RAGBRAI 2010!! It hit the spot! Alas, I sadly lost the “I Like to Pee Outside” coozie I bought there. We need to go back to Clarksville.
