#1 bloody mary…Galena, Illinois–

IMG_3624 IMG_3621 IMG_3618 IMG_3617BAM!  Here it is, the number one bloody mary in all of Galena, Illinois can be had at a place called the Victory Cafe located on Main Street right smack dab in the center of town. . .mmm, aaaahh!  This baby is loaded with spicy bloody mary mix, peppers, pickles, an olive, celery, a slice of sausage, AND a totally delectable crispy strip of bacon. . .damn, this thing is good–easily the best bloody in this entire quaint and delightful little town.

Galena, Illinois is known as a spot that Abraham Lincoln hung out in a bit–he gave a speech from the balcony of our hotel here back in 1855 or so. . .Stephen Douglas gave a speech here in around 1856. . .and U.S. Grant had his presidential campaign headquarters here back in 1868. . .wow!  So much history and sooo little time to soak it up. . .this is why we are hitting the Victory Cafe–we need fuel to fully appreciate all that has happened and that is happening in Galena. . .what better fuel is there than bloody marys and all-day breakfast?  None.  You know I loves me some bloodys and all-day breakfast, and I am a happy boy here. . .jaaaa!!

If you ever make your way through these parts, then I highly recommend a visit to the Victory Cafe in Galena, Illinois. . .you will love it–I gar-ron-taaaayy!
