If the words "Sunday morning" make you think of a hangover, then you'll be as excited as we are about the bloody Mary contest at Scala's Bistro, where eight S.F. bartenders will battle it out for the title of Best Bloody Mary.

The event will celebrate the launch of Scala's new brunch menu, which will include the tasty-looking "Biestwich" -- pork belly, avocado, vegetable aoili, and greens on ciabatta ($12). Hit the jump for the rest of the details.

The contest will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on August 28. Tickets are $10 in advance and $20 at the door, which includes a taste of all eight drinks and samples from the new brunch menu. Proceeds will benefit the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture. And in case you aren't convinced yet, here are the competing bartenders:

Scott Baird, Bon Vivants

Bret Sylvester, Otis Lounge

Dan Smith, Good Gracious! Events

Jason "Buffalo" Lograsso, Cotogna

Matthew Harrison, Delarosa

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
