As part of the inaugural festivities this week, Joan Fairfax will offer Missouri state elected officials . . .
a complimentary . . . Bloody Mary Bagel.
Others may enjoy this latest addition to the Chez Monet Menu for a modest charge. Brainchild of a bored former mayor, this healthy and substantial snack combines the decadence of a toasted bagel and cream cheeze with more responsible components: thin tomato slices, a prominent celery stick and large olive.
It's a dang Bloody Mary on a plate!
