Announcing the Campus Region of TDG's Twin Cities Food Bracket

New, 47 comments

Here are the 16 venues that will battle it out for campus area supremacy.

First off, I just want to thank everyone for all of their nominations for TDG's first ever Twin Cities Food Bracket. The response was much better than I could have hoped for and I was excited to see how many people say they were looking forward to this. I'm also looking forward to killing some time this off-season voting for and discussing good places to eat.

The first Region we're ready to announce was an important one for us. We're a Minnesota Gophers centric blog, so it only made sense that inaugural region we released focused on food served by campus. Here's what the final bracket and a list of the matchups for the Campus nominations:

Campus Region

#1 Big Ten Restaurant (Preview) vs. #16 Wally's (Preview)

#2 Al's Breakfast (Preview) vs. #15 Hong Kong Noodle (Preview)

#3 Republic (Preview) vs. #14 Burrito Loco (Preview)

#4 Mesa Pizza (Preview) vs. #13 Annie's Parlour (Preview)

#5 Town Hall Brewery (Preview) vs. #12 Bun Mi (Preview)

#6 Bona (Preview) vs. #11 Manning's Cafe (Preview)

#7 Wienery (Preview) vs. #10 Vescio's (Preview)

#8 My Burger (Preview) vs. #9 Stub & Herbs (Preview)

NOTE: If you're unfamiliar with a location we've included short preview capsules for every venue.

Seeding was accomplished by a unnamed group within the TDG staff. Someone is going to hate it. To that the unnamed writers would like to shrug and blame Gopher Nation. We're working to finish up the other regions right now (these were much harder than anticipated). Once we announce those we'll schedule the voting windows. You won't want to miss it, so stay tuned to TDG!
