The second Region we're ready to announce features restaurants from the smaller of our Twin Cities. But don't for a second think there is less quality in St. Paul than across the river. St. Paul can bring the heat. Most notably are several world class burger places that call the east side of the river home. Who will make it all the way out of this stacked region? Here's a list of the matchups for the St. Paul nominations:
PLAY IN ROUND:
#13 Moscow on the Hill vs #20 Khyber Pass Cafe
#14 Saint Dinette vs #19 Louisiana Cafe
#15 Barrio vs #18 Good Day Cafe
#16 Muffuletta vs #17 Cafe Latte
#1 Happy Gnome vs. Mufaletta/ Cafe Latte
#2 Blue Door Pub vs. Barrio/Good Day Cafe
#3 Red Cow vs. Saint Dinette/Louisiana Cafe
#4 Muddy Pig vs. Moscow on the Hill/Khyber Pass
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.
The last two brackets will be announced Friday and Monday with voting in the play-in games to begin on Tuesday. So stay tuned and get ready to vote....finally.
