We've completed the voting for the second of our 4 regions. You've spoken and we now know the 8 Maroon Region food venues that are headed to the Second Round.
#1 Revival vs. #16 Brit's Pub
Revival wins a traditional 1 vs 16 game, pulling away late to cruise to victory.
#2 Matt's Bar vs. #15 Be'Wiched
You thought Republic and BLoco was a close contest? Matt's one ups them with a 1 VOTE WIN.
#3 Surly Beer Hall vs. #14 Edina Grill
People love them some Surly!
#4 Hell's Kitchen vs. #13 Sea Salt
I guess breakfast isn't the most important meal of the day when it comes to a food bracket as Hell's Kitchen becomes the second straight #4 seed to fall to the #13.
#5 The Freehouse vs. #12 Monte Carlo
Monte Carlo pulls off the first traditional 12 over 5 upset of the bracket, upsetting The Freehouse.
#6 Hola Arepa vs. #11 Emily's Lebanese Deli
Hola Arepa cruises past Emily's to advance to the Second Round.
#7 5-8 Club vs. #10 George and the Dragon
5-8's Lucy/Sally burger combo was not enough to withstand the power of the Dragon.
#8 Anchor Fish and Chips vs. #9 Kramarczuk's
Sausage defeats fish & chips!
