2015 Lawrence Restaurant Bracket Sweet 16: 715 vs Dempsey's

(2) 715 vs (3) Dempsey's

After some "upsets", there are only two matchups pitting the 2 and 3 seeds against each other in the entire bracket, and this one almost didn't happen.  715 was neck-and-neck with Biemer's the whole way, and ended up dead even in votes when the polls closed. The selection committee put it to a vote to break the tie, and then that deliberation also came down to the last vote, before 715 finally put Biemer's delicious BBQ to bed.  Some of the best cocktails in town-- as well as my old friend tuna spaghetti - live to fight another day.

Dempsey's, on the other hand, steamrolled Fuzzy's Taco Shop with 82% of the vote.  I figured Dempsey's would win, but was mildly surprised that the young professional/hipster vote dominated the college/just stumbled out of Brother's let's get some tacos brah vote by that big of a margin.  Never underestimate the truffle sauce.
