2015 Lawrence Restaurant Bracket Sweet 16: Papa Keno's vs Flamingo

(5) Papa Keno's vs. (16) Flamingo

The Gilbert Brown region has been full of upsets, and Papa Keno's suddenly finds itself in the driver's seat as a 5 seed, with just a 16, 10, and 11 seed left standing in their way.  They impressively dispatched of 4-seed La Parilla in the Round of 32 by taking 63% of the vote.  I can't argue with their advance so far; if you have also tried The Works (no black olives) with a side of garlic mozzarella breadsticks, you probably wouldn't either.

The Flamingo just keeps on winning.  We originally included them in the bracket somewhat tongue-in-cheek, since I had technically actually eaten there a couple of times, and the food was actually decent for a strip club.... and now they have knocked off Johnny's and Marisco's.  I don't know what else to tell ya.  This is turning into shades of 2011 VCU right now.  Debatable that they even got selected for the First Four.... and they ended up going to the Final Four.  (Sorry to have to bring up that team and year, but the analogy fit too well.)
