The first-ever RCT Lawrence Restaurant bracket concluded yesterday and we have the winner - The Roost!
The Roost knocked off fellow finalist Sandwich Bowl 1824 to 1585, or 54% of the vote. Not the closest matchup we saw during the bracket, but still a close one. Of course the championship was a pair of restaurants I have not been to; I'll be sure to rectify that this fall during football season. Besides, I'm sure I'll need something to take my mind off the games...
Anyway, it was a fun way to burn a few weeks during the middle of summer. You can agree or disagree with the results as much as you like; I for one will be trying a few more restaurants on my trips back to Lawrence. Thanks to the restaurants themselves for joining in on social media and to all of you, dear readers, for following along and casting your votes.
And I don't care what anyone says, I'm never calling a hot dog a sandwich.
"Yes, I'd like to order a sandwich."
"What would you like, sir?"
"A hot dog."
No. That conversation will never happen.
