I spent most of the day yesterday flipping between the Food Network and NCAA Basketball bracket talk. That probably explains the genesis of the latest brain child of Jack & John in the Morning. Given that food often evokes such passionate debate on this show, and that we love to sing the praises of all of the cool, unique things our town brings to the table, we decided we’re going to match up the best signature food items Lincoln businesses have to offer, March Madness bracket-style.
So, starting tomorrow (Wednesday) at 7:35, we’re going to look to fill up the field with 32 entries. John and I make up the selection committee, so it’s your job to convince us that your favorite deserves an invite to our version of the big dance (or should it be called ‘The Big Pants’). We’ve got four regions: Entrees, Side Items, Sandwich/Fast Food, and Pizza. Each region will have eight entries, all of which will be determined with your input tomorrow. After that, the voting will commence here on the blog, region by region, until we’re down to the Munch Madness Final Four, which will coincide with the actual men’s and women’s championships.
If you can’t call in tomorrow, shoot us an email to JackandJohn@klin.com or comment below with your nominations.
