Rochester Food Brackets – Here’s How To Cast Your Votes
Trent Jones is quickly becoming a well-known name in the Rochester Food World. His love for food and rating food led to creating Rochester's Food Brackets on Spotted In Rochester and the tournament of deliciousness is on!
Wait, Did You Say Rochester Food Brackets?
Yes, yes I did say Rochester Food Brackets. As you can see in the image above, it's like March Madness, but instead of basketballs and sweaty smelly basketball courts, the playing field is our pallets and sense of adventure.
"I've always loved to rate food, does that make sense? Like, with my wife, I try to think of the Top Five Places I've eaten since I moved here to Rochester," said Trent Jones on the Y-105FM Early Morning Show with James Rabe. He had the idea to do it on Spotted In Rochester and when he posted about the idea, it just took off and the brackets were born.
The rules were simple, no chains, just local restaurants.
There Are Some Unusual Matchups!
Did Trent create the matchups? "Yeah," he laughs, "I'm trying to tell people, I just put into this bracket generator. I could have probably gone farther and made different regions of different varieties of bar and grill region or a fine dining region. But then I was like, you know, I don't have that much time. This is just a fun thing."
It IS just a fun thing, so when you vote, please, don't be rude or demand changes. If you do want to take part in the poll, you'll have to keep an eye on Spotted in Rochester. It's a volunteer-run page and they approve posts when they can, so there's not a specific time you'll see the polls go up. But when they do, they look like this:
