Kroll's and Reggies Win March Madness Bar Bracket

Last week we posted about a promotion by Heineken Light where various Chicagoland bars were pitted against each other in a sixteen bracket showdown (in honor of the Men's NCAA Basketball Tournament).

To the amazement of some, Kroll's (1736 S. Michigan) and Reggies (2105 S. State) pulled out victories:

As a result both bars will be hosting back-to-back events for March madness this week:
Each week, new match ups will be posted and on March 8, the top bar will be crowned the 2010 Heineken Light Super Sixteen Champion. In fact, the two bars with the most votes will host back-to-back Waddle & Silvy live broadcasts on March 18 and 19 to kick off the Tournament.

Although it seems hard to fathom that both of our great (but much more low key) bars, could beat out the likes of two wildly popular bars in Chicago (McFadden's in the Gold Coast & Glascott's in Lincoln Park), it's great to see them win. We're all for supporting local establishments so it's great to see two solid spots in the Sloop get some publicity and support.

At Reggies right now (yes free wi-fi), it's 12pm and it is busy. From 9-11am while Waddle & Silvy were here, it was a good crowd and it has stayed crowded. Thanks for supporting our local est.
