The Dick's corner was acknowledged as the hottest bracket section in the first round, but there's now an internecine fight brewing in West Seattle, where neighbors Jak's Grill and Ma'Ono are locked in a struggle for burger supremacy.
And, speaking of burgers to the west: Zippy's fans, who are apparently as lunkheaded as they are loyal, will note that their favorite joint is still not included in the bracket. That's because -- as explained in the overview post and in the comments section of almost every post thereafter -- this competition is limited to in-city contenders. But because we here at Voracious aim to please, our final blind tasting will include Zippy's burgers alongside the top four finalists. Zippy's isn't eligible to win, place or show, but we'll share the results for comparison purposes.
Use this weekend to study the updated bracket. Eat burgers. Evaluate juiciness. Analyze buns. Because the fun restarts on Monday morning, with the first match-up in the Battle's second round. Don't forget to vote.
