Cheese curds: The lifeblood of Wisconsin.
In no other state can you order cheese curds and be presented with a basket of fried, melty deliciousness. Madisonians seem particularly drawn to the siren song of hot cheese emanating from every bar’s menu. It’s just who we are.
The Bozho wants to find our city’s best curds, but we request your help. We’re devising a competition bracket — like the NCAA tourney, but edible — made up of 32 of our favorite spots for curds in Madison. In the coming days, you’ll be able to vote for your favorites until just one champion remains.
The “Curdy Thirty(Two)” will commence this Monday, May 8. New rounds will begin on Mondays and Thursdays until the winner is announced on Thursday, May 25. Your votes will determine who moves on, unless we notice something fishy with the voting, in which case we’ll step in. No one likes fishy curds, so no bots allowed.
Which establishments do you hope make the field? Is there an underrated spot that you love? Let your opinions be heard this weekend via the comments below or on social media. Our official hashtag is #madcurdbracket.
