AT HOME TOURNAMENT
technically, the winner was decided by a final four match-up and the final match was not mathematically necessary. however, the winner gets a $50.00 gift card from the winning restaurant in the tournament. it’s hard to announce a winner without announcing what said winner won. the votes have been tabulated (for a while now) and the winner of the at home tournament is Lady Robin. well done Lady Robin. once the KoF eats at the winning restaurant he’ll pick up a $50.00 gift card at that time and the QoF will make arrangements with you (did i just refer to myself in the 3rd and 2nd person?). condolences to Sir Aaron The Namecaller who lost by but a smidge.
THE WINNING RESTAURANT
