Philadelphia magazine using bracket to determine city’s best burger

    Ever wonder how Philadelphia magazine compiles its “best of” list? We’re getting a little peek.

     

    The mag is using a much shorter version of an NCAA-bracket to encourage readers to vote for the city’s best burger.

    Eight places made the list, including relative new-comers like PYT and the old standby, Good Dog. Your vote also enters you for a chance to win an invite to the Best of Philly party.

    Sounds like fun, but shouldn’t these ratings be based on, um, taste, and not the proximity of a place to the voting majority?
