A restaurant draft is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. The Bills had their bye week last Sunday, so my brothers and I decided to use the free time to finally set this thing up and lay the ground rules for the draft.
If you listen to WGR you may be familiar with Schopp and the Bulldog’s actor draft and food draft. This one will run similarly. We will take turns going around the table selecting restaurants, and it will run much like a fantasy football draft.
The difference between WGR’s drafts and this draft though is that we have “positions” to fill. While the talk show draftees just tried to assemble an all-star team, competitors in this draft will need to round out their rosters with restaurants from several major categories.
Here’s what we came up with:
Did you ever play Yahtzee? That’s what the chance category is. If you want to think of it in terms of fantasy football, that’s your flex spot.
We still haven’t decided how many of each position you will need yet. However, it seems logical to allot for more Italian restaurants than buffets, for example.
I’m positive there will be some gray areas and conflicts that will arise once we begin the draft. When a debate arises, we will discuss it on the spot. That’s the only way to do it; we can’t foresee every problem.
Feel free to comment below and add a suggestion, any help is good help. The draftees are currently myself and my brothers, but if you would like to join in the draft we could consider adding more teams.
Stay tuned for more info. This is going to be awesome.
