Welcome back to the round of 32! The votes have been cast and we’re bidding farewell to 32 bites and beverages, including fried okra (sigh) and coconut cake. I’m happy to report pecan pie and sweet tea both made it through along with my beloved pimento cheese. Although I have to admit that picking between butter beans and pimento cheese so early in the voting seemed unfair.

As with any good march tournament, we had a few upsets and the 7/10 match-ups were quite contentious again this year, with watermelon, pound cake and Coca-Cola emerging victorious as 10 seeds. Sadly, pralines (my gran makes the best pecan pralines in Dixie) didn’t make it through to the next round, but it’s leaving us with a battle of the Southern donuts this week: beignets vs. Krispy Kreme.

Here’s how our bracket’s looking now:

I’m dying to know? Did you learn anything new about your beau oo best friends? I learned that the SW office is loyal to Southern sweets. Marissa is rooting hard for banana pudding and Amber picked Red Velvet Cake to go all the way, which should be interesting since these treats go head-to-head in the Round of 32. Share what you learned, and what you’re pulling for, in the comments below! Second-round voting will be open until March 17th.

While SEC football gets a lot of attention when it comes to wedding planning, the SW office is located in the heart of ACC Basketball country. So it’s pretty easy to see how March Madness takes over the office around this time every year, especially with an office full of Tar Heel Alums! While might not all agree on which basketball team to cheer for (ahem, Emily Thomas), we all agree that this time of year should be celebrated in high style: welcome to Mason-Dixon Madness 2017—a Southern food tournament!

This year, our tournament begins with 64 of the best and brightest Southern food favorites, divided by course so that fried chicken doesn’t go head-to-head with mac and cheese in the first round. Each week, y’all will get the chance to weigh in on your favorite Southern delicacies until we whittle things down to the championship match-up on April 3rd!

Will there be some upsets in the first round? Will Cheerwine be take home the crown again or will my beloved sweet tea reign victorious? Need to brush up your Southern delicacies? Check out our past Southern Delicacy columns or call your mama. Educate yourself on Goo Goo Clusters and chow chow. First round voting will be open until March 12 when we’ll set the winners up for the round of 32!

Invite your beau and your best gals to join you and help us decide what will ultimately be named the best bite or beverage in Dixie! Take a break from wedding planning and spend some quality time with your favorite people debating the finer points of pecan pie and banana pudding (my darling KPW considers himself an expert on both). Good chance you might learn a thing or two about your friends and family in the process.

Vote in the first round of 64 below!

Feel free to print your own bracket (download it here), fill in your favorites and see if you can pick our 2017 champion. I will be rooting hard for sweet tea and mac and cheese ;) May the best food (or drink) win!
