Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Braun have a lot in common and have developed a friendship because of it. They’re both star athletes in Wisconsin, from California, and they each won MVP awards last year. Rodgers defended Braun when the failed drug test first came out, and he told MLB to eat crow after Braun won his appeal. Now the two are opening a restaurant in Brookfield, Wisc. together — Braun’s second restaurant.
According to a press release, the restaurant will be called “8*twelve” and it’s expected to open in late June.
“8*twelve will offer American cuisine including many family favorites as well as steaks and seafood. Executive Chef Aaron Patin designed the menu, creating items that will offer an extra zest of flavor by being prepared in the wood fire grill, a center point of the kitchen. Fans of both players will see memorabilia in the bar area, which will also include numerous big-screen televisions to catch sporting events.”
Both players are expected to make scheduled and unscheduled appearances at the restaurant, which they say is another way to connect with the sports fans of Wisconsin. With both of their names attached, I have to imagine it will be pretty successful.
