Every March, people are always filling out brackets for a chance at a grand prize. Most of the time, it's all about college basketball. In past years, we've been all about the bands when it comes to madness, but this year, we've decided to switch gears and focus on something else we love.... BARS.

It's time to introduce CYY's first annual Bar-ch Madness!

It's a chance for you to nominate your favorite bar in Maine, and then vote that bar all the way until they are crowned champion. If your bar does win it all, you'll be qualified to score a pair of tickets to see Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, Three Days and more on the Bangor waterfront this summer.

So how does this all work? Well, through Sunday, March 24th at 11:59pm you can nominate your bar here:

Starting on March 25th, we'll post the brackets at WCYY.com as well as through our mobile app, and you'll be able to vote on every matchup immediately.


ROUND 1 VOTING: March 25th through March 28th

ROUND 2 VOTING: March 29th through April 1st

ROUND 3 VOTING: April 2nd through April 4th

FINAL ROUND VOTING: April 5th through noon April 8

We'll announce the winning bar as well as the ticket winner on Monday, April 8th.

So tell us what bar you love, whether it's a dive, high-end, or somewhere in between. It's CYY's Bar-ch Madness!
