How We Chose the Bars

In order to find the best bars in Morgantown, we sent out a survey form and received almost 100 suggestions from the WVU community. The criteria was each submission had to be a bar, restaurant, or nightclub that serves alcohol and located within the Morgantown region. We then paired down that list to the top 32 most submitted bars for our bracket contest, and then used a randomizer to choose the matches in each round.
