Basketball is a big deal in Lawrence, Kansas. So much so that they even have a town-favorite dish named after the basketball coach.
At 23rd Street Brewery, they serve "Bill Self Pasta."
Matt Llewellyn, managing partner at the brewery, doesn’t have scientific polls to prove it but says this about the Bill Self pasta: “It’s probably the most ordered dish in Lawrence, Kansas.” Making up 7 percent or so of the busy brewery’s total sales, he said, this dish features fiery-hot buffalo fried chicken tenders over creamy big-shell mac ‘n’ cheese. It can only help to be named after Kansas University’s beloved, national championship-winning men’s basketball coach Bill Self. (SOURCE)
So, we ordered this pasta, and I also tried the "Biera Cranberry Sour," which is named for the Celtic goddess of winter this kettle soured ale is brewed with fresh Cara Cara orange peel and cranberries.
This pasta - "An amazing dish inspired by our amazing coach! Our made from scratch mac and cheese baked to perfection and topped with buffalo chicken tenders."
Wow, those giant shells are full of deliciously cheesy cheese and topped with spicy buffalo chicken.
