Bearcats Friday Winner: MAC's Pizza

Jan. 15, 2010

The University of Cincinnati celebrates this week's Bearcat Friday winner.

The University of Cincinnati Athletic Department developed a way for businesses and campus offices around the country to join in on the fun and show their pride for the University. Bearcats Fridays is scheduled to run throughout the year.

This week's BEARCAT FRIDAY WINNER IS MAC'S PIZZA in Clifton! The BEARCAT mascot visited Mac's Pizza today to deliver UC items to employees wearing red and black.

"Hosting a Bearcat Friday will be a great event for Mac's Pizza," said owner Mac Ryan. "I can't wait to get some great pictures of the Bearcat with some fans to frame to add to our collection on the walls."

Mac's Pizza Pub is located in the heart of Clifton Heights 1/2 block off campus and smack in the middle of all the hospitals. Mac's opened 3 years ago and has been developing an ever-growing fan base and collected a few awards along the way, as well as two expansions. There are 18 TV's including the largest plasma in Clifton. Mac's has over 75 beers to choose from along with great pizzas, burgers, wings, and appetizers. They also have free parking in the rear of the restaurant.
