The new restaurant will be called 8*twelve -- a direct reference to the two players' numbers. It will be located on Bluemound Rd. just west of Calhoun.

8*twelve is expected to offer American cuisine including steaks and seafood. Fans of both players will also see memorabilia in the bar area, which will also include big-screen televisions.

Both Braun and Rodgers helped develop the concept for 8*twelve. Guests of the restaurant can expect to see both players make scheduled and unscheduled appearances throughout the year.

Plans for additional locations of 8*twelve are being considered.
