Downtown Madness Score Central Update: March 29, 5pm

ScoreCentral_LogoFirst there was our Downtown Madness 2013: Downtown vs. Crosstown Field of 32. Then came the Elgin “Eat 16” followed shortly thereafter by the Elgin “Elite ATE”. And then there were four: the “FINE FOUR” in Round 4 of Downtown Madness and things are just getting cooking!

Let’s take a look now at the voting totals thru Friday, March 29 at 5pm:


Danny’s Pizza on Douglas Sausage Pizza leads Ravenheart Coffee Cake Batter Cocoa by 29


Paul’s Family Restaurant Paninis leads Wienerville III Bacon Burrito Dog by 39

Our voting public has the right…no, the privilege…to select which of these fearsome foursome earns the honor to represent Downtown and “Crosstown” Elgin in the Downtown Madness Championship Round of Voting which begins April 6. Not a responsibility to be taken lightly for sure. Either go big or go home people! Tell your friends, neighbors, co-workers and even total strangers to shoot the lights out in the Downtown Madness voting booth and pull for your favorite teams all weekend long!

Eat16_Front_adDon’t forget now thru April 8, voters can pick up Elgin Eat 16 punch cards at any of the 32 participating Downtown Madness eateries and obtain punches for trying the various “signature dishes”. 8 punches nets you a Downtown Madness mini basketball. 16 punches = a trip to the foul line for your shot at big prizes at the Downtown Madness Trophy Presentation and #TasteNTweet on April 8 at Danny’s Pizza on Douglas (our 2012 Downtown Madness defending champions), 231 Douglas Avenue in downtown Elgin.
