Downtown Madness Score Central Update: April 1, 9am

ScoreCentral_LogoWe have some bad news to report: The voting pace in Round 4 of Downtown Madness: Downtown vs. Crosstown has been so intense that our Madness voting servers have crashed and we have to start the voting all over again from the beginning…


And if you believe that check the date on your calendar: APRIL FOOL’S! 🙂

Seriously though, there’s only 3 hours to go in our “FINE FOUR” round of voting. What are you waiting for? Take me to your leaders…

Here are the voting totals thru Monday, April 1 at 9am:


Danny’s Pizza on Douglas Sausage Pizza leads Ravenheart Coffee Cake Batter Cocoa by 181


Wienerville III Bacon Burrito Dog leads Paul’s Family Restaurant Paninis by 31

Don’t be a fool! Rally the troops and get behind your favorite Elgin eatery NOW before the “FINE FOUR” is history. Only a few hours left to tell your friends, neighbors, co-workers and colleagues to VOTE NOW! Get in the game! Do it! Do it NOW!

Round 4 voting ends Monday, April 1 at Noon. Join the Madness in Elgin at

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.

DNA’s #TasteNTweet events (or #TNT as they’ve affectionately become known as) combines the best elements of the social mixer blended with just the right amount of social media engagement into a dynamite evening of tasting, tweeting and talking. Whether you’re a social media newbie or a Tweeting, Yelping and Facebooking fool, if you enjoy socializing with great company over great food join us for #TNT in downtown Elgin on April 8 at 4:30pm followed immediately by the presentation of the Championship Trophy to our 2013 Downtown Madness champion at 6pm.

This will be our last Score Central Update of Round 4. At Noon today, votes will be tabulated and voting e-mail addresses verified. The finalists in both the Downtown and Crosstown side of the brackets will then be announced later today.

Join the Madness!
