Downtown Madness FINAL ROUND Voting Now Open

Welcome back to Downtown Madness – the Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin’s exciting new interactive promotion for the entire month of March and first week of April pitting downtown Elgin's restaurants and bars in a head-to-head bracket tournament, similar to the NCAA’s March Madness, where the public’s votes determine the winners.

The voting action has been fierce throughout the first two rounds of competition and our third round voting totals topped the 500 mark! Our "fine four" have been pared to the last two teams standing. Here are the Final Results from the Third Round of Downtown Madness:

- Elgin Public House's Pulled Pork defeats Al's Cafe's Burns Malt by 63

- Bangkok House & Shanghai Restaurant's Pa-Naeng defeats Villa Verone's Asparagi by 96

We now unveil the last two teams standing in our winner-take-all FINAL ROUND of Downtown Madness:

- Elgin Public House's Pulled Pork vs. Bangkok House & Shanghai Restaurant's Pa-Naeng

Final Round voting in Downtown Madness is now open and concludes Tuesday, April 5 at Noon. Subscribers to the DNA’s Downtown Neighborhood News Top 10 weekly e-blast will receive the link to the Final Round Voting Form in Wednesday’s edition of the DNN.

Voters can also visit, "Like" us on Facebook at or just CLICK HERE to access the Final Round Voting Form.

Voting is limited to one vote per e-mail address and you must vote for one of the two entries in the final match-up!
