Let's Play Two: Elgin's Crosstown Classic Challenge Begins June 20

Beginning Monday, June 20, in honor of the first Chicago crosstown series of the season, our 2011 Downtown Madness Champion, Elgin Public House's Pulled Pork, will put downtown pride on the line against our crosstown neighbor, In The Neighborhood Deli and their Pulled Pork, in our newest social media promotion: Elgin's Crosstown Classic Challenge - Presented by Van Galder Bus Company.

All next week, we are asking Facebook fans to step up to the plate and get behind their "team" by casting their vote for their favorite on the DNA's Facebook page. Here's how to participate:

1.) You must "LIKE" the Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin IL Facebook Page and encourage friends and other loyal Pulled Pork supporters to do so as well.

2.) Post one of the following messages on DNA's wall: "I love EPH's Pulled Pork" or "I love ITN Deli's Pulled Pork". Only one vote per screen name.


If you are not a Facebook user, we invite you to vote through our Crosstown Classic Challenge Online Voting Form, which will be available Monday, June 20 at Only one vote per e-mail address.

The winner of the Crosstown Classic Challenge will not only have bragging rights but will also have the choice of which dish both restaurants will prepare and sample at the Crosstown Classic Challenge Cook-Off on Thursday, July 14 at the Downtown Elgin Harvest Market.

The best part is when your team wins, you could be a winner too! At the conclusion of the promotion, we will draw a name at random from all of the voters on the "winning team" and that lucky person will receive two tickets to the Chicago White Sox vs. Boston Red Sox game on Saturday, July 30 at U.S. Cellular Field - courtesy of our presenting sponsor, Van Galder Bus Company.

Tune in to the Chef Jeff & Jeff Show on WRMN-AM 1410 on Tuesday, June 21 beginning at 9AM for our first Crosstown Classic Challenge scoring update. Then tune in again on Tuesday, June 28 at 9AM for the announcement of the winning team as well as the winner of the baseball tickets!

Again, voting begins Monday so if you have not done so already, please "LIKE" the DNA Facebook page and then post your vote on our wall beginning Monday, June 20.

We also encourage you to "Like" Elgin Public House, In the Neighborhood Deli and Van Galder Bus Company's Facebook pages as well:
