Downtown Madness Score Central Update - March 9

We're nearly through the halfway point of the Opening Round of Downtown Madness 2012: Downtown vs. Crosstown. The first half competition has been intense across the board. Many teams have had strong performances thus far and get your glass dancing slippers ready because Cinderella stories are taking shape!

Here are the results thru Friday, March 9 at 4PM (actual voting totals will be released after Round 1 is completed on Monday, March 12 at 5PM):


Elgin Public House Turkey Avocado BLT leads Toom Toom Thai Restaurant Nam Tok

Buckinghams Steakhouse Grand Tomahawk leads Villa Verone Gamberi e Casspesante Scampi

Ravenheart Coffee Macadamia Nut White Mocha leads Prairie Rock Grill Prairie Rock Cuban

Prime Burgerhouse Drunken Bull Burger leads Als Cafe Roasted Salmon Mediterranean


Herb's Bakery German Pretzel Roll leads In the Neighborhood Deli Garlic Dijon Chicken Sandwich

Danny's Pizza Sausage & Pepperoni Pizza leads Walnut Speakeasy Ribs

Paul's Family Restaurant Apple Bacon Cheddar Sandwich leads Colonial Cafe Ultimate Grilled Mac & Cheese Melt

Nick's Pizza Nick's Special leads Big Apple Bagels Big Apple Club

This is where the rubber meets the road folks!

If your favorite team is trailing, time to rally the support from friends and family (and their friends and family) to get out and rock the vote.

If your team is leading, don't let off the gas now as no lead is safe in this Big Dance. Empty the bench by telling 10 friends to vote for your team now...and then tell each of them to tell 10 more friends to vote as well!

Bust the brackets and support your favorite Elgin eateries! Round 1 voting concludes Monday, March 12 at 5PM.

Our next Downtown Madness Score Central Update will be Saturday, March 10 at 12PM.
