One reason Danny's pizza won it last year in a landslide victory was due to all his friends on facebook & their friends  & their friends etc, etc.etc. & stated they were all his friends.

Is that right? I don't think so.  But let's face it, I think Paul's deserves to play by the same rules.  And, if the rules states friends - so be it.

    In my opinion; if I was running this March Madness for the best restaurants in Elgin here is what I would have done.  I would have had one ballot (numbered & coded) with all the participating restaurants on it with 3 boxes next to each restaurant marked 1st, 2nd, & 3rd. Each Homeowner would get to mark only 1 box per restaurant & up to 3 restaurants.   I would have enclosed this ballot with the water bill from the city. Cook County 60120 & Kane County 60123.  Check the top three restaurants of your choice & in the order of your choices - 1st, 2nd, & 3rd.  Anything else marked would void the ballot.  Submit the ballot when you pay the water bill Via mail or if you pay on line, the city of Elgin has a mailbox in front of City Hall. - No postage needed. - City picks up mail. Just drop it off.  5Pts for 1st, 4Pts for 2nd, 3Pts for 3rd.  The restaurant with the most points gets top honors, 2nd, & 3rd follow suit. This is what I would consider FAIR.

    Only 1 Problem - they didn't asked me.

      For real good food just call Paul's phone

      Don't eat at Danny's or you'll get a gall stone

       

      Paul will feed ya so much that they'll have to carry ya

      I once ate at Danny's and got a case of malaria

            No, because the rules state that you can ask family, friends, co-workers to Vote.  You can also go to www.facebook.com/downtownelgin and make your selection on which food looks better.  Also; Elgin is a city made up of 2 counties (Cook & Kane Counties) depending where you live.   I have lived in both counties (currently Kane).  And yes, in Cook County that is how things work.  I have a tee shirt that reads " ILLINOIS  WHERE OUR GOVERNORS MAKE OUR LICENSE PLATES "  Sad but true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                          Know exactly where your are talking about. Northwest Hwy & RT 31 (State St in Elgin).  I was just up in that area last week, they open a Harbor Warehouse up there on 14 & I wanted to check it out.

                            No.   But because, I am trying to help Paul's Family Restaurant to Win, they offered me a free breakfest even if they didn't win.

                              My hometown (Elgin, IL) is having a March Madness Contest between to determine the best restaurants in town.  It is now down to the final two restaurants:

                              (1) Paul's Family Restaurant

                              (2) Danny's Pizza

                              My vote is for Paul's Family Restaurant.

                              You can vote for Paul's Family Restaurant at downtown Elgin's website at: www.downtownelgin.com.  (only 1 vote per valid e-mail address).  Voting starts today after 5:00 PM thru Monday 04/08/13 at noon.

                              Here's is my challange:  If Paul's Family Restaurant wins by more than 250 votes, I will post a copy of my excel worksheet to view/download of my main database file of the Powerball game.  This is the main file I use to determine my various Groups in the " Combos & Patterns" file which can be viewed at https://www.box.com/shared/f74qiezh2r

                              Good Luck & Best Wishes To ALL...........................................................

                              Thanks to all that have voted so far.

                              Only 45 hours left to determine the Winner.  I am still hopeful that Paul's Family Restaurant will win.

                              Good Luck & Best Wishes To All............................
