I can tell you one thing … the battles (er, polls) today are going to very, very brutal. Oh, and so fun to watch! I’ll be stopping back to see them over and over, I’m sure.
Why? Well, take a look at this string of numbers …
32, 25, 24, 22, 21, 21, 21, 20, 20, 20, 19, 16, 16, 14, 14, 9
These are the 1st Round vote totals for our “Sweet Sixteen” restaurants. And, what’s your point, Bob, you ask?
Drop off the top and bottom competitors. Fifteenth-place is only separated from second-place by 11 votes. Not impressed? Eleventh-place is only 6 votes out of second. Oh, OK, then. Fourth through eleventh are a virtual dead heat!
Like I said, I smell an exciting day of voting today. It’s anybody’s game!
Let’s get on with it, then! VOTE for ONE Table Service in each of the four groups below. The Top 2 finishers in each group will move on to Round 3!
