Delray and West Palm/Lake Worth Square Off in Our Food Town Throwdown Finals

foodbracket small.jpg
The champions of our Food Town Throwdown contest to see which local city has the best dining scene has reached the final round. It's Delray Beach versus West Palm Beach/Lake Worth in our final showdown. The winner here earns the rights to talk smack, brag, and generally boast that its city has the fairest food scene in the land.

Before the voting begins, here's a breakdown of last week's results:

West Palm Beach/Lake Worth: 453 votes
Western Broward County: 251 votes

All the great ethnic dining of Western Broward just couldn't compete with the glitz of Clematis, chains of CityPlace, and authenticity of downtown Lake Worth. West Palm and Lake Worth now go against Delray Beach, the city that was our number-one seed at the beginning of this contest and brought in more votes than any other city.

Delray Beach: 1,007 votes
Fort Lauderdale: 154 votes

Fort Lauderdale may be the biggest South Florida city north of Miami, but that didn't stop it from getting trounced by Delray. Atlantic Avenue's hopping dining scene now squares off against its neighbors to the north.

The idea here is to tell your friends and get people involved, So it's good for both towns for people to talk about it... Heck this way both towns get more people coming out during the day and night to do things, or if you want stay inside and play your xbox and offer nothing to the rest of the world by noticing there is other places to go and experience..

 If someone were voting for, say, Green Acres to win, I'd be concerned. But truth be told, the winners so far have all been smart picks.

 It's comments like these that really bring the conversation to a new level, @4a6b8caab9833d3be69ee73e2563e30c:disqus. Of course, you did that already with your pseudonym.
