We're down to the wire in our Chicagoist Best Pizza Bracket, with only two more rounds to go before we crown the best pizza place in the city, as chosen by our readers. Which spots made it to the final four?
Unlike the last round, where there were a bunch of blowouts, the contests in this round were relatively close. Flo & Santos just edged out the Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Company, Mi Pi beat Piece by less than 200 votes, and Apart took down Pequod's.
With regards to the final matchup, Stella Barra vs. Roseangela's, things get slightly more complicated. We experienced a slight technical glitch and the polls didn't close right at 10 p.m. during the last round. Now, no contestant was particularly biased or singled out by this, since the polls stayed open for everyone. But because the rules said the contest closed at 10 p.m. (and several very enthusiastic fans sent us screenshots of the polls as of 10:00 p.m.), we're using the results at that time. Which means that Roseangela's actually beat Stella Barra.
Stella Barra, take heart. You have a ton of loyal fans (about 4500 of them in our poll alone. And remember everyone, this is just for fun.
On to the second-to-last round! The polls will end on Friday at 10 p.m.
