Food. Breakfast burrito bracket down to Final Four.
Despite ballot-box stu≠ing, game marches on
Editor’s Note: The Denver Post created its March Madness breakfast burrito bracket to highlight local restaurants and to have fun. But when it becomes obvious that some people are voting over and over again, it loses the level of fairness necessary to succeed. Please, only vote once per individual per day; we want everything to be fair in love and burritos.
Our eight elite eateries wrapped up in dramatic fashion: No. 3 Little Anita’s narrowly defeated No. 5 Burrito Company and No. 5 Asada Rico barely edged out No. 7 Jalapenos to become two of the last four burritos standing.
The two remaining No. 1 seeds, Santiago’s and Bonfire Burritos, took care of their competition, No. 3 Emilio’s Almost Famous and No. 2 Sam’s No. 3, respectively.
But like any good green chile, the road to get here has been less than smooth. Some might even call it viscous and pork-studded. We observed unusual vote counts and suspicious voting patterns in some of our match-ups. But as we’re knee-deep in chorizo at this point, we’re going to see this through.
We’re reporters, not referees, so while we regret not having the proper software in place to limit votes to one per device, we hope the final rounds can play out as fairly as possible. The only thing we want to see stuffed is our burrito, not the metaphorical ballot box.
As for the the four, be a PTPer (Dickey V. speak for Prime Time Player) and eat, baby!
Asada Rico, a 16th Street Mall cart, has been rolling up mom’s burrito recipe since 2009.
