The new eatery's name is nigh: the Final Four face off
RELEASED: March 27, 2008
DANVILLE—When their numbers had been cut to 16, the remaining names rejoiced only momentarily, for as quickly as the first round ended, the second began with the stakes growing higher and the votes more numerous. Now, only four advance to the third and final round of voting, beginning Thursday, March 27 and extending on through two weeks until the Wednesday, April 9 deadline at midnight. The winning entry in the "Name the New Eatery" contest will be announced at the Centre College Campus Center groundbreaking ceremony at 12:45 p.m. on Friday, April 11 in front of Cowan Dining Commons.
The "Final Four," in alphabetical order, are as follows: Chowan, Colonel Commons, Epicentre and The Tracks.
And now for a look at a few of the names that, despite the noblest of efforts, could not rise to the top:
Coming in at No. 8, "C6 cH0w" never made it to the end zone. The train simply bypassed the "The Depot" at No. 7, while the alliteration of "Colonel Corner" proved too much for many tastes at No. 6. And again, another entry failing to advance to the next round by only two votes, "The Box," received a K.O. to come in at No. 5.
The winner of the contest will be awarded a one-year subscription to unlimited Netflix DVD rental service with two DVDs at a time (along with seeing his or her entry emblazoned on the side of the new eatery in neon lights…or something similar but equally cool). Additionally, a permanent plaque will be installed in the building for future generations to view. Second place will receive a one-year subscription to Netflix, as well, but with only one DVD at a time. And finally, third- and fourth-place will be sent home with a six-month subscription to Netflix, one DVD at a time.
Stay tuned for the crowning of the "Eatery Madness" champion!
