The battle for our sacred fake trophy and a year's worth of glory has come down to a friendly face-off between neighbors. Who should win the exalted Curbed Cup 2012 — last year's champion, Inman Park, or the top seed and leading nominations getter, Old Fourth Ward? Here's the deal: Voting is open until noon on Jan. 2. One vote per IP address. So tell your neighbors, and let the final elimination begin!
A QUICK RECAP:
In Curbed Cup 2012's first round, reigning champion Inman Park (3) dropped a roundhouse (65 percent of votes) on its cosmopolitan cousin, Midtown, in a contest we thought would be closer. In the semi-finals, Inman Park snatched 72 percent of votes and pounded its neighbor Poncey-Highland (2). Again, a bigger margin than expected.
Scrappy Cabbagetown (8) waged a good fight (33 percent of votes) but powerhouse Old Fourth Ward (1) marched on last week, after garnering an uncanny amount of pre-tourney nominations. The next contest saw Decatur (5) also fall to O4W, gathering less of a voting percentage (32) than Cabbagetown.
Could the O4W's heralded transformation into a living/dining/partying hotspot catapult it to glory this year? Or will famously tight-knit Inman Parkers again reign supreme? Vote now!
