The largest city Northwest of Chicago. It is home of the Elgin watches, with 11 companies nation-wide. Has 3 public High schools: Elgin High, Larkin High, and Gifford Street High/ Central (for the little bad ass teenagers). Elgin has a community college. People from Elgin/ Elginites, get along very well with people from Carpentersville, Rockford, Bensenville, Waukegan, and Chicago. Now just like any other large city Elgin has a high crime rate. Elgin also has a very nice side of town and a very grimey side of town. Also known as the cutt. In around the 70's gangs started getting big in Elgin. As of now the MLD's "run" Elgin. People might also know Elgin by its nicknames like: Evil~E, HellGin, Da Gin, Da ELG & Da E~Town. Now people who never lived in Elgin should never look down on Elgin. It has upcoming musicians, athletes etc. I will always love Elgin this is my hometown. I'm repping Da Evil~E like a mascot!

to steal, generally opportunistically, that is, to take everything that isn't nailed down as soon as the owner has his/her/its (possibly proverbial) back turned; etymology: Named for the Chicago suburb of Elgin, Illinois (see other entries for "elgin"), part of Illinois' "Coalition of Crime": Aurora, Decatur, East St. Louis, and Elgin.
Loquo: We left the hotel with more bags of sh*t than we came in with. The cleaning lady came in, and the room was already clean. LOL, man we elgin-ed everything!

DP: Did you elgin the free towels down at the pool?

Loquo: Naw, man, I forgot. Next time, though!

DP: Man, I wheeled the whole cart outside; threw it in the truck; passed out towels like beers, when I got back to campus.

A: Right on, dog!

Small obscure rural town located near South Carolina's capital city of Columbia punctuated by random single-wide trailer homes. The one grocery store is like a gross-you-out food oddity museum for out-of-towners, stocked full with delicious redneck delights such as pork brains, pork snouts, pork tongues, fatback and chitlins in family sized packs. The local social life revolves around the post office as everyone in town stops by for a postage stamp on a daily basis. The town is proud of its history and recently celebrated a centennial and purchased a pretty neat looking town clock. But if you drive through looking for anything historical, you'll be hard pressed to find more than a charming old shack or two.
What's up in Elgin tonight?

Let's go hang out at the post office.
