In case you missed it, we’ve been doing this Readers’ Choice contest about your favorite places in town. For more info, click here.
Voting was supposed to end on Friday, Aug. 17, but then I realized that hey, I hadn’t really specified that in the story. Uh, whoops! My bad. (A PDF with all of the rules was added at one point, which leaves the date discretion up to me, thankfully.)
From the above linked hub article, you can find all of the various categories. Through a couple weeks voting, some general notes:
- People like breakfast and pizza and food in general. “Best Pizza” has 17 comments, burgers has five comments, and breakfast has 25 comments.
- No, seriously, breakfast is popular. The breakfast contest also leads all the other categories with 174 votes.
- People are lukewarm on this whole “kids” thing. We’ve got 13 comments for best daycare, but only 26 votes cast.
- Music is so 2000-and-late. The least popular categories? Best musical act and best place to dance. Humorously, for the musical act, “I don’t know!” is in second place, which in reflection, is a good meta-name for a band. Best bicycle spot is also feeling a bit of neglect, unfortunate for Queen.
So yeah, vote today! And if you’ve already cast your votes, tell a friend!
After winners are announced on Tuesday, we’ll probably start another round in the future, and I’ve already gotten requests for categories – Best Sports Rehab and Best Car Wash. But if you have other requests, feel free to leave a comment on here or e-mail me at Stephen.firstname.lastname@example.org!
