Palo Alto Weekly readers have great taste, and that's why we seek their expertise every summer as we search for the best the city has to offer. From book stores to bakeries, boutiques to body shops, readers get to single out the best restaurants, retailers, services, places to have fun and more through the Best Of Palo Alto contest.
Easy online voting opened Friday, April 25, and winning businesses will be announced in July. To find the online ballot, go to www.PaloAltoOnline.com/best_of.
By participating, readers have their own chance to win a prize. People who vote for at least five categories and then respond to a confirmation email, activating their ballot, will be entered into the prize drawing. Prize winners will be contacted via email after voting ends.
Voting will close at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, June 1.
Readers who don't find their favorite businesses in the Best Of drop-down menus can submit them as write-in votes. Write-in votes help new retailers and service providers qualify for next year's ballot.
