You picked which Palo Alto-area businesses would star here, whether the hands-of-steel chiropractor suitable for getting ailing action heroes back on their feet or the swooniest romantic restaurant for that first-date scene. They're getting their Best Of props based on your votes.
As always, we've found the local favorites in the areas of restaurants, food and drink, retail and services. This year, we also added a few new categories: best dentist, fitness classes, personal trainer/fitness program, travel agency (a Golden Globe winner?), art gallery and barbecue restaurant.
Some businesses take the plum roles: They've won their categories five years in a row and get to wear the Hall of Fame tiara or tux for three years.
And some readers are winners as well — go to PaloAltoOnline.com to see which voters won this year's Weekly raffle.
