Let me see if I understand it, this is supposed to be the best of PA, yet many of the winners are not located in PA. Some of the places win by default, since they are the only one of it's kind in PA.
Typical PA back slapping.

Your comment makes no sense. You complain about winners outside of Palo Alto yet then complain Palo Alto businesses win by default!

I loved this issue. Very creative and clever. If a Palo Alto business loses to one in Menlo Park, then perhaps they should try harder next year and get more people to vote for them!

My comment makes perfect sense--the whole "Best of PA" is a joke for the reasons I mentioned--out of town winners and default winners.
Too bad they didn;t have a category for the best PA "whine".

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
