Best Of Categories, often predictable, but thanks anyway

They were often predictable, particularly in sections where there is so little choice. Still, it makes entertaining reading and for the few establishments I have never heard of and am interested in, I will make the effort and try them out.

This was pretty entertaining to read. Yes, it is too bad about the choices, but what can one do?
I will make an effort to visit some of the restaurants listed as I have not yet done so.
Does MP have their own Readers' Choice issue? I am concerned because a particular health / fitness company did some major ballot stuffing. I saw it with my own eyes. They would fill in the votes for every client and send them in. Sometimes they would tell the client that they had done so. Most of the time, they did not. I think it would be very difficult to track these things down though.
For the winners, it would be nice to read a comment or two by voters on why they voted. I'm interested because my company and I often go out to lunch and we like to know what we can expect ahead of time.
This issue is great and it was fun to read. :-)

Can we assume the ballot stuffing was done by the winner? It is a new place, I never heard of it so how could it get so many votes?

I am not sure how the ballot stuffing could have been done because as far as I can remember, it was online and only one ballot for each computer was enabled. Last year, I think it was different and I know that for someyears there was actually a ballot printed in the newspaper that had to be used.
