Best Of Palo Alto voting launches

It's your turn: Vote for the best local places to eat, drink, shop and spend time

Where can Palo Altans chow down on the tastiest burger? Which local pet store is the cat's meow?

To find out, Palo Alto Online is conducting its annual Best Of Palo Alto reader survey!

This year's Best Of promises to unearth local delights, favorite haunts and new rising retail stars. Voting for the best places to eat, drink, shop and spend time in Palo Alto launches today, April 24, and extends until May 31. Go to to cast your votes.

Voters are automatically entered into our drawing for dozens of prizes, including free dinners, gift certificates and theater events. Winners will be drawn at random and contacted by email.

Best Of winners will be announced in the July 24 edition and online at

Business owners can get in on the fun using tools to help promote your business and get the votes.

Some contests rules: Voters will need to vote online in at least five categories, complete the contact information at the end of the ballot and confirm your vote via email. Only one vote per person is allowed, and confirmation is a way to discourage ballot-box stuffing. If you don't see your favorite place on the ballot's drop-down list, please write in your selection.

Let the Best Of voting begin!
