Still time to vote online for local faves in Best of the City

Help choose this year’s winners in a multitude of categories; have a chance to win cash

Ask someone to name their favourite restaurant in Greater Victoria and it’s sure to generate discussion.

It’s the same for favourite brews, bars, sporting events, and festivals — not to mention theatre, dance, or art in any of a multitude of disciplines and styles.

Which is best? It’s a tough choice.

That’s why, for the 22nd year, the Goldstream News Gazette and Black Press are looking for your help in determining the 2016 favourites in our annual Best of the City awards.

“The awards are a great way of recognizing the extraordinary businesses and attractions in the region,” said Penny Sakamoto, Black Press group publisher. “It’s wonderful for the business community and it’s a lot of fun for our readers; a chance for them to have their input to naming the best of a great city.”

To cast your ballot, go to goldstreamgazette.com/contests and click on the Best of the City link to get started. There, you’ll find categories ranging from restaurants and recreation to shopping and shows. We’ve pretty much covered it all.

Fill in your ballot for at least 40 categories and you’ll be entered to win $100 cash. More importantly, you’ll help put your favourites on this year’s list of the Best of the City.

Online voting continues until April 14 at 11 p.m.

The results will be kept under wraps until they are published in the Best of the City magazine, to be delivered with your Gazette on June 24.
