Best Of Broward-Palm Beach 2013 Readers' Poll: It's Time to Choose Sides

The time has come, South Florida. New Times writers are busy choosing our picks for the best food, music, shops, services, and anything else that can be categorized for our annual blockbuster Best Of Broward-Palm Beach.

But for all our hard work, there are some of you who think you can do better. We can almost hear you saying, "Those morons really think that's the best pizza in Fort Lauderdale?"

That's why we have our Readers' Poll. That's where you, oh

constant reader, get the opportunity to chime in and tell us your

favorite places to eat, shop, and play in South Florida.

There are more than 50 categories, including best food truck, diner, chef, bartender, margarita,

pizza, new restaurant, and burger. We didn't even mention the nonfood

categories like best strip club, beach, or Panthers player. There's

something for everyone, and we really want your input -- because if you

vote, then we don't have to hear you whine when your favorite hot dog

doesn't win this year's title.

All you have to do is visit readerschoice.browardpalmbeach.com and nominate your

favorites. You can either write in your choice or vote from the

drop-down items that appear.

When you're finished, click the "Save Your Ballot" button to

the left of the categories. You can vote for as many categories as you

like (or even change your vote) until May 1, when the nomination

process closes.

After that, we'll tally the results and put the

top five contenders in each category up for a vote on May 6. The final

results will be released June 13, when Best Of Broward-Palm

Beach 2013 comes out.

And here's a little tip for all you restaurateurs, chefs, and food

truck owners: Share this valuable information on your Twitter feeds and

tell everyone who comes into your restaurant to vote for you. After

all, this is Florida, the home of the hanging chad, where dead people vote and every election has a surprise toy inside... Sorry, we're confusing the election process with a box of Cracker Jack.

Here are some of last year's Readers' Choice picks to get you started:

And here's the entire Best of Broward-Palm Beach 2012 edition, in case you want to review.
