Best of the City — it’s your choice

Voting for your favourite brews, bars, sporting events and festivals, among many more continues until April 14 at 11 p.m.

Ask someone to name his or her favourite Victoria restaurant 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 22 year, the Victoria News is looking for your help as we launch the annual Best of the City awards.

“The awards are a great way of recognizing the extraordinary businesses and attractions in Victoria,” 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 vicnews.com where you’ll find categories ranging from restaurants to recreation and shopping to shows. We’ve pretty much covered it all.

Fill in your ballot in 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.

Voting will continue until April 14 at 11 p.m.

Results of the voting will be published in a special magazine publication on June 24.
