Reno.com and Reno Magazine held their inaugural Best of Reno contest this year. Nearly 20,000 Reno.com and RGJ.com readers cast their votes — more than 190,000 votes in all — for their favorite people, places and things in Reno/Sparks.
The most popular categories were Shopping & Services, Food & Drink and Health & Beauty; the two other categories were Resorts & Gaming; and Places To Go & Things To Do. The most popular subcategories were aesthetician, appliance store, florist, mortgage broker, local bartender, burger, pet business, bakery, real estate agent and reakfast/brunch restaurant.
Voting ran June 1-30 and followed a nomination period that ran May 15-26 where readers nominated their favorites — more than 5,000 in all.
Results will be published here and in the September/October issue of Reno Magazine, which will be on newsstands Sept. 10.
