Twenty-one years in, that’s still how we do it: You vote in around 100 categories (winners denoted by the “Readers’ Choice” star), then City Weekly adds over 300 local favorites of our own. After our distribution team strains their backs and vans delivering this fat issue, we throw a party for all included—this year, with a twist: A handful of “civilian” voters were chosen to attend our Best of Utah bash and hobnob with fabulous local celebrities.
Who says voting never pays off?
