Fox 13’s Hope Woodside (Best TV Anchorwoman) and Sister Dottie S. Dixon (aka actor Charles Frost, Best Utahn) sipping like proper ladies in the Beehive Tea Room (Best Secret Rendezvous): A 13-year Best of Utah winner, a 2010 newcomer and a personal pick from the City Weekly staff.

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?
