In September we asked our readers to vote for their favorite restaurants, hangouts, and charities — from your favorite burgers and desserts to the Best Attorney, Business and Realtor.

We received more than 9,000 votes in more than 100 categories. This year the contest was a two-step process. The nominees were chosen by you and the staff in August and then in September you voted on the top five in each category.

Each year we divide the contest up by county, giving our readers in Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade, and Key West a chance to vote for their local favorites and to showcase LGBT friendly establishments outside of Broward County and the Wilton Manors area. Remember folks these are your opinions — not ours. Don’t agree with the winners? Well then make sure to vote in next year’s contest.
Only those votes that came with valid email addresses were counted and duplicates were discarded. Due to the growth of the contest we’re no longer able to print all of the stories in the paper. Advertisers were given priority. But you can still read them online at So without any further ado here are this year’s winners...
