Read the Best Of 2022 Issue on

A few months ago we asked our readers to vote for their favorite restaurants, people, hangouts, and charities — from your favorite burgers and desserts to the Best Guesthouse, Business and Realtor. We received more than 18,000 votes in more than 100 categories.

First, you nominated your favorites in each category. The readers chose the Top 3 nominees in each category while the other two nominees were chosen by the staff.

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? Then make sure to vote in next year’s contest.

Only those votes that came with valid email addresses were counted.

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.

And a special thank you to Grieco Ford for sponsoring this year’s contest.
