In September we asked you, our readers, to vote for your favorite restaurants, hangouts, and charities — from your favorite burgers and desserts to the Best Guesthouse, Business and Realtor. We received more than 5,000 votes in more than 100 categories. This year the contest was a two-step process. In August you nominated your favorites and then in September you voted on the top 5 in each category.

This year we divided 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 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.

So without any further ado here are this year’s winners…
