Best of Denver

First round of Best of Denver 2014 voting ends Friday

Who has the best burger in Denver? The best tater tots? The best gluten-free dish? The best draft-beer list? The best dim sum? The best pizza -- thin-crust, thick-crust or deep-dish?

It's time to bring out your best. The first round of voting in our Readers' Poll for the Best of Denver 2014 -- our thirtieth anniversary issue! -- closes at the end of the day Friday, February 14. That's just a few days from now....

So you have some work to do, because that poll includes more than a hundred categories -- and over half of them fall in the Food and Drink section.

After the polls close, we'll have our own work to do. We'll tabulate the votes, find the finalists in each of those categories, and start another round of voting. Want your favorites to move into the finals? Go to our Best of Denver 2014 Readers' Poll and vote now!

As always, the poll includes just a fraction of the categories that will be included in the final Best of Denver 2014, which will hit the streets on March 27. And our top-secret BOD squad is busy right now rounding up the very best this city has to offer. Have some non-poll suggestions? Send them to [email protected] Or just post your nominations below.
