Consider this your wake-up call: If you haven't voted in the 2011 Best of Boise survey, you only have until midnight on Sunday, Aug. 28, to officially register your opinion.
Vote online, then watch for Best of Boise Staff Picks in the Wednesday, Sept. 21, edition of BW, and the granddaddy of all popularity contests, the Readers' Choice results, which publish on Wednesday, Sept. 28. Watch for details on the official Best of Boise party celebrating the winners on Sunday, Oct. 2, at the Linen Building.
Of course, a little last-minute campaigning on the part of some local businesses isn't unheard of. In fact, we've seen pleas for votes in e-newsletters from Pamela's Bakery, Good Goods and Co., and Tanzanite Salon, and places such as Jakers, Guido's Pizzeria (on Chinden Boulevard) and Roastere Specialty Coffee are asking anyone driving by for votes via their reader boards.
