Suggestion box: Best of WNC 2011 categories

The official start of summer is less than one week away. That means … well, that means a lot of things. Here at Xpress, we’re finalizing our plans for our annual Best of WNC poll, the annual celebration of all things regional, in which we invite you — the splendorous and ever-royal collective You, our readers — to vote for your favorite local businesses, restaurants, bars, bands, yoga studios, tattoo parlors and so much more. Last year we had more votes than ever before, so we’re upping the ante with a host of changes and we want your input.

Please join us for the third annual Best of Bash at the Orange Peel, Wednesday Nov. 17! The benefit party for Manna FoodBank will celebrate our Best Of WNC winners and feature performances by Josh Phillips Folk Festival, Sons of Ralph, Asheville Vaudeville and Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, as well as a wide variety of tasty treats from participating Best of WNC restaurants. We’ll also be raffling off another Apple iPad. This post includes a video of our first Best Of 2010 iPad winner, Beth Yager Eckstein. Congrats!
