Rim Country’s business elite will gather Monday at the Mazatzal Hotel and Casino to learn who Roundup readers have chosen as the best restaurants, bars, hair stylist — you name it.
The Roundup sponsors the annual bash, which is free and open to the public. It draws both business owners and customers from every category.
The event includes light refreshments, a slide show highlighting the winners and nominees. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
Winners receive a framed certificate, recognition before a crowd of several hundred and a featured spot in a special section the Roundup publishes after the event.
This year, a record number of readers filled out forms in the newspaper or completed a questionnaire online, providing thousands of rankings in 80 categories.
The roughly 1,200 ballots generated more than 8,000 nominations.
Categories include some off-beat entries, like best place to catch up on gossip and best place to meet singles.
