Nominations Closed

Northbrook Patch is no longer accepting Readers' Choice nominations.

UPDATE July 11 at 4:40 p.m. The nomination period for Readers' Choice awards has ended. Voting for the nominated businesses will begin July 23. 

Who do you turn to when you need your car fixed? Or when you're craving a great meal or an indulgent massage?

Everyone has their favorite spots in town and now we want you to share them with us — and with each other.

Northbrook Patch has been running Readers’ Choice polls for several months, but we’ve decided to revamp it from a weekly feature to a summer event. We’ve chosen more than two dozen categories of stores, restaurants and services for you to vote on so that your neighbors and future readers will benefit from your experience.

For the next two weeks, we’re asking that you nominate your favorites in a series of categories. Nominations are accepted until July 9. After that, we’ll take your suggestions and turn them into polls so that readers can vote for who’s best in town. (For the contest's full rules, click on the PDF above.)

Chicken Charlie's. Best chicken in town, maybe in the state. Chicken salad is the world's finest. Best casual restaurant . Gets my vote.

Click on the green space and type in your vote. Green is kinda dark so it's hard to see the cursor

As someone who's new to Northbrook, I think it's time to pay Chicken Charlie a visit...

How do I nominate a business? It wasn't clear on the poll what to do.
Stan Golovchuk (Editor) July 02, 2012 at 10:12 PM
Type your nomination into the green box adjacent to each category, scroll down and click submit.

How do you nominate a business if it doesn't belong in one of the categories?

Didn't see a space to nominate a preschool either...am I missing it?

We are only accepting nominations that fit into each category. However, you may suggest a new category you'd like to see when we bring the reader's choice award back next year.

We are accepting preschool nominations in the daycare category, which you can find by scrolling to the bottom of the field with all the green boxes.
