And The Winners For The 2017 Best Of Pasadena Are…

April 19, 2017

It took our staff several days to tally all the votes and come up with the list of winners for this year’s Best of Pasadena survey.

To be eligible, each business must have a commercial address within the circulation area of the Voice, and a nominee had to receive at least five votes to qualify. We had only a few categories that didn’t receive enough votes, and we are listing both the winner and the runner-up in each qualifying category.

So without further ado...the envelope, please!
