"Best Of Pasadena" Winners For 2012 Are.

View Bio
April 18, 2012

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, a company must have a business address within the circulation area of The Pasadena Voice, and a category had to receive at least five votes to qualify. We only had a few categories that didn’t get enough votes, including “best dessert,” “best happy hour” and “best kept secret.” We are listing both the first-place winner and the runner up in each qualifying category.

And so, without further ado… The envelope please!
