Voting for the WRAL Out and About 2016 Voters’ Choice Awards is open until July 10, 2016. This is your chance to vote for your favorites in categories ranging from food, nightlife and lifestyle. I always enjoy voting my favorite for categories like best coffee shop, favorite brewery, and food truck. Of course it is really hard to pick my favorites. Among this year’s five finalist in the coffee shop category I have to give Jubala the edge with the addition of their new location on Hillsborough Street. Big Boss remains my favorite brewery because of their great beer and weekly Tuesday night run club. It was a close one for food trucks, but American Meltdown remains a top pick for me. I love their buffalo chicken melt called the “Buffalo Blitz” (pictured above).
There are many other categories to vote for as well. You can view all the nominees for each category and vote for your favorites using this online ballot. Voting ends July 10th with winners to be announced in August.
