It’s March and that means three very important things: Spring is almost here, St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and prairie dog’s Best Of Food is back! Click here or on the rectangular red rectangle at the top of the page to go to the ballot (you’ll have to log in or set up an account, which is easy to do). Scroll down, read the categories, think about the food industry people and places you like and, when you’re ready, vote! But DON’T RUSH, because there are no do-overs once you hit “submit”!

But don’t put it off forever, either — you don’t want to miss out on a chance to win a prize worth $500. No you don’t.

(I’ve heard rumours there might be surprise bonus prizes awarded  over the next three weeks, too — so make sure you’re registered!).

Best Of Food! It’s back! Have fun! Enjoy the democracy! Voting ends at noon March 23.
