REMEMBER: VOTE FOR A MINIMUM OF 25 CATEGORIES TO HAVE YOUR BALLOT COUNTED.

VOTING ENDS AT MIDNIGHT ON FRIDAY, JAN. 31, 2020. 


SOME GUIDELINES:

1. We appreciate the creativity of local, independent business, and these are the businesses that Best Of celebrates. Therefore, we consider Think Local First guidelines when selecting winners: businesses that have majority ownership based in the counties of Santa Cruz, Monterey, Santa Clara or San Benito. We make an exception for chain stores that were founded in Santa Cruz County, and are proud to include them.

2. Votes for businesses with multiple locations are divided among the total number of locations.

3. There are a few categories in the food section that are so popular we offer a vote by city. Voters don’t always know where city lines are drawn, so we place the total votes according to where voters tend to ascribe them. For example, Pleasure Point winners are included in Capitola because most voters associate Pleasure Point with Capitola (it’s in Santa Cruz).

4. We reserve the right to eliminate a category with so few votes that it’s imprudent to assign “best” status.

It’s a privilege and an honor, this voting thing. And remember, you only get to vote once.The results for the Best Of Santa Cruz 2020 will be announced in March in our Best of Santa Cruz County issue. Thanks for playing!

  1. When I pull up the boundaries for the city of Santa Cruz, it certainly doesn’t include Pleasure Point, and when I pull up the boundaries of Capitola, Pleasure Point is included within, so I wonder why you say Pleasure Point is in Santa Cruz and not Capitola…

  2. Stockwell Cellars, Winery, has great entertainment on Friday’s, great wines, very good artwork, and an excellent facility to meet up with friends. I don’t know what more you can say about such a business except that the owners are themselves great and very friendly people. I’ve been impressed with Eric and Suzanne since I met them. They also employ the best possible people to both serve the wine as well as to hold an interesting conversation.

  3. Gemma is a fabulous massage therapist, very intuitive and helpful, not to mention a sweet person! I highly recommend her, she’s a truly gifted therapist.

  4. Shawna Ristic is the best massage therapist in Santa cruz. She combines her acute intuitive gift with compassion and gentle nurturing hands resulting in an exquisite healing experience.
