In these times, going out may not offer the same options we’ve been accustomed to in pre-pandemic times. But many of our favorite restaurants and entertainment spots are finding new ways to (carefully) welcome us.

Now is a great time to show your appreciation and give your favorite place a shout out by voting in our annual Boulder County Gold People’s Choice Awards. Thousands of locals are taking this opportunity to recognize their favorite retail stores, entertainment and dining venues, and service providers.

In these challenging times, your vote means even more to local businesses who deserve recognition for what they bring to our community. We make it easy for you, with both print and online ballots.

Voting begins today for Eats, Drinks & Entertainment businesses. Your votes, together with thousands of others, will be counted, tabulated and reported in the Boulder County Gold Winners’ Edition, publishing Sunday, Oct. 25 in the Daily Camera.

Your opinion matters like never before. To place your vote online, go to dailycamera.com/vote.
