AWARD WE FORGOT?

If you would like to suggest an award category (and a winner for it), simply log in -- as you must do to vote -- and click on the "Award We Forgot?" link which will appear in place of this text after you've logged in.

As the OC Weekly celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, we've decided to go back to the '90s in celebrating Best Of! Restaurants, bars, clubs, businesses, people--all the best OC has to offer, with a '90s twist! Enjoy, and start voting for your favorites!
 

Nominate your favorite places, people and things of Orange County by August 30th to have your say! The top five nominations per category will then go onto the voting round. Voting will take place from September 3rd-24th and then the winners will be announced in the much-anticipated Best Of issue on October 15th!
