BEST OF O-SEA WEEKLY 2016!

Ahoy, readers! As you may know, we were bought earlier this year by the Duncan Macintosh Company, publishers of boating magazines and organizers of the best boat shows in the world. Which got us thinking: let's do a nautical theme for this year's Best Of! At the very least, it's a perfect excuse to dress up a hot guy and girl in sailor's whites and let them pose with our winners! From sushi and whiskey bars, to yoga and where to get pierced, our OC Weekly team has scoured the county for those businesses and places that deserve your attention!

Have your own opinions on who rolls the best burritos, shakes the best martini or inks the best tattoos? Make sure to enter your nominations for the 100+ categories below. Then vote on the finalists and see who wins in the October 20th issue and online! One lucky reader who nominates and votes, will win a paddleboard!

YOUR VOICE, YOUR CHOICE!


Nominations Round: July 28 - August 28
