Fine cuisine. Theater. Hotels. Shopping. The East End is filled to the brim with great food, things to do, places to go, sights to see and more. But with so many options it can be hard to decide where to start. The annual Dan’s Best of the Best competition is about to commence, celebrating the extraordinary “anything and everything” that the East End is known for. We had an amazing competition in 2014, and nominations for 2015 begin June 19!
This year, all nominating will occur online at Dan’s Best of the Best List—DansBOTB.com, our brand-new website devoted to great East End businesses and services. To nominate a business for the Best of the Best competition, head to the DansBOTB.com! You may nominate one candidate in each category every day during the nomination period. The more you support your favorites, the better you make their chance of moving on to the voting round that begins in August.
This year, certain categories have changed, with new awards added and some streamlined. Here are just a few of our new categories: Best Frozen Yogurt, Best Spin Class and Best Nutritionist.
Dan’s Best of the Best began more than 25 years ago, showcasing the ultimate in East End experiences by having readers nominate and vote for their local favorites in more than 200 categories in the areas of Arts & Entertainment, Food & Drink, Home Services, Pets, Professional Services, Recreation & Tourism, Restaurants & Nightlife, Shopping and Wellness & Beauty. The Best of the Best names separate winners for the North Fork and South Fork for most categories, except in the categories of Long Island Wine, Breweries and Personalities.
In keeping with tradition, all winners will be invited to attend the Best of the Best awards ceremony in August. The Dan’s Best of the Best awards party is always a night to remember, a rollicking evening of live music, congratulations and, of course, the presentation of the coveted Best of the Best award certificates.
Dan’s Best of the Best 2015 nominations are open now. You can submit your nominees online at DansBOTB.com (where the full set of rules is available) until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, August 3. After all nominations have been tallied, the 2015 nominees will be posted online and the voting will begin.
