Readers' Choice Winners 2012

Here are your picks for Readers' Choice.

All this summer you've nominated and voted for your favorite local businesses in categories ranging from Best Burger and Best Arts & Entertainment Venue to Best Blog.

We've tallied all the poll votes and now it's time to announce the winners. See below for our complete list of Readers' Choice winners. Tie breakers used were number of nomination comments, number of positive comments in directory listing and promotion of voting via social media when Sarasota Patch is mentioned in post. In the event of all three tie breakers failing, a tie was declared. In categories where only two businesses competed, no second place winner was declared.
