Thanks for participating in the 2013 Best of Sonoma County awards where the readers of The Press Democrat get to pick their choices in dozens of categories for the very best of what Sonoma County has to offer.
From April 28 through June 2, nearly 6,000 readers voted using ballots at PressDemocrat.com for their choices.
The voting was divided into four categories — So Sonoma County, Eating and Drinking, Real Life and Fun Living.
Winners will be honored publicly at a gala party in September and in a special Best of Sonoma County magazine.
