Voting in the Memphis Flyer Best of Memphis Readers' Poll is a lot like participating in a national election: No bitching about the results unless you play the game. There is one catch. Today is the last day to cast your ballot, and it must be filed before midnight. Click here to read the rules (there are just a few) and to get started.
The annual readers' poll is fun to take because it includes dozens of categories for goods and services, arts and entertainment, media, night life and food and drink. That last category is my favorite, natch, and I was happy to see a few new listings such as "best food truck" and "best new American cuisine." Good luck picking a favorite for those two.
Winners will be announced in the September 27 issue of the Flyer and recognized with a great party that same week. Insider's tip: Try to angle a party invite because the Flyer Best Of Memphis party is the best party of the year. Seriously. Last year's bash was held on the roof of the parking garage of the Sears Crosstown building. Expect a similar cool location for 2012.
