Monday votes can decide Atlanta’s gay ‘Bestest’

Add this share

It call comes down to this. After two weeks of voting, write-in challengers and social media campaigning, Monday is the last day to vote before the Bestest of the Best of Gay Atlanta are chosen.

Possible upsets by write-in candidates and grudge match decisions among finalists will be settled on Monday night. Unlimited voting continues until midnight, so it’s your last chance to influence the results with your choices before we celebrate with the winners and absolutely everyone else at Jungle on Thursday for our Bestest Bash. RSVP if you haven’t already.

Ria’s, Radial or Einstien’s for Bestest Brunch? Las Margaritas or No Mas Cantina for Bestest Mexican? Ruby Redd, Edie Cheezburger or Bubba D. Licious for Bestest Drag Queen? MISTER Center, Lost N Found or AID Atlanta as Bestest Non-profit? Philip Bonneau, Topher Payne or Barry Brandon in A&E? Those are just some of the hotly contested races.

You decide, but do it fast. Vote here now early and often through midnight or forever hold your peace. The winners will be announced on Thursday in conjunction with our ultimate goal for the whole contest in the first place: gather ye gays to party at the Nov. 15 Bestest Bash.
