Time to find out who’s the Best of La Jolla

It’s time to vote for the Best of La Jolla.

For the 13th year in a row, the Light is holding its poll to determine the best of the Jewel — from our restaurants to our hotels, galleries, boutiques and specialty stores. Of course, we’ve got categories for our favorite health and fitness providers as well for your favorite professionals in a wide range of categories. In all, there are more than 50 opportunities for you to share your choices.

“This is a great opportunity for us to put the spotlight on the businesses and people that make La Jolla a great place to shop, eat, stay and do businesses,” said Phyllis Pfeiffer, the Light’s publisher. “We encourage you to tell your friends and customers to get their votes in.”

Each week, we’ll award a prize to a randomly selected voter. The first week’s prize is a $100 gift certificate to Girard Gourmet. Watch the Light each week to find out what’s next.

Voting starts Aug. 4 and runs through Sept. 8. The results will be published in the Oct. 27 edition.
