All of the ballots are in, thousands of votes have been tallied and it's time to announce the winners of the 2016 Pleasanton Weekly Readers' Choice contest. With 17,438 confirmed and authenticated votes during balloting this spring, our devoted readers once again shared their thoughts about which Pleasanton businesses, professionals and places are the best of the best in categories within arts and entertainment, food and drink, restaurants, retail and services.
The winners are located all over Pleasanton and their local roots range from brand new to decades-old. Some are familiar names and some are first-time honorees, but all earned the respect and adoration of our readers.
This year's contest also features a new look, with a redesigned logo, reorganized sections, several retired categories and some new ones too, plus our first-ever Readers' Choice Hall of Fame, which recognizes winners who took first place in their categories for five or more straight years.
Now, sit back and learn a little more about the 2016 Readers' Choice winners and Hall of Fame class.
