It is time to vote and I am not talking about for President of the United States, we still have some time on that vote.. I am talking about something that is very important to a lot of our local area businesses. Every year around this time "Hudson Valley Magazine" asked you the people of the Hudson Valley to vote for your favorite businesses in a wide variety of categories.

It is a great honor to be nominated and it is really great to win. Plus it all wraps up with a great event that you can attend where all of the best businesses will be on hand to celebrate winning and thank you for you vote.

Over the next few weeks as you go to you favorite coffee shop, restaurant, antique store, happy hour spot, car dealer, pet groomer, winery, brewery, pizza parlor, candy store well you get the idea, be sure to ask them about "Best of the Hudson Valley" and remember to vote for them online at It will be greatly appreciated and hopefully you favorite business will win.
