The Best of Kirkland 2013


The Best of Kirkland 2013

Contest highlights Kirkland’s best

H

ere are the results of the 3rd Annual Best of Kirkland contest! We sure enjoy putting this section together and what a great turnout we had this year. We gave our readers the opportunity to vote for their favorite people, places and things in the city of Kirkland. We had more than 1,000 of your neighbors and friends who either voted on our website or sent their ballot in by mail. This is a good way to learn about people and places in our community. Maybe you haven’t tried the Mexican restaurant that was voted one of the best places to eat, or you’ve been looking for a new dentist or clinic to go to. How about a good place to go for coffee or a place to dine on date night? Need some ideas about where to go in your neighborhood for a good realtor? There are great places and people right here in

Kirkland. The Best of Kirkland will offer some of your neighbors’ favorites. Thank you to all of you who took time to take part in this survey. Remember, shop, dine and play locally whenever possible!
