The Results Are In …

Raiders’ Choice 2020 Check out the winners, pages 2B-10B

Traditionally, The Daily Toreador recognizes the winners of our annual Raiders’ Choice Awards in late spring following voting early in the semester. COVID-19 changed those plans, but these businesses and your votes deserved to be recognized. So enjoy seeing if your top choices were those selected by your fellow Red Raiders. Support these businesses and try some new things — maybe you’ll find a new favorite. Be on the lookout for voting again in February. Thank you to those who voted last year and we hope you’ll do so again. Best
