The clock is ticking down on the third annual Eater Awards, and Eater is enlisting reader help to name the winners. Already, Eater readers have helped the editors narrow down the list for Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and hottest restaurant of the year. Now it's time to shine some light on the drink-makers of this fine city.
Here's how the voting works across the board. Eater editors have named nominees for each of five major categories. Eater readers will vote, narrowing the nominees to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner. Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
