Thank you for nominating and voting for all of your favorites! Congratulations to all of the finalists in Wake.

While Best of the Triangle has been running for two decades now, astute readers and INDY fans will notice that we’re doing things a little differently from now on. Instead of presenting all winners in all categories, ranging from restaurants, bars, and yoga studios to hair salons, museums, and preschools, all at once, we’re running individual contests and presenting winners in different categories one county at a time—Wake, Durham, and Orange—starting with Wake.

At the end of the year, a contest will be held pitting the best of each region against each other for the “Best of the Triangle” crown.

Congratulations again to the winners below!
