Ugh, so aggravating to read through the choices for AZCentral's "Best Of". Why can't I add any write-ins?

Because to accept write-ins would highlight just how awful the selections are.

It's so bad it isn't even worth getting frustrated over. I say write it off as the paean to over-the-hill dinosaurs and PR ballot-stuffing exercise that it is and move on.

  • La Fontanella
  • Nick's Italian Restaurant
  • Oregano's
  • Pellini Italian Eatery
  • RigaTony's
  • Spinato's Pizzeria

Dom I know you said its not worth getting frustrated over and I know deep down you're right. But then I read those "best" Italian nominees again and it makes me want to punch a kitten.

I'm gonna go take an advil.

Exactly my point! That's why I'm voting Red Robin for best burger because of their unlimited fries. Boom!

If my memory serves me correctly, the AZCentral's Best Readers' Choice has a write-in period first, then the top 10 from each category move on to voting in the final round. So to win, a place has to stuff the ballot box twice.

You have no idea.

I see your pain and raise you monumental pain and stupidity.
