2016 Best of Bethel Awards

December 18, 2015 in After Hours - 6 Comments

What better way to show our appreciation for the community surrounding Sunday River than shouting their praises from the actual mountain tops?  In its six year run, the Best of Bethel Awards have pitted our beloved shops, restaurants, and citizens against one another in a battle royal to be named the cream of the crop.

Want to have a say in all of this? Of course you do—it’s the BOBs! Cast your votes for the following 25 categories before January 18, and we’ll publish the results (and some of the funniest responses) in our February 2016 of Sunday River This Winter.

Just a couple things to remember: There’s a beloved bearded bartender at nearly every bar in town, so be as specific as possible. Names are great for that! We’ll also know if you’re stuffing the ballot box, and that’s not cool. You’ve been warned.

      We decided to pare down the categories a bit for this year’s awards. You’re more than welcome to voice your votes for martini and wine list within the cocktail category! There’s so many to choose from.
