It's January. And every January we ask our readers to tell us about the best bars, restaurants, salons, mechanics, clothing stores, and a ton of other awesome stuff in the Hartford area. We've been doing the Advocate's annual Best of Hartford Readers' Poll for decades now and there are still annual surprises. Last year, readers cast more votes than ever before. We're hoping to break that record again this year. We've added a number of new categories. (Best Donuts, Best Scotch Selection, Best Pickles and more!) And we're counting on you to point us to the best. Thanks for taking the time to vote, and thanks, as always, for reading.
