What will the winner get? Bragging rights! They'll be able to tell everyone they were voted a "Best of Alexandria" by Patch readers.
And in the event of a tie in our survey, we will break the tie by counting the positive comments written both below and on the store's listing on Patch. So please let us know why you think your choice is the best.
