During these past few months, the Bend Lifestyle team has been busy working on our second annual Readers’ Choice Awards. Once again, we had an amazing response from our readers! Every contender on the ballot was nominated by the community and during the voting round, with many tight races, you, our readers, determined the winners.

The votes have been tallied, so turn the pages to find out who was voted Bend’s best and brightest in local business. Hats off to all of the businesses who were nominated, to the readers and members of our community who voted, and to those who won their category.

 Also in this issue, liven up the wintery season by checking out ideas for a night out with the arts—you don’t have to wait for Valentine’s Day! And if cozying up to the fire is more your style, warm up with our recipe for mulled wine.

This magazine would not be possible without the support of our advertisers. When you visit these local businesses, please tell them you saw their ad here, in the pages of Bend Lifestyle.

Thank you for being part of our community and be sure to visit us online at BendLifestylePubs.com and Facebook.com/Bend-Lifestyle.
