Here is the list of candidates:
Wow! Isn't it exciting to see so many new businesses opening shop in our great neighborhood? I'm remiss for not having patronized a lot of them yet (I drool everytime I walk by newcomer restaurant El Sol de America -- the food smells SO good! I can't wait to check it out!). It's going to be tough to choose which one to nominate for best new business, as so many are awesome new additions!
