The sun is shining and you'd like to eat outdoors. Where's the best place for alfresco dining?
In this week's Readers' Choice 2012 poll, we're asking you to vote for the best restaurant with a patio or other open-air eating space in Alameda. We augmented Alameda Patch Facebook fans' recommendations with a few more ideas of our own.
Vote for your favorite in the poll at the end of this article. Click on the links below and rate the business on its Patch Place listing. You can even leave a review.
If we left out your favorite, start a write-in a campaign in the comments section below. (Alameda spots only, please.) A write-in could win! In the event of a tie, we will break it based on the comments, so please explain your choice.
Because our poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results, comments and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.
The poll closes at 9 a.m. Friday. Come back later that afternoon for the results.
If you want to suggest a topic or candidates for future "best" contests, post it in the comments below, and don't forget to vote.
