It’s cold in Northern Michigan, but things are finally heating up February 1 as we open nominations and voting for the 9th Annual Red Hot Best Awards!

Readers can nominate and vote for their Up North favorites in 101 different categories including classics like Best Food Truck and Best Restaurant You Can Boat To.

This year we’re mixing it up with a new category: Best of the Best. Vote for places like Best Northern Michigan Restaurant and Best Northern Michigan Winery. Who will take the crown? You decide!

Nominations and first-round voting will be open from February 1 through February 20, and nominating someone is easy. Simply choose a category and fill in your favorites. MyNorth will compile the votes and highlight the top 10 in each category for the final round of voting, which takes place March 1 through March 10.

Don’t forget to subscribe to Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine to see the final Red Hot Best results in the June issue!
