The Big O Awards!

The votes are in, and it's time to name the winners.

The Observer’s critics have combined their expertise to pick what are in our opinions some of the best dining, shopping, entertainment and personalities this region has to offer. I’ve culled through hundreds of readers’ opinions, too.

The results are our “Big O Awards” (for the unfamiliar, “The Big O” is a common Observer nickname). They’re publishing this Friday as a special insert in the Observer's E&T section.

They’ll also be available for a while online at www.charlotte.com/entertainment. We’re already posting winners online this week - here are links to the food & drink and shopping sections.

The goal, of course, was to give readers a useful guide to some things in this region they might not know about, or might not have tried yet. We also wanted to have a little fun. We hope you’ll pull out the section and keep it year-round.

But I know many people won’t agree with everything selected. So, feel free to send your reactions and suggestions my way (some of you are already doing that). I’ll probably get ideas of future places to write about from your feedback.

What do you think? What or who else should be winning “Big O” awards? Post here or e-mail me.

UPDATE: The entire section is now available online at this link (follow the links on the right side of that page to see all choices on food & drink, shopping, nightlife, entertainment and people). Or you could always pick up a copy of today's Observer to see it all in one place!

Probably, if you want a job at the Washington Post, you need to know how to spell and use apostrophes.
