Look: It's too hot to do anything outside. It's too hot to walk to your car and drive somewhere else. Which means it's the perfect opportunity to sit in your air-conditioned house, turn on the laptop and register your vote in the Best of St. Louis 2010 Readers' Poll
Best New Restaurant? Best Mexican Restaurant? Best French Fries? The always contentious Best Pizza? (Don't worry, pizza freaks: As always, we subdivide this into thin and thick crust categories.)
The power to elect these sacred winners is in your hands. Visit the Best of St. Louis 2010 Readers' Poll page
, register and then write in your favorites. You have until September 6 to vote. Then, on September 30, your winners -- along with our choices in these (and many, many, many more) categories will be revealed.
Remember: If you don't vote, you can't bitch when McDonald's wins Best French Fries or Starbucks wins Best Coffee.
Seriously. I don't want to hear it.
