Celebrating the best locally owned establishments in the region, SRQ MEDIA asks our astute readers to vote for their favorite local eats, shopping, arts, luminaries and hotspots culminating in the buzzworthy special "Best of SRQ Local" awards feature published in the April 2021 edition. We've added new categories to celebrate those businesses who are adapting to new challenges like expanding outdoors seating and reinventing themselves.  We look to highlight local experiences—from new restaurants to virtual theatre productions, from our community's best achievements to seriously talented chefs.
