Best of Greater MKE

Welcome to MKE Lifestyle's "Best of Greater MKE” survey. Here, we're asking you — our loyal readers — to nominate your favorite Milwaukee area people, places, stores, services and more for the chance to be named the very best in our August issue. So tell us: Where do you go to taste a creative craft cocktail? Whose takeout is tops? What’s your go-to spot for Girls' — or Guys' — Night Out? Who do you turn to for your morning or evening local news? 

We’ll tally the top nominees in these and other fun categories, then ask you to come back and vote for the ultimate winners. Because we all know how great Milwaukee, its surrounding counties, people and places are. And we value our readers’ insight most of all.


Participants may take the survey only once and must fill in a minimum of 5 survey questions. A valid email is required to participate. We respect your privacy - emails will only be used to avoid duplicate responses within this survey, and will not be used otherwise by MKE Lifestyle or shared with any third party vendor

Nominations will be accepted Jan.1 through Feb. 28, 2019. The top four nominations from each category will then be tallied, and voting to determine each group's winner and runner-up will re-open Monday, March 4th. Voting closes Friday, April 26. 

The winners from each category will be revealed in our August “Best of Greater MKE” issue.
