Voting begins on downtown Bellevue's Haute Picks


Voting has begun for the 2012 Haute Picks contest, an annual event by the Bellevue Downtown Association to name the “best of downtown Bellevue” in 20 categories across dining, retail, services and experiences.

Online voting will continue until 5 p.m. April 6.

“This contest allows fans of downtown Bellevue to cast a personal vote for that merchant or restaurateur that goes above and beyond to earn your business,” said Jennifer Fischer, vice president of sales and marketing for the association.

Only one ballot per person will be counted and winners will be announced in the summer issue of Bellevue Downtown magazine and at the Bellevue Downtown Association’s Bellevue Downtown Forum event on Wednesday, April 25, 7:30 a.m.-9:00 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue.
