In case you missed it the Best of Ocean City voting is well underway. Over the rest of the year, we’ll be picking out some of out favorite races and asking you whether it is fair. If it isn’t, feel free to vote until you believe that right has prevailed. This week, we look at some of the bar categories, but, as always, you can vote for any or all of the categories here.
Results as of August 9, 2016
Coconut’s has the best happy hour, for now
Coconut’s Bar and Grill has the best Happy Hour, followed by the write-in darling Macky’s, with the Original Greene Turtle a distant third and the rest of the competition in shouting distance only. If people continue to write Macky’s in, it could be the first write-in winner in the history of the event.
Buxy’s leads the league in Sports Bars
Pittsburgh isn’t having too awful a year and that might be bolstering Buxy’s Salty Dog, which has double the votes of the Original Greene Turtle and Pickles, which are tied for second. With the Pirates fading and the Steelers still out of the picture, though, it is anybody’s game.
Seacrets leads the Best Bar Bayside Battle
The usual suspects are vying for Best Bar Overall honors with Seacrets glancing over its shoulder to see Fish Tales in hot pursuit. MR Ducks and Macky’s also remain in striking distance and there is a nascent write in campaign for The Ropewalk which, should it get momentum could really shake things up in this most coveted category.
Neck and Neck and heads above for Best Drink
Seacrets and Fish Tales are pretty much neck and neck in this contest, but their closest competitors are lagging. The Crabcake factory, which is a fan favorite for its Bloody Marys alone, hasn’t risen to the challenge and is running last with half as many votes as the leaders. Liquid Assets has a fairly tight hold on the third position comfortably ahead of Harborside.
