Best of the best
2 Pearl tenants nominated for prestigious USA Today Awards
In case you needed another excuse to head to the Pearl this summer, Potluck Hospitality's Food Hall and Pearl Markets have been nominated for the USA TODAY 10 Best Readers Choice Awards.
And yes, there's still time to vote for the city's local gems. Readers have until July 3 to vote for their favorites (here's the link – everyone can cast their votes once a day until voting ends on July 3.)
There's also one other San Antonio establishment up for a USA TODAY Readers Choice Award: The historic Market Square is nominated in the Best Public Market category (the Pearl Farmer's Market is nominated in the best Farmer's Market category, just FYI.)
The monumental achievement was acknowledged by Mayor Ron Nirenberg, who spoke for the city as a whole when he said in an official statement: "We are thrilled to see San Antonio represented on this year’s 10 Best list of nominees ... Both Pearl and Market Square are two of some of our city’s most beloved destinations within our beautiful city, and we hope the voters will come out in full force to demonstrate our pride of place."
We know what you're thinking: How do you check on the competition? It's all consolidated at the USAToday Readers Choice Awards website.
For example, the Pearl Food Hall is up against countrywide favorites like the Little Italy Food Hall in San Diego, Chelsea Market in New York City, and Denver Central Market, amongst others.
Since the San Antonio favorites are up against some of the best spots in the country, it's up to us to vote every single day until Independence Day Eve (a good way to remember the voting deadline!)
