Winners and finalists of the 2015 competition were invited to attend a Pop-Up Preview Party at the SRQ Magazine office studio, where they enjoyed a sneak peek at the April Best of SRQ Local issue and a few special treats from some of the featured locations around town. As the winners opened envelopes revealing the finalist and winner certificates, the studio was filled with congratulatory wishes and plenty of smiles. "Special thanks for all of our loyal readers who voted in the 2015 Best of SRQ Local competition," said a representative from SRQ Magazine.
