About the BOB Awards
For over 20 years, Charlotte magazine has dedicated its May issue to the BEST of the BEST in Charlotte. We call it "The BOBs" for short, and we recognize the city's finest in food and drink, nightlife, entertainment, shopping, mind and body, and more–hundreds of winners in all. After the list is published, we host an event to celebrate the winners. Read our list of 2018 BOB Award Winners here.
How does the BOB Awards Work?
Winners are picked and written up by staffers, former staffers, and regular contributors. When we pick a winner, not only have we been there, but we’ve been to several other top contenders as well. We are confident in saying that our pick is the best in town. We also solicit votes from the community during a voting ballot that opens in January. Read a full explanation on our BOB Awards process here.
