The red carpet was rolled out for the sold out show at the Hotel Arista.
This was the 6th year Naperville Magazine hosted the Best of Naperville Awards.
To kick things off Mayor Pradel won a surprise honorary award for best mayor.
“This is overwhelming, but I am very happy. I needed that little nudge, so thank you,” said the Mayor.
Jackson Avenue Pub was named the Best Bar, Sullivan’s Steakhouse defended their titles for Best Martini and Best Romantic restaurant, and Bri’Zan Couture is the place to shop in town for women’s clothing and accessories, taking home the awards for Best Boutique and Accessory Store.
“It feels amazing, we’ve won these awards for three years in a row. We could not be more honored to get this from our customers, its so special for us,” said owner of the boutique, Sue Cerulli.
Voting took place online from December to June, the votes were tallied, leading up to the biggest party of the summer.
CBS’s Mary Kay Kleist and Dave Savini emceed the evening, with portions of the proceeds benefitting Arranmore Arts.
Arranmore Arts programs feature innovative educational opportunities through the arts to the western suburbs.
You can find the full list of winners and recap of the event all in the August issue of Naperville Magazine.
