As we celebrate the Riverfront Times Best of St. Louis 2012, Gut Check is asking you, dear readers, to settle the disagreements between our picks and our readers' poll.
Once again, we asked you, dear Gut Check readers, to settle the debate between our picks and our readers' choices in some of the most contentious Best of St. Louis 2012 categories.
Once again, you complied. We really did this out of curiosity, not to prove a point, but you have once again sided so strongly with us -- thanks! -- that we think we'll just end this little experiment here.
