Attendees were asked to select their favorite three venues by the end of the night. Though Huber did not know the winning order Sunday because he had not counted the ballots, he said the top three picks were Chicago Pizza, Sal’s Pizza and Wine & Roses.
They will be given a $500, $300 and $100 prize, depending on rank, and a banner to display year-round.

The Kiwanis Club of Cape Coral will host a Foreign Beer Fest today to help raise money for the backpack program they sponsor for Lee County students.
