With the holidays here, everyone is out and about in Bangor and making merry. Let's take some time to recognize some of the area's awesome bartenders -- and crown the city's favorite!

Let us know which bartender is your favorite, where they work, and why they’re your favorite. Of course, we know there are lots of bars outside of Bangor, so feel free to nominate your favorites from outside the city, too.

Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 23. Then, we'll take the 10 or so with the most nominations have a vote. We'll announce the winner on Friday, Dec. 30, just in time for New Year's Eve!

The one with the most votes gets a cool $100.

We are no longer taking submissions. If you'd like to vote for your favorite bartender, you can right here!
