September is a time of transition. The summer is behind us, and the kids are back in school. Believe it or not, we start thinking about the holidays right about now. Businesses are either gearing up for the fourth quarter or are planning to wind down. Well, the Vinings Lifestyle staff has been busy working on the 2017 Best of Smyrna Vinings contest. We had an amazing response from our readers. More than 120,000 votes were cast by our readers this year. Hats off to ALL the nominees; it’s been a ride watching the votes come in. Every business on the ballot was nominated by residents here in the Smyrna/Vinings area, which means that you’ve made a great impression on our readers. Now, the drumroll. Who won? You have to turn the page to find out. Join us at the awards mixer and mix it up with all the nominees, winners and readers from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. on September 14 at Brawner Hall. See you there!
