Introducing The Hundy Awards

In the spirit of (and with a tip of the cap to) the now defunct Trippies, we introduce The Hundy Awards. Five Hundy listeners are invited to vote for their favorite and least favorite Las Vegas hotels, casinos, restaurants, bars, shows and other stuff. Voting is open through Oct. 17. Results will be announced at a time and in a manner to be determined.

A few guidelines:

  • One vote per person
  • Suspected ballot stuffing attempts will be disregarded
  • Ballots with responses to fewer than half of the questions will be disregarded
  • If it didn’t exist or occur between Oct. 1, 2017, and Sept. 30, 2018, it doesn’t qualify
  • If you have questions about a category, you’re overthinking it; go with your gut
  • You probably have a dozen different category ideas and ways that you would do this thing differently, but this is what we chose for better or worse
  • This is supposed to be fun, so don’t take it too seriously

For additional details, listen to podcast #663.
