Return of The Hundy Awards

The Hundy Awards are back. 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 Nov. 5. Results will be announced via Patreon livestream and Five Hundy podcast. I’ve cut a handful of categories from last year, but there’s still a lot to consider so give yourself plenty of time. 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, 2018, and Sept. 30, 2019, 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
