The Chicago Reader began their Readers’ Poll in 2008 with the release of their "Best of Chicago" annual series. In 2010 it included five categories: Goods and Services, Food and Drink, Arts and Entertainment, Sports and Recreation, and Civics. Four categories consisted of somewhere between 20 and 40 polls of various businesses throughout Chicago; the fifth category, Civics had one poll asking who should run against Mayor Daley in 2011.
