So let's get to it. We're keeping the polls open until Friday at 1 pm ET so you can stuff the channels appropriately.

The Battle of the Booze
I suppose we shouldn't be surprised to see an all-booze final in the F&B region. The dream showdown between coffee and booze was never meant to be and I suppose a liquid lunch is far fewer calories than anything at Chipotle, so there you have it.

But the real question is — do the teetotalers and those who prefer the presence of other humans outnumber the garden variety boozehounds? This is will be exciting.
