Original story Oct. 8:
Seattle Weekly is taking its coverage outside the city for the second-annual "Snackdown," a bracket-style competition of Seattle-area dining scenes.
The series of online polls pits various neighborhoods and towns against one another and asks readers to vote for the one with the best dining scene. The competition was expanded this year to include several suburban cities in King, Snohomish and Kitsap counties.

The current poll puts Bellevue up against the combined forces of Woodinville and Redmond. Seattle Weekly critic Hanna Raskin makes a strong case for Woodinville touting the incredible concentration of wineries and growing restaurant scene.
She gives props to pizza at The Station, and handmade pasta at Italianissimo, as well as brunch at Barking Frog and dinner at the "iconic" Herbfarm. And she also mentions Redhook Brewery, and Woodinville Whiskey Company.
Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday. As of Monday afternoon, Bellevue was leading the poll 75 to 25 percent. Should Bellevue beat out Woodinville and Remond? Click here to cast your vote.
