50 shades of faves: 2012 Readers' Choice Awards
By Bill Orben, Associate Managing Editor

If Fairwinds Credit Union and 4 Rivers Smokehouse ever decide to open stores in a common location, Central Florida will beat a path to their door.

Although vastly different in what they offer, Fairwinds and 4 Rivers drew top attention from readers in Orlando Business Journal's annual Readers' Choice Awards.

Each year, OBJ's Readers' Choice Awards draws thousands of votes for the best places to eat, shop, relax and do business. This year was no exception, with 3,489 votes cast.

Fairwinds, which took top honors for best credit union, and 4 Rivers, named by readers as the best restaurant.
