Congratulations to kristina.noelani, our lucky winner of $500 in gift cards from Chinatown shops, eateries & activities. Every vote in the 2018 Best of hiChinatown that included an email address was counted as an entry. Winner was chosen at random and has been contacted via email.
Check your Instagram messages! Our five lucky contest winners were contacted on 2/16/18, each winning a $50 gift card to one of the top voted restaurants of their choice! To enter, all they had to do was to tell us what they look forward to most on Chinese New Year in Chinatown and tag 3 friends.
