Which bar won the weekly poll?
It looks like there’s some love for the Drake. Drake Tavern, on Old York Road in Jenkintown, won this week’s Patch Readers’ Choice Poll for best place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day/grab a green beer. The bar took 45 percent of the vote; the runner up was Keswick Tavern, which garnered 26 percent of the vote. Hopefully there will be some nice weather on Saturday so people can take advantage of that outside bar area. Congratulations to the Drake. -- Next week we’ll be looking for the best park in Abington.

'Ryan told me to always tell women you work in finance ... I am a bank teller'
We’re in week three of our weekly Patch “Best Of” poll. This week, we’re looking for your favorite bank. Yep, bank. Which bank in Abington offers the best customer service, the best interest rates, the best hours ... the best lollipops? (Do banks still do that?) Do any banks offer up dog treats? (That bank would get my dog Lola's vote.) We’ve got a spattering of banks for which to vote. The poll is at the bottom of the page. If we’re missing your favorite, let us know in the comments. Also, if you feel so inclined, let us know why you voted for your particular bank in the comments section. The winner will be revealed Friday afternoon. Should there be a tie, we will break it by looking at the comments sections. Thanks, and happy voting …

Who won the weekly poll?
After a staggering 130-plus votes, Keswick Coffee House, at 285 North Keswick Avenue, in Glenside, won Abington Patch’s “Best Of” poll for coffee shops. Keswick Coffee House grabbed 39 votes, (29 percent) and edged out Elcy’s Café by a mere three votes. Congrats to Keswick Coffee House, and thanks to all who voted. The business will receive a fancy Patch "Best Of" certificate (not super fancy) and a visit from the township's biggest consumer of coffee, me. Check back on Monday for the next weekly poll — best bank. If you’ve got nominations for the best bank, email them in to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Who won the weekly poll?
The results are in, and the voters have deemed Lee’s Hoagie House on Old York Road to have the Best Takeout in Abington, scoring 40 percent of the vote in this week’s Best of Patch poll. I’m a fan as well, as I usually try to hit up Lee’s in Abington just before heading down to see the Phillies at CBP. Congrats to Lee’s. Check back on Monday for the next weekly poll — best coffee shop. If you’ve got nominations for the best coffee shop, email them in to email@example.com, or comment below. We want to know about every (good) obscure coffee shop in Abington.
