Best Burrito, Best Drag Queen, Best Politician, Best Bookstore … The original Best of the Bay is back! We’re so proud to host the 46th annual Bay Guardian Best of the Bay Readers’ Poll, celebrating all the people, places, and things that make living here the best ever.
We know times have been tough and the Bay Area has lost a lot of favorites. Our essential workers have gone above and beyond making our lives here possible (thank you!). Community organizations and small local businesses are still trying to survive, too—please vote for your favorites in our poll, and if you want to tell a particular story about someone or something that really made 2021 shine, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Best of the Bay.” We’ll publish as many as we can when poll results come out in October.
VOTING ENDS OCTOBER 10, so tell your friends and favorite spots to spread the word! And check out last year’s Best of the Bay for inspiration. Happy Voting!
