Dear Readers,

Welcome back to the SF Bay Guardian’s Best of the Bay! This is our 43nd edition of Best of the Bay, and it comes out on the Bay Guardian’s 52nd anniversary. That’s a lot of Bests of the Bay, and we can’t thank you enough for your support as we keep this cherished Bay Area tradition alive. (Please consider donating or becoming a member to help us continue, or advertise to our 35,000 weekly readers eager to support local businesses and events.)

This year, thousands and thousands of you voted for what you loved in more than 150 categories. We know that was a lot to get through, but we want to shower attention on as many local people, places, and things as we can, especially in the rapidly changing city. This year, we’re also announcing the two runners up in each category, because why not? So many people voted for so many great things (including some new to us), that it made us hopeful for the city’s vibrant culture. Enjoy the results of this year’s readers’ poll, and thank you for making the Bay the Best.
