Picture the best. No, it’s not you. Well, maybe it is, actually. But only if you’ve captured the hearts and minds of the community you serve: your customers or radio audience, the residents you protect, kids who participate in the after-school program you run or play on the grass at your park, people who eat the food you prepare or drink the wine you created. After all, the annual Best Of Northern Santa Barbara County poll is all about you—the community we serve. You gave us your favorite snapshots, and we laid it all out in this issue.
Check out the best of the area’s eats in Dine and Devour; see where folks go to satisfy their thirst in Liquid Connections; find those places to get cultured in Arts and Entertainment; visit a shopper’s paradise in Burnin’ Cash; gaze upon what you need to stay healthy and glowing in Feelin’ Good ; catch up on who keeps things running in Community on My Mind; and get out and about with Events and Festivities.
