IN 1998, this magazine published its first Best of the Best Awards list to help readers navigate the growing options for dining, shopping, wellness, and entertainment around the city. We’ve done it each year since then, exploring all the things that make our city great, so we can share our findings with you. We’ve asked for your favorites, too. This marks our 20th year of presenting BOB Awards, and our editors’ picks are the most researched, nuanced list around—without any connection to advertising. We hope you can depend on us to help you discover everything from a place to get your hair cut to a restaurant for date night or a funky dog groomer. Just look for that bright red BOBs sticker on the door.
