On Our Cover:
Every Vote Counted in This Year’s Best of the Bay Readers’ Poll History

For four years, we’ve asked you to settle some scores as to what’s best here around the Bay, from who has the best burger to where you’ll find the nicest playground and even who has the foulest bathrooms. Once again, you’ve given us plenty to think and write about, leading to this year’s best-ever Best of the Bay.
