Economic meltdown. Political tension. Another first-round playoff exit for the Cubs.

Who's ready for Best Of 2008?

That's the spirit!

See, amid the doom and potential gloom (that will spread from sea to sea if Robot Turtle and Dolphin Whisperer get elected), there remain some positive things to enjoy. Like great food and drink. No, not great the best food and drink to be found locally. Next issue, we'll bring you the best in local commerce, icons and attractions.

You vote 'em, we count 'em, they rejoice, and we all make Friday-night plans to discover what the fuss is about.

This year's format kicks off with an oh-so-efficient, alphabetized index that includes the top three vote-getters in each category. Then we get into write-ups on all first-place winners, as well as a few writers' picks.

Your tour guides in this issue: Alexa Acord, Deb Acord, Kirsten Akens, Elizabeth Anderson, Bill Forman, Carrie Frasure, Frances Gomeztagle, Kevin Kehl, Anthony Lane, Amanda Lundgren, Mandy Moench, Monika Mitchell Randall, Ralph Routon, Matthew Schniper, Deidre Schoolcraft, J. Adrian Stanley, Jill Thomas, Rich Tosches, Andrea Wenker and Kirk Woundy.

Our photographers: Brienne Boortz, Cayton Photography, Jeremy Eyman, Jon Kelley and L'Aura Montgomery.

As always, thanks to all those who voted and to the good-sport businesses who are helping us celebrate our 15th anniversary.

Finally, congratulations to this year's winners.
