Best Of 

Welcome to the Independent's 11th annual Best Of --the peerless guide to all that is great about living in the Pikes Peak Region.

From the bike trail to the best Thai restaurant, best public scandal to best consignment store, we relied on you, our readers, to help us determine gold, silver and bronze winners in 98 categories. We then added our own editorial picks, highlighting those people and places that we believe truly deserve recognition.

This year's issue was coordinated by Independent Assistant Editor Gina Schaarschmidt, with Sarah Jane Griesemer overseeing the tallying of the readers' survey.

Contributing writers include Michael Beckel, Michael de Yoanna, Cara DeGette, Kathryn Eastburn, Gavin Ehringer, Sara Gallagher, John Hazlehurst, Kara Luger, Aaron Retka, Gina Schaarschmidt, Matthew Schniper, Carrie Simison-Bitz, Bettina Swigger, David Torres-Rouff, Rich Tosches, Dan Wilcock and Wayne Young.

As always, Art Director Kathy Conarro worked with her talented team of staffers and photographers to make sure the issue looks terrific. Contributing photographers include Sean Cayton, Gavin Ehringer, Bruce Elliott, Blanca Middlebrook, Sunnie Sacks and Creighton Smith.

Enjoy.

-- Cara DeGette, editor
