Hold onto your haku: The results of Honolulu Weekly’s 2012 “Best Of Honolulu” Readers’ Poll and Editors’ Picks are here. The Weekly’s is Oahu’s original and oldest annual “Best Of” issue, as well as the youngest at heart.
For the first time, in honor of the Brooklynesque ascendancy of the farmers, food producers, entrepreneurs and community-minded citizenry of our Windward and North Shores, we’ve added “Country” and “Town” designations to some categories. (Yes, it also made it easier for editors to agree.)
Although, I must confess, we sort of dread compiling this big fat Honolulu lovefest, pride and happiness reign when we see the high level of reader participation in our online poll, which is not multiple choice. You have to reflect, and then type in your answer.
This is work, as anyone knows whose mind goes blank when asked what’s their favorite poem. Our readers took the time to answer the minimum of 20 questions each.
Thank you, We’re kicking off our 2012 compendium with our first-ever list of best reader’s poll ad libs. Because, obviously, you da bes’.
