BEST OF ROCHESTER '09: Introduction 

Step right up to the greatest show in town: City Newspaper's Best of Rochester 2009!

            Every yearCity asks Rochesterians to tell us their picks for the best restaurants, businesses, arts groups, people, places, and things in the Greater Rochester area. And this year it really was a circus: we had a record-breaking number of votes in both our primary AND final ballots, which made many of the categories much more competitive. Sure, there were a couple runaway winners (you folks really love the Dinosaur, Bob Duffy, and Abby Wambach, don't you?), but other races were real squeakers -- some categories were decided by fewer than 10 votes. That should be even more incentive for you to vote for your favorites next year.

            In addition to our readers' poll winners, City's critics chimed in with their favorite things about Rochester. Our critics' picks celebrate the lesser-known gems in our fair city; people, places, and events that make living here unlike living anywhere else. If you have your own thoughts about what makes Rochester so special, sound off in the comments section of this article at rochestercitynewspaper.com.
