the Best of the Best The Best of Northern Nevada Winners’ Guide The RN&R’s annual Best of Northern Nevada contest is our pride and joy. Every year, tens of thousands of readers vote for their favorite local people, places and things. We already announced this year’s winners in our massive Best of Northern Nevada issue back in August. But this week’s Winner’s Guide issue is something a little different: It’s a chance for the winners to address our readers directly—to say “thanks” or “we appreciate our supporters” or

“screw off, haters” or whatever else. It’s also a chance to give some recognition to the second and third place winners, who are listed online but not in the initial BONN issue. And perhaps most importantly, it gives readers a chance to have all the winners in a handy little guide that they can use all-year-round. We changed some of the voting rules this year and introduced a primary round. Those tweaks resulted in more upsets than usual—a lot of firsttime winners. Welcome to one of the most prestigious clubs in Northern Nevada, friends! But equal congrats are also due to the long-tenured winners who have kept their streaks alive. Folks, keep an eye out for those winning plaques. They’re a sign of quality. And local businesses: Beware of shady con artists trying to get you to buy framed plaques. Those people don’t work for us. We give away the winners’ plaques for free. And, everybody, beware of shady imitation contests. And thanks again to painter Jaxon Northon for the brilliant artwork. He took a very personal approach to each category and chose portrait subjects from his personal experience of Nevada history growing up here in the ’80s and ’90s. Huge thanks to everybody who took the time to vote this year. And congratulations to all the winners! Ω
