REDUX CHECKLIST Falling in love again— with the county’s finest in food, appliances and customer service...


hile it may seem like only yesterday when our fair county’s 200,000-plus residents received the announcement of the Pacific Sun’s 2010 Best of Marin winners, it was actually six months ago that the news broke about the year’s finest in food, entertainment, clothing and housewares. But half a year is a long time to store the nearly 100 of our readers’ poll standouts in one’s memory banks, and since the key to any great list is in the checking-it-twice part, we’re offering our 2010 Best of Marin Redux—a comprehensive directory of Marin’s year in excellence. And since the holiday shopping and dining season is just around the corner, we’ve tidied the winners’ list into a more concise size—perfect for clipping out and posting on the fridge. Best of Marin Redux kicks of with our vaunted Hall of Fame, which includes businesses that have won their categories five times consecutively— and are taken out of contention for two years. So cheers to our 2010 winners. And mark your calendars for Best of Marin 2011—voting begins Dec. 27. —Jason Walsh
