Welcome to the Best of Bainbridge Island BY BRIAN KELLY

bkelly@soundpublishing.com

W

e’ve reviewed the candidates and behold — the favorability ratings are off the chart! The ballots have been gathered and the votes tallied for the Best of Bainbridge 2016. The people (aka readers of the Bainbridge Review and bainbridgereview.com) have spoken, and the Review is proud to announce Bainbridge Island’s bests from north to south. Looking for landslides? Well, it was another competitive contest this year, with many categories having closely packed winners advancing to the first-, second- and third-place spots. Once again, “Best of Bainbridge” voters had some tough choices to make because the Bainbridge brand is a mark of high quality already. Now it’s time to salute the winners in the Bainbridge Island Review’s “Best

of Bainbridge” — our annual survey that shines a spotlight on readers’ top choice on everything from the best boss, to the best romantic parking spot, to best community volunteer. Hundreds of readers participated in this year’s vote and the categories include shopping, services, food, fitness and sports, and more. It’s no wonder Bainbridge is a summer destination for tourists from the other side of the water and beyond. But residents are lucky to enjoy the “Best of Bainbridge” year-round. Readers will notice some repeat winners from previous years, but some new winners as well. Congratulations to all of the winners and finalists. Have a suggestion for new categories or other “bests” in the community? Please email Brian Kelly at editor@ bainbridgereview.com with ideas.

Thank you, Bainbridge! See you at

24th Annual Pumpkin Walk October 13 and 14!

Best of Bainbridge Place to watch the Fourth of July Fireworks

One of the best ways to show a little patriotic fervor is by firing off some fireworks. We’re not entirely certain on how the two became so inextricably linked with over-consumption of hotdogs, hamburgers and beer, but alas that is not ours to argue. For those who prefer to retain their digits (and possibly their lawns as well) by foregoing the ignition of explosives in their own yards, the Bainbridge Fireworks show is the next best choice for Fourth of July viewing. The event is put on every year by Halo Fireworks and is always a crowd pleaser, with a cascade of light and sound that invariably produces the necessary “ooh’s” and “ahh’s” from attendees. With such a display, the locations from which to view the spectacle are numerous. One could view from the water, outside the 1,000 foot safety radius but

for those who aren’t fortunate enough to own a boat, the next best option is Pritchard Park Beach. While the beach is another option, parking becomes an issue and it’s bit of a drive from downtown Winslow. The very best spot for watching the fireworks on the Fourth of July from the top deck of the Bainbridge - Seattle ferry. The boat usually waits until the show has concluded before departing or arriving to the dock, so riders have a perfect opportunity to have a gander at the spectacle. With a vantage well off the water, viewers don’t have to worry about some giant yacht floating in their way. The only downside to watching the fireworks from the ferry is that you have to buy a round-trip ticket, but we say it’s well worth it for the spectacular view.


In a small town like Bainbridge Island, the people-watching is always more entertaining in tourist season, but it’s all about getting the right spot. Tourists often come for things like ice cream from Mora’s, so there’s always a pack of the new comers up and down Winslow. They’re easy to spot, just like anywhere; sunglasses, wide eyes, backpacks, here and there a map, and always goofy smiles. It’s best to stay out of their way, for the tourist is easily distracted and may not see other people. So, the suggested perch is off to the side, either in a restaurant or at one of the benches off the main sidewalk. Blackbird Bakery has a counter facing the window inside,

The Best Place to People-watch

just out of the way but holding a perfect vantage point — entirely facing the street. In front of the bakery on a nice day, expect dogs to be left just outside the door when their people go inside. Not only does the spot provide ample viewing area, but puppies as well. What more could you want? Blackbird Bakery is also right on the corner of the seating area/walkway back to Mora’s, giving the bakery two viewing sides of the new people. Often in the summer there is also a musician on that corner. If you decide to sit outside at the bakery’s benches and umbrella-covered cafe tables, there’s a good chance you can appreciate some live music as well.

For the cool-loving person, the air conditioned inside area is much more appealing. You could settle in on one of the bar stools, and appreciate the bustle of people coming in, ordering, and chatting, all while enjoying the relief from the heat. Not to mention, this places you just outside of the craziness. If instead, however, you appreciate some summer weather, the tables outside are for you. Just be careful to guard yours, those are a hot commodity! You may want to move to one of the benches on the sidewalk, those often are open. Either way, you’ll be in the thick of it — if the small crowds Bainbridge gets during tourist season could be called thick.

For the proper people-watching experience, it is best to blend in. It is called people watching, not people directing. To place yourself in the position not to be asked for directions, you must be taken for one of them. Throw out the local artier and bring out the big sunglasses and backpacks. To further help yourself avoid this, stay away from the edges of the seating areas, where people walk by. Maybe even throw on a confused or awed expression every now and then. That’s all you need!

THE WINNERS ARE... THE 2017 BEST OF BAINBRIDGE

Best of Bainbridge - Best Store Pet: For people who love their pets, the inevitable dilemma of leaving your furry friend at home while you work your 9-to-5 is undoubtedly a cross that we all must bear. You miss your pet and - without any conceptual framework for the passage of time, or object permanence - your pet probably thinks you have ceased to exist entirely. Having the ability to interact with animals in the workplace used to be a luxury reserved only for farmers, zoo-keepers, veterinarians and members of congress, but some businesses here on Bainbridge have decided to buck this tradition in favor of a more pet-friendly office atmosphere. It was a hard decision to make but our pick for Bainbridge’s best office pet would have to be Cooper, the Property Group’s canine office assistant. Cooper is a well-mannered and distinguished chap, and he’s always

keen to greet visitors with a happily wagging tail. For purposes of full-disclosure we feel it’s important to point out that the

Property Group’s offices are directly below our offices at the Bainbridge Island Review and we see Cooper on a fairly regular basis.

Best of Bainbridge - Best Place to Eavesdrop We are all guilty of it, whether it’s intentional or not we all eavesdropped. Whether it’s a hushed conversation between two people seated at a nearby table, or someone using their cell phone on the bus doing their level best to make us horrifyingly aware of the most intimate details of their life, we all commit the sin of eavesdropping; And like Las Vegas, there are certain places here on the island that are especially well-suited to facilitate sinning. In the case of eavesdropping, one of the best places that we can think of to

overhear an otherwise private conversation is also one of the most heavily trafficked on the island. The ferry line is the perfect combination of pedestrian mass, personal space, commuter nuisance and banal familiarity that provides an environment where those waiting feel totally comfortable airing out their (sometimes dirty) laundry. Especially in the summer months, when the interior of a car waiting in the ferry line is utterly unbearable without the window rolled down, the ferry line in Winslow is one of the best places to

make like the NSA and pick up on a few stranger’s conversations. Conversation topics run the gamut, but try get in line following a twohour-delay for the most colorful ones. The heat mixed with the nuisance of wasting one’s time in a hot parking lot can produce tirades that would make a

sailor blush. So remember next time when you’re stuck in the ferry line, cursing your dead cell phone battery, that more entertainment is right outside your window, just roll it down and listen for awhile.
