I always enjoy your creative answers in our annual Readers Choice poll. Our readers are clever if nothing else. This past year, some great things happened in our county including lots of great new dining and beverage spots, and some we said farewell to. The biggest thing I see, is that we are definitely becoming a beer town in case you haven't noticed. I certainly have. Last year in this space, I solicited your ideas on new categories to add. I received some great responses, and in fact this year, we did add quite a few. Just remember, I can only add them though if they have mass appeal. One I know I'm adding next year is a Food Truck category, as that is booming too with the beer movement. Sorry to all of those hard working folks we missed this year. We also added several new health and fitness related categories for 2016, and the response was positive. We are a healthy bunch here on the central coast, and we need to find creative and successful ways to counter that hops consumption. Finally, real estate has become so specialized by neighborhood knowledge, so we broke it down by city this year and I think the results were positive. Once again, I hope you enjoy this section as much as we do, and thank you to all who voted. The response this year was much greater than in prior years and for that we thank you! Congratulations to all of our winners this year! Be sure to patronize them in 2017 if you haven't already and we look forward to hearing from you in the future. Thanks for reading…and voting! T he Best of 2016! Steve Bennett sbennett@santacruzsentinel.com SANTA CRUZ SENTINEL READERS CHOICE THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2017 3
