New Times’ readers shredded it in this year’s annual Best Of SLO County readers poll. They told us who their faves were and we put them together in this outrageously massive issue for you to enjoy. And to make things just a skosh sweeter, it's our 30th Best Of issue, so we decided a little throwback would be appropriate. Each of our sections is headed up by a business or organization that has been down with the SLO County community for as long as or longer than we have. Like total bosses, they gave us images from yesteryear and we scrapbooked them together with those from today.
