It’s an annual tradition: We tip our hats to the best of what Santa Cruz has to offer. This year our readers scoured a list of more that 120 categories, selecting the top three winners in each.
The fashionable cocktail lounge, the venerable date-night institution, the yoga studio everybody loves, the cutting-edge graphic that’s given downtown a fresh edge—they all get props.
The winners of the 2012 Reader Survey are listed here, along with opinionated writeups from our often insightful writers and editors.
We hope readers will enjoy this and maybe even use it to discover some new favorites.
