Best of 2012
Our annual fest of the best. It'a a page-turner that highlights shopping, dining, beauty, kids, politics and fun. Not necessarily at the same time.
From a bike ride sans pants to the most indulgent pork belly incarnation, we’re back with the best Milwaukee has to offer. We’ve delivered our annual “Best Of” picks with gusto since 1982, and our 31st time shouldn’t be any different. Well, maybe a little different. Because it’s the exceptions that elevate our latest effort to a new level. For instance, we couldn’t agree who baked the best cupcake, so we let you decide (and nearly 300 of you did). Voting was close and there were crumbs aplenty, but you didn’t let us down. Also, throughout this story of superlatives, take special notice of the augmented reality icons. Then use your mobile device and the Actable app to enhance your experience. So what makes these shops, artists, bands, politicians, restaurants and everything else worthy? Their refreshingly new, exciting and sometimes hilarious (see: Best Coffee Shop Name) spin on service to the city. No plain Janes here.
