First, a big thank you to everyone who joined us last night at Casino Del Sol—readers, local business reps, former interns, staffers and freelancers and those we love and care for—the party for 2015 Best of Tucson® was a great success. How do we measure that? Well, we had a hell of a lot of fun and those who appreciated being chosen by our readers had fun, too.
However going into the evening, we realized there could be some issues today and sure enough this morning we were told there was an unavoidable production issue. We anticipated that this year's Best of would be inserted in this week's paper. Not going to happen. It will be in next week's issue on Oct. 29.
We apologize. We're disappointed. But good news is that, as promised, the winners were released and you can read every reader and staff pick online
. If you can't wait for a paper copy, we have a limited supply in our office. You are welcome to come by and pick one up.
Again, big congratulations to all the winners and finalists. Thanks for your patience. Chin up (that's what we're telling ourselves) and keep moving forward, Tucson.
