Editor's Note 

We're getting close to that traditional pastime here at Weekly World Central when we are consumed with everything Best of Tucson™. We're finalizing the online ballot and voting process, and will let you know when you can let us know what's what—really its that one time of the year that we turn to you to tell us what the best tortillas are in town or the best place to hike with your kids.

All year we tell you what we think, but this time, no ... for once, as difficult as it is to do, we shut up. Sure, over the years we may have disagreed with you, but we went with that fakey conservative radio personality as the best in town or the chain restaurant as the best of something (so terrible, we drove it out of our collective newspaper memory). However, this year, we'll be returning to staff picks, something missed last year—so I guess you'll still hear from us even if you don't want to. Staff picks tend to be more focused, and sometimes fall into the category of strange and beautiful. Just like you, which is probably why we love Tucson so very much. We went to our Facebook feed and asked followers for suggestions on new categories and more for Best of Tucson™ 2015, but here's an official request—your invitation to suggest new categories. Send them to tucsonweekly@tucsonlocalmedia.com. We can't wait to hear from you.

  • Make Womb for Daddy

    In today’s world, you learn to expect the unexpected. And speaking of expecting, Tucson Salvage columnist Brian Smith brings us the story of Cain Pierce, a trans man who is pregnant with his first baby. The mom, of course, is a trans woman and former local drag queen. It’s a complicated story, but as the wise man once said: Life finds a way.

  • Nine Years Later

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been nine years since those gunshots rang out on a clear Saturday morning in Tucson, taking six lives and forever changing many others. This week, associate editor Jeff Gardner writes about how the friends of the youngest victim of the shooting, 9-year-old Christina-Taylor Green, are honoring her in the year she would have graduated high school.
