Welcome to the Boston Phoenix’s fourth annual Best issue. This year, we’ve set our sights on the serious, the silly, and the sublime - from “Best place to get in touch with your inner Yoko” and “Best pseudo-sexual experience” to “Best taste of the Middle East - without actually having to go there.” In our online supplement, we cover our readers’ picks in Arts & Entertainment, City Life, Food & Drink, and Shopping categories, and offer our editors’ takes on the best of what Boston has to offer. As always, our Best issue also includes our salute to “local heroes” - individuals and organizations working to make a difference in the city.
