The Ithaca Times Best of Ithaca Readers Poll is one of the longest such annual surveys in New York State. Now in our 36th year, the original and first began at the San Francisco Bay Guardian 43 years ago. Veterans to BOI know that we’re always changing up the categories, so that no shoe, sub sandwich or sycamore tree can ever get complacent and secure. From year to year, you never know who will win what, and who we’ll be calling with good news.
Here are the categories for 2018. Winners and their comments can be found at one of the following links:
Awards for best pizza slice, best sports bar, best daily specials, etc.
Awards for best local actor, best dentist, best massage therapist, etc.
Awards for best restaurant for visitors, best restaurant service, best new restaurant, etc.
Awards for best Farmer's Market booth, best mani/pedi, best barbershop, best new business, etc.
Ithaca brought their A-game when it came to advice for Mayor Svante Myrick and the best ways to fit in, or stand out, in Ithaca. For the record, the Ithaca Times can not endorse all of these answers.
