The ‘Best of’ awards recognize magazine readers’ selection of the area’s best in dining, night life, personalities, shops and services.
Last night’s celebration marked the last time general manager and editor Linda Wittish will oversee the event and the selection of winners. She is retiring at the end of September after almost 14 years with the magazine.
Winners in the various ‘Best of’ categories were selected by readers’ votes alone. No duplicate or photocopied ballots were accepted, and those without a verifiable name and address were disqualified.
As the magazine’s editors said in its September/October edition: “Savannah magazine’s readers — connoisseurs, professionals and household decision makers — know the best when they see it.”
