Well, dear readers, the time has come yet again for you wax rhapsodic/philosophical/funny about all your favorite local businesses, people, places, trends, and more as part of our annual Best of the East Bay poll. This year's theme is (the new) Authentic, by which we mean to highlight all the people, products, and services that are considered “authentically” East Bay, perhaps in a new way. Votes will be tabulated by our crack team of elite statistical analysts* and winners announced online and wherever fine newspapers are
