Balloting for the Bay Area Reporter's ninth readers' poll, the Besties, begins next week (Thursday, January 31).
Offering a special flavor of entertainment, your picks for best weekly, monthly and not-so-regularly events showcases the diverse aspects of Bay Area nightlife.
Here's a shout-out to the folks who tend to our nocturnal urges. Whether it's an evening's entertainment, a shot of booze, or a pinch of hip-swiveling pulchritude, we've got no shortage of winning personalities to celebrate.
This year's Besties winners in the weddings and destinations category.
The Bestie winners in the Services and Shopping category.
The winners in the Besties Community category.
It's spring and that means it's time for LGBTQs to dust off their winter blahs and get ready for summer. It's also time for the Bay Area Reporter's annual readers' poll, featuring the community's favorite people, places, and things.
Looking for a hot sex toy, or a hot sex partner to play with? Here, listed for your sexual pleasure, are this year's winners in the Besties' hot and sexy sexual categories.
Out of the dozen categories in our dining Besties, only one has a different winner than last year (and many #1s are multi-year repeaters), our diagnosis? Reflux. Is this a sign of blind LGBT loyalty or of an oddly narrow palate?
It's that time again when your old trusties at the Bay Area Reporter bestow the Besties, the reader's-choice LGBTQ Best of the Bay awards, for 2018.
One of the nicest things about the Besties is that it shows how vital our nightlife is in town. But don't just take the word of our readers for it. Along with the winners, check out the runners-up and run a contest of your own.
