Best of Savannah 2011: The Winners! 

At long last, here are the winners of this year's Best of Savannah 2011 contest, as voted by you, the readers of Connect Savannah.

Regular readers know the drill, but for newbies, here's how the issue goes:

Winners get brief staff-written blurbs, with runners-up getting a mention by name only. (Being a runner-up is prestigious in itself and often is a signal of an up-and-coming person, organization or business to keep your eyes on for future polls.)

Some winners - at the editorial staff's discretion - receive extended profiles. The writers of these extended profiles are indicated in italics after the profile (longtime contributor Robin Wright Gunn helped us out with a few this year).

Generally speaking, the winners who get extended profiles are new or otherwise particularly noteworthy winners (e.g., Green Truck, AASU Tennis). Some extended profile subjects were chosen because they represent categories which are newly featured this year (e.g., Best Cosmetic Surgeon).

So here there are in their separate categories -- this year's winners of the Best of Savannah 2011 Readers Poll:

Arts & Entertainment

City Life

Politics & Public Affairs




Recreation, Health and Beauty

Shopping and Services
