Best of Missoula 2018

Welcome back, dear friends, to the Best of Missoula, the Indy’s biggest issue of the year and, as far as we’re concerned, a veritable annual bible of all that is superlative about this exceptional little town in which we’re lucky enough to live. It’s the one issue each year when we hand over the reins — oh for god’s sake with the Ye Old West references already — to you, the readers, to tell us what you know. About french fries and sushi and breakfast burritos. About dentists and chiropractors and physical therapists. About fly-fishing guides and church choirs and shoe stores. And some 175 other hotly contested categories of competition, including some new ones this year that wouldn’t have flown in Ye Old West, like Best Twitter and Best Instagram.

And because some things never seem to change, we’ve done another something new this year. We’ve instituted a Hall of Fame. To get in, you have to have won your category an astounding 15 years in a row. You know what you have to do to win Best of Missoula 15 years in a row? You have to be a solidly badass business that doesn’t ever let its customers down. Missoula has quite a lot of you, and you deserve the extra recognition this year. Thanks for sticking around.

We’ve also tossed in a few Staff Picks, because some things just can’t be categorized.

The Indy’s Best of Missoula issue is Missoula’s longest- running reader poll. And it’s never been rigged to suit our egos or advertisers. Because this is your Best of Missoula. And because of you, we think it’s Missoula’s best. We worked hard on it, and we’re pretty proud of it. But it’s you who makes it what it is. You should be proud too.
