Where’s the best view in Revelstoke? Who serves the best pizza? Where’s the best place to go on a first date, or on an anniversary date? How about Revelstoke’s most dedicated volunteer? Or who’s the best mechanic in town? Which is your favourite spot for a quick lunch?
These are a few of the questions we’re hoping to have answered in our Best of Revelstoke reader survey, which you can find on page 12 of this issue. Our goal is to find out what you residents love most about your home.
The Best of Revelstoke is designed to reflect all aspects of life here. It’s about the best food and the best customer service. The best businesses and the best people. The best outdoor activities and the best places to unwind. We want to celebrate the best Revelstoke has to offer, in the minds of our readers.
Sure, you could go on Yelp or Trip Advisor and read the ratings there, but there’s no question about the best local politician on those sites. Or the Revelstokian you’d most like to share dinner with.
You also get reviews from tourists and locals, which is great, but we want to hear from the people who live here, the people who have gone to the Modern and La Baguette and Sangha Bean and Timmy’s for their morning coffee and decided on a favourite after years of diligent taste testing.
We want to hear from you because you’ve hiked every trail and you know exactly which one you’ll bring your out-of-town guests on when they come visit. And you know where you’ll go to share a plate of nachos afterward.
You may be loathe to give away your favourite spots, afraid they’ll become more crowded. Don’t think of it that way — think of it as a celebration of the best the community has to offer.
The survey will run in the paper and online throughout July and August, so there’s plenty of time to get your answers in. We’re hoping for as many responses as possible so the results truly reflect what Revelstokians like.
You can answer one question or all 52. Do you really want to win the title of best hairstylist? Get your friends to vote for you as many times as possible. The winners will get a certificate to put on the wall, and they’ll also get bragging rights
The results will be published in the fall issue of The View, our lifestyle supplement that will come out September 10.
So, who’s the best athlete? Which is your favourite Mt. Begbie beer? Who’s the best yoga instructor? How about the best non-profit? Which Revelstokian is closest to sainthood?
You have until August 28 to let us know.
