“I hope City Weekly doesn’t go all ‘little league’ on us and start creating a category for every restaurant in the valley,” wrote Rubio on CityWeekly.net. “Not everyone needs a trophy!”
Well, Rubio, we hear your concern, like Polonius to Halmet, that we shouldn’t “dull [our] palm with entertainment of new-hatch’d unfledg’d comrade.”
But we’re not doing that. Utah is so packed with awesome stuff, we need a lot of “Best of” categories to demonstrate how robustly awesome our beehive is.
Each year, we honor about 400 entities, people and places. But, Rubio, there are about 1,700 Utah restaurants and nearly 200 bars and clubs listed at CityWeekly.net, plus countless shops, people, organizations and outdoor attractions that are “the best” somethings.
We are not going little league—instead, we feel that the “Best of” issue is the best evidence that Utah is anything but.
