This is Buffalo Spree magazine’s thirteenth annual Best Of list. The list covers dining, theater, visual art, music, sports (somewhat), politics (barely), media, shopping, services, nature, architecture, and more.

 

As always, we have used a combination of public poll results and expert panels to arrive at the final winners. We have high expectations for our list and need to make sure that the recipients are truly deserving—not just winners of popularity contests.

 

We hope you agree; we also hope we’ve added to your running lists of places you have to try and things you have to do.

 

The descriptions of winners were written by Spree’s freelance writers and panelists, as follows: Bruce Adams, William Altreuter, Jeff Biesinger, Bruce Eaton, Ron Ehmke, Erin Habes, Donna Hoke, Jessica Keltz, Meg Knowles, Elizabeth Licata,  Nancy J. Parisi, Maria Scrivani, Christa Glennie Seychew, Wendy Guild Swearingen, and Emily Tucker

 

You can take a peek at our Best Of issue below. To get the complete list, get your hands on this month's issue of Spree before it's gone! (You can pick up a copy at these locations.)
