I recently browsed the blog of a networking acquaintance, Carissa Roman of the PR Store, and she had a post with her picks for the best of several categories in 2008. Naturally, I disagreed with a few of the choices, and commented as such, but I thought I should create my own list and let you decide if you agree or not. My list will not be as extensive, but here goes:
Best of Lake Norman in 2008:
Best Cheeseburger – The Brickhouse Tavern in Davidson (Sorry, Carissa)
Best Pizza – Brooklyn South in Cornelius (Try the Nonna’s) (Carissa got this one right)
Best Breakfast Sandwich – Panera (The Vermont Cheddar is killer!)
Best Spicy Soup – Max & Erma’s Chicken Tortilla
Best Drive-Through Coffee – The Human Bean in Mooresville
Best Chinese Food – House of Taipei
Best Thai Food – Oxymoron!
Best Mexican Food – Who cares?
Best Meatball Sandwich – Vocelli’s, any location (you can pick it up and eat it like a sandwich)
Best Donut – Dunkin Donut’s Vanilla Creme Powdered Sugar
Best Acid Reflux Remedy – Prilosec OTC, one a day for the rest of your life
Best Weight Loss Program – Weight Watchers in Cornelius (or so I’ve heard)
Best Cardiac Care Unit – Presbyterian Huntersville to Downtown Charlotte
Best Walk Around the Lake – Jetton Park
Best New Fitness Center – Elite Fitness (no frills, just good equipment and helpful staff)
Best Bran Muffin – I don’t know. If you do, please let me know
There you have it…my Best Of List for 2008. Happy New Year to all of you!
