Along with the popular rankings, stories fill the pages with newfound information including how to enjoy a weekend game of cricket.

The best restaurants, shopping, services and attractions in Greater Victoria are all at your fingertips with Friday’s release of the 18th annual Best of the City.

From favoured kids clothing and shoe repair to preferred pedicure or pet clinic, the publication exposes the best of the best as chosen by the people who live in Greater Victoria.

Along with the popular rankings, stories fill the pages with newfound information including how to enjoy a weekend game of cricket.

“I come to watch the games,” said Jim Lodge who can be seen at games in Beacon Hill Park. “But so many people have questions. We made a  couple of ‘cricket explained’ guides.”

“People in Victoria are not always conscious of what lies beyond the city,” said Emily Carr aficionado Elaine Limbrick. “They need to come out here to the West Shore and discover the wonderful landscapes as Emily Carr did.”

Plus there’s the exclusive with Darth Fiddler.

The winners, determined through reader surveys, learned their fate June 28. Readers can find the 18th annual Best of the City, including the voted rankings, in select issues of today’s News or pick up a copy at 818 Broughton St. or 117-777 Goldstream Ave.
