Once again, we come to MauiTime’s biggest, most anticipated issue of the year. You’ve been waiting for it, and here it is: the 2012 Best of Maui issue.
In many ways, this is your issue. Your votes dictated who and what appear in the following pages. You, our loyal readers, made the calls on who serves the best burgers or which shop sells the best bikinis or what beach is best for barbecuing parties. You can cheer the selections that fill these pages, or you can complain, it’s your choice.
But what we hope you do is have fun with this issue. We certainly did, and managed to convince some of the island’s most talented tattoo artists to contribute some of their best artwork to the overall design. You readers spent a lot of time and effort telling us what you thought was best about Maui, and we wanted to return the favor and make the issue look as sharp as possible.
