The year of 2012 is nearly over (as is everything else if the Mayans are right about December 21st) which means that it’s time once again to round up our favorite people, places and things of the year in our annual survey! This is where we ask you, our loyal readers, to decide what stands out as the absolute best of the best when it comes to local restaurants, artists, festivals, events and other cultural happenings that went down during 2012.

This year we’re sweetening the pot with a bonus incentive to complete the survey and giving away a Columbus Underground Gift Basket to one lucky random survey completer. The package includes a Patron level membership to the Wexner Center, an Annie Leibovitz T-Shirt, a Wexner Center Tote Bag & Mug, a signed copy of the Breakfast with Nick book and 2 Tickets to The Drexel Theatre!

So without further ado, let’s get to it!
