Best of Palm Beach This Year: Carpe Annum

Back in the early '90s, shortly after the Fire Ant crash-landed in Palm Beach, we hooked up with some other malcontents and put out an alternative rag called Red Herring. It was an alternative that looked alternative, mainly because it depended on the largesse of a string of eccentric businessmen who knew zilch about the newspaper biz and couldn't quite bankroll a sleeker, glossier product. We had a lot of fun.

Among the fun was an issue called "50 of Our Favorite Things," which wasn't exactly a "best of," more like, "We could bitch and moan about this place -- this Flori-duh -- but instead, we want to share with you some other stuff, stuff that enriches our lives here and might enrich yours."

On a similar note, here's a list for the coming year. (Reader comment, criticism, and suggestions more than welcome.)
