Best Category We Forgot

Staff Pick

For the past few years we’ve ended our 180-category or so Best of Missoula online ballot with an open-ended question—Best Category We Forgot—and each year we’ve been tickled by your senses of humor and pleasantly surprised at the number of worthy suggestions. This year proved no different, as the answers ranged from “Best Glory Hole” (no answer added) to multiple votes for “Best Burrito.” We use the more serious submissions to help form future ballots, which means you could see something like “Best Distillery,” “Best Concert of the Year,” “Best Market Vendor” or “Best Medical Marijuana Dispensary” in 2016, but probably not “Best Reason to Call Jon Krakauer’s Book Horrible Even Though You Haven’t Read It.” Perhaps something more abstract (“Best-Kept Secret”) or artistic (“Best Poet”) could sway our Best of Missoula panel, or maybe they’ll be hungry for something savory (“Best Soup”) or sporty (“Best Sports League”). However the ballot changes next year—and it does change subtly every year—we’re pretty sure this last ballot question will remain.
