Greetings, knights and fair maidens. You made your nominations. You cast your votes. Now, it’s time to find out exactly who came out on top in the Charleston City Paper’s annual Best of Charleston Readers’ Picks. Once again, we’ve added in runners-up in every category so you can see who the closest competition was. In the end, nearly 1,000,000 votes were cast in this year’s Best of Charleston contest, and over 25,000 people voted. How about that! Anyhow, enough with the talk. It’s time to don our fairy wings and enter Never, Neverland.

Jack's Fairy Tale of Charlestowne
Jack's Fairy Tale of Charlestowne 'Let me begin...'

Once upon a time, Jack — a young man of humble birth whose ancestors had never quite saved up enough to warrant a family name worth remembering — found himself before the Constable. Sworn to uphold the law in this quaint seaside town, the Constable twisted the corner of his mustache as Jack stood before him, dressed in tattered sackcloth barely fit for a worn-out mare put to pasture, no less a man. — Dustin Waters
