Best of Arkansas 2012

From subwoofers to spas, the readers of the Arkansas Times have spoken, and provided, for the 17th year running, a list of Arkansas's best. Besides the results for the zillions of categories voted on, the Times offers several features, and we might just win a Pulitzer with one of them. That's because this year, the Times blows the lid off the mysterious Forbidden Hillcrest, scoring an interview with reclusive blogger Paul Carr.

Other stories: Where to drop several large on audio equipment for your car. A profile of Amasa Hines, a band that has everything going for it. A defense of the River Rail, which our voters named Best Misuse of Public Funds but which makes our writer David Koon misty-eyed. The place men have gotten their pants for nearly a century and will for a century more. Onion rings and how they crumble.

Of course, there are our own personal picks, where readers will discover the best place to see painted buntings and big cats and the best mobile phone game invented by an Arkansas company and the best place to buy sardines while you're waiting for a prescription to be filled and best place to find a cheap desk.
