Every July, Diablo pulls out all the stops to celebrate the best of the East Bay. And given how enormously challenging this year has been so far, there’s more reason than ever to honor the people, places, and things that make our region so special. Our editors had the daunting challenge of selecting their favorites amid massive uncertainty, and so did the thousands of readers who generously
shared their picks with us. Of course, many of our honorees had to close their businesses during the shutdown, and we truly hope they’re back in operation by the time this issue is printed—we can’t tell you how much they’ve been missed! Here, we 
salute the East Bay’s shining stars and look forward to their continued success.
