We asked you to tell us about your favorite restaurant, the best of shopping and the number ones in service. Most of you answered in a way that actually made sense, and for that, some of our great local businesses came out victorious.
Then again, some answers left us scratching our heads, laughing out loud or altogether speechless. We have compiled the best of the worst answers to our Best of Central Oregon survey, and in the process learned a few things.
What we've learned about you, dear readers: You're a very opinionated group with high self-esteem, though you tend to have a hard time spelling things correctly. Case in point: Trattoria Sbandati wins the most-misspelled business award! (Read over the correct spelling once again, and then try to get it right next year...)
