MADISON, WI — Highly anticipated every year, Madison’s Favorites — from restaurants to furniture shops and everything in between — will be revealed in Isthmus Annual Manual, which hits the streets Thursday, August 20.

In the latest edition, test your Madison knowledge with a quiz, explore Madison’s popular neighborhoods in the feature “The Lay of the Land,” and see who Isthmus readers picked in the Madison’s Favorites poll. Some new categories this year are Specialty Food Source, Most Innovative Menu, Electronica Band, and Place to Exchange Video Games, plus all of the classic categories such as Favorite New Restaurant and Favorite New Band. The unpredictable Odds & Ends section lists readers’ quirky suggestions for Madison-centric ringtones and more.

This is the 29th year Isthmus has produced the original and best guide to Madison, and the 27th year Isthmus has asked its readers to name their faves.
