One of the pleasures of being editor of San Diego Uptown News is witnessing the pride that local residents have of the individual neighborhoods that they call home.
Uptown News covers almost a dozen neighborhoods and our masthead mentions Old Town, Mission Hills, Bankers Hill, Hillcrest, University Heights, Normal Heights, North Park, South Park, Golden Hill, Kensington and Talmadge.
So when it comes time for our annual awards, the Best of Uptown, it is always interesting to learn our readers’ favorite places to eat and drink, play and shop.
We thank our readers for supporting local businesses and taking the time to recognizing them through their voting.
