The Best of South Florida: The Best of 2002
From Best Deli to Best Dog Groomer. From Best Manicure to Best Movie Theater. Over the course of this year, we have tried to introduce you to the Best of South Florida. But tonight, we have counted up the top vote-getters for 2002.
(WSVN) -- Suffering through the sweltering sun on South Florida's Best Beach...
"You've got you're gay crowd, straight crowd, even the topless crowd."
To Florida's frozen tundra for the Best Christmas Trees...
"You've got to get bundled up, ready for the woods, saw in hand and go cut your own down"
We worked hard to bring you the Best of South Florida every week.
"But if you want to look and feel like a celebrity than you have to try our viewers top choice."
And we'll admit it, there was no shortage of fun and friends along the way.
"Hey girl what lassie, Craig Steven's is stuck in a well in desperate need help."
"and that's because here you find toys"
"What did you think I'd be naked."
But when it comes to The Best of The Best of South Florida...
We've counted up the top three overall vote getters... covering everything from restaurants to relaxation.
"From your aroma therapy, eucalyptus steam, to your candle lit relaxing massage room, the Best Massage in South Florida may look like mere pampering but the hundreds of devoted clientele here at Massage Therapeutic Spa tell you, it's a life altering experience."
So life altering, even a massage therapist makes this Hollywood spa his top choice.
"It's much more intense here and the therapists are all unique in their own styles."
"The massage therapy is wonderful."
But if you find food wonderfully therapeutic, than head to Shorty's on South Dixie Highway where they always¤0 last shot in pkg is cuteśserve up the Best Barbecue.
"As far as I'm concerned if you've been eating here for 50 years, you're a loyal customer and we're doing something right."
You'll find a magnificent menu with many irresistible items.
"Probably our biggest sellers are pork sandwiches and our baby back ribs, we have our own coleslaw which you know people come from practically from all over the world to have, the corn on the cob is a favorite with everybody."
But be warned, just one bite can be addictive.
"We have day to day customers that eat in this restaurant 5 and 6 times a week"
And speaking of addictive... when it comes to the most deleicious donuts - it doesn't get any sweeter than Krispy Kremes.
"Because whenever you see one of these boxes , you know what's inside won't last very long, so what makes Krispy Kreme donuts so popular, well just like the sign says you can get them hot any time of day."
Krispy Kreme says the secret is in the dough.
Whether they're frosted or filled, these donuts cool on a conveyer belt that circles the store.
"It brings out all the flavors when they're freshly made and you can't get it any better than that."
"I love my donuts, that's all I can say."
