If you are in search of the best place on the North Shore for alfresco dining, the ultimate facial, or who to call for doggie daycare, the August 2015 issue of Northshore magazine delivers.

The 10th annual “Best of the North Shore” (BONS) Awards celebrates the magazine’s editorial and reader picks for the North Shore’s best food, nightlife, entertainment venues, shopping, spas, and services. Each year, local businesses and events are nominated and voted on by editors and readers of Northshore. Over 120,000+ votes were tabulated to determine this year’s Readers’ Choices award and more than 250 organizations are recognized as BONS 2015 winners across 170 sub-categories. Several new subcategories were also added this year, including: donut, gluten free, and tennis shop.

“We assembled an incredible BONS committee this year to help vet the Editors’ Choice Awards,” says Nancy E. Berry, editor of Northshore. “From fashionistas to food critics, our team was tasting and sampling for months to compile the Best of list.”

“The BONS issue is our most popular issue every year and one in which we take an incredible amount of pride creating,” comments Kelly Schetzsle, publisher for Northshore. “Later this summer, we will honor the winners and celebrate with the community at our annual BONS celebration. We look forward to recognizing the businesses that make the North Shore of Boston the best place to call home.”

2015 BONS Readers’ and Editors’ Choice winners will be recognized at the 2nd Annual BONS Celebration, taking place on Wednesday, August 26 at Misselwood Estate in Beverly. General admission and VIP tickets are available for purchase for $75 and $125.
