It's the Best of New Orleans, our biggest issue so far this year (136 pages!), in which we tallied all your votes for the city's superlatives in approximately 5,892 categories. The cover photo was taken by Greg Miles.

Also inside:

Dominic Massa on the legacy of Al Shea, who died Thursday after a career than spanned seven decades in New Orleans entertainment ...

Irma Thomas has a new collection of classic songs celebrating her 50th anniversary in music. Noah Bonaparte Pais rang the Soul Queen of New Orleans for a chat ...

• On the heels of a new study showing New Orleanians want to reexamine the idea of saving Charity Hospital, Clancy DuBos looks at the bigfoot strategies used by LSU to build a new hospital in Lower Mid-City and suggests LSU might want to learn some manners going forward ...

Jeremy Alford reports from Baton Rouge on coastal shrimpers who banded together to protest the lowest shrimp prices in decades. But can they afford to strike? ...

• And as lagniappe, we have stories on the Best Places to Get Wasted Before Lunch on Nickel and Dime Martinis, the Best Decorated House in the City, and "Byte Ponchartrain" advises an anonymous correspondent on the Best Way to Back Up Your Email.

See you on the newsstands Sunday, or online Monday. Commence to arguing over all the best-ofs, but remember: you picked 'em; we didn't.
