Best of Charlotte 2013

Sure, the Queen City might rest on the opposite coast from the City of Angels, but there's no reason we can't add a little Los Angeles movie magic to our lives. So for this, our 26th annual BOC issue, we've opted to pay tribute to the cinematic love stories that have moved us over the decades. It's an apt comparison, since this special edition is all about bestowing our love and admiration on the people, places and things that represent the best the city has to offer. And in those few categories where we take potshots at what displeased us over the past 12 months ... well, just think of them as examples of tragic heartbreak, tearjerkers of the highest order.
