NORTHSHOREMAG.COM 10 AUGUST 2018 PHOTOGRAPHS BY BENOIT & MCCARTHY, DAVID WEST, AND T. KATES / EDITOR'S NOTE / WELCOME TO THE ISSUE We are so excited to bring you the 13th Annual Best of the North Shore (BONS) issue! We thought we would do something a bit different this year and not only highlight the best restaurants, shops, spas, salons, beaches, breweries, and bakeries in the region but also celebrate the people behind those winning places! I want to thank all those who were able to participate in the photo shoots for the opening of each BONS category. And I apologize for the ruse regarding what the photographs were actually for—we like to keep our winners under wraps until the magazine hits mailboxes. ank you all for being such good sports! BONS has become a recognized acronym on the North Shore, and has become the symbol of excellence in our community. e winners have earned their well-deserved award by striving for the best in everything they do. And with so many quality businesses north of Boston, the competition was stiff. We hope you will join us at the 5th Annual Best of the North Shore Event, taking place at the breathtaking Crane Estate in Ipswich on August 22. is year will be the biggest and brightest BONS Celebration yet! We truly bring the pages of the magazine to life under the stars with tastes of the best savory cuisine and decadent sweets and sips of the best wine, brews, craft cocktails, and more. is year the BONS Event will be in support of e Trustees of Reservations, the nonprofit organization whose mission is to "preserve, for public use and enjoyment, properties of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value in Massachusetts." is includes the 2,100-acre Crane Estate, complete with the Great House—a Stuart- style mansion atop Castle Hill with rolling lawns, gardens, and 365-degree views of the salt marshes and sea. I have been visiting the Crane Estate since I was a teenager, and to this day the property takes my breath away. We hope you will not only join us at the BONS Celebration but also become a member of the Trustees that acts as a steward to so many magical places across Massachusetts. Visit for information and to purchase tickets. I hope to see you there. And congratulations to all the 2018 Best of the North Shore winners! THE ENVELOPE PLEASE… Nancy E.
