This year’s Charleston City Paper Best of Charleston boldly goes where no other Best Of has ever gone before — into outer space. Joining us on our nearly 200-page journey into the outer reaches of the galaxy — and by the outer reaches of the galaxy, we mean Johns Island and, um, Hanahan — will be a team of Jedis, Trekkies, and little green men, who may or may not want to probe you. So go ahead and turn the page to see who City Paper readers selected as their faves. Beam us up!
