Thirty years of the Best of Denver, told by cartoon

For thirty years, we've been compiling the top things to do, see, eat, visit and more in our annual Best of Denver issue. In that time we've had some pretty unusual categories, running the gamut from the Best Bus Line to Best Obscene Phone Call Reported to Police. To celebrate three decades on the case, cartoonist Noah Van Sciver gathered and illustrated thirty of the most notable awards we've given out throughout the years. Check out his picks below.
