Our Top 10 Articles from 2016

This year was an exciting year in Fort Wayne! We saw several new businesses and events come to our city. Take a look at our top articles for 2016! First up, clocking in at number ten, our article on the eighth annual Taste of the Arts Festival by Stephen J. Bailey was a hit with our readers this year. Keep an eye out in 2017 for information about the next festival (and keep supporting the arts)! Bravas, tacos and our new “Food & Drink” writer Reneta Thurairatum. What more could you want from an article? Checking in at number nine for the year, The Tacos Are Coming at Tacos Bravas. At number eight, the “Food & Drink” series continued to be popular as Reneta gave us the lowdown on GnomeTown Brewing Co. in June. At number seven, Reneta checked in with Junk Ditch Brewing Company to get a taste of their entry in Fort Wayne’s Weekend Brunch Game in July. Information about food and dining options was popular all year in Fort Wayne. Coming in at number six, Travis Bartlett and the team gave us their picks for the top breakfast and brunch spots in the city in February! And coming in at number five, Rhonda Ladig Moxter gave us a rundown of Thanksgiving Dinner Alternatives in Fort Wayne. Coming in at number four is Rivers Relaxation, A New Way to De-Stress in Fort Wayne by Leslie Snare.
