Florida Weekly's Best of 2011 honors Dan Moser
Florida Weekly, December 28, 2011
FRANCE HAS THE TOUR. ITALY HAS TRAINS. ENGLAND HAS THE CANAL systems and Germany has the autobahns. But there is only one good way to travel our whimsical slip of subtropical coastline, stretching from south of Marco Island to north of Punta Gorda.
That’s right: By following Florida Weekly’s “Best Of.”
Here, you’ll see where and how to taste that vibrant American flavor called Southwest Florida. From mustaches to martinis, from real estate to righteous role models, from schmoozers to boozers to beautiful people, from city to country and fine dining to diner wining, we’ll point the way.
We’re not offering a review. We’re providing a parade of culture, a map you won’t get from the Chamber of Commerce. Good luck, have fun, and please accept the best of our good wishes for 2011.
BEST ADVOCATE WHO WON’T GIVE UP
If you’ve ever ridden the terrific bike paths or bike lanes in Lee County you’ve got but one person to thank: Dan Moser. Mr. Moser, who writes a biweekly pedestrian and biking column in Florida Weekly, has been a dogged advocate for those traversing Lee County on foot or by pedal power. He is a founding member of BikeWalkLee and serves on its steering group. Actually, he’s on so many committees and boards throughout the county and state — all advocating for the rights and safety of walkers and bikers — that we’ve lost track. So, if you see him wheeling down the street on his faithful Trek bike, give him a “thumbs up.” He deserves it.
