Welcome to our annual "Best of Brick" week. Over the next five days, we'll be running some of our most insightful, well-read and—let's face it—favorite stories from the past 12 months. We'll be back to a full posting schedule on Monday, December 29th. So pour a glass of eggnog, kick up your feet, and read on.
Brick Underground articles occasionally include the expertise of, or information about, advertising partners when relevant to the story. We will never promote an advertiser's product without making the relationship clear to our readers.
