Winning: Rick Sebak is a Pittsburgh favorite in the 2014 Readers' Poll

Every year at this time, our readers tell us about their favorite Pittsburgh things. Sometimes they celebrate the same things they loved last year, and sometimes they find new things to adore.

And of all the best-of-the-best winners noted here, and the friendly arguments sure to follow, there is one undeniable truth: Pittsburghers love Rick Sebak.

After all, he is the iconic local filmmaker who helped spark our Kennywood Memories and stoke our love of Things That Aren't There Anymore. During our photo shoots, he drew a crowd everywhere he went.

Our readers honored Sebak in two categories in this special issue, and we're not surprised: He matches the respect for a Steelers win, an Andrew McCutchen long ball and a great locally crafted beer, while tapping this town's affection for parking chairs, a chipped-chopped-ham sandwich, fireworks and a wedding cookie table.

Quite frankly, Rick Sebak is the best, so it's only fitting that he's your tour guide for this year's Best of Pittsburgh.
