In 2012, we at Free Times asked ourselves a question: What if we took one week per year off from our regular edition and instead offered up a comprehensive guide to the city?
Well, the experiment worked. From a calendar of local festivals to tips on some hot local spots for shopping, dining and nightlife, the Annual Manual has been a big hit with readers. Even longtime Columbia residents have told us they’ve learned new things about their city from its pages.
Every issue of Free Times is designed to help you become more engaged with your city, but perhaps none does so on quite the scale as the Annual Manual. Thanks for reading. — Dan Cook
