    Giving your dog the very best can be done right here in Hillcrest.

    San Diego Magazine will be partying this week to celebrate its annual list of “best” things around town. Here are a few that caught our eye:

    BEST PLACE TO POLKA: Get your polka on (or your chacha, foxtrot or samba) at MacVittie’s Dance Studio in La Mesa, which is poised to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2010.

    BEST OFF-ROADING: Four-wheel and two-wheel sand junkies agree: It doesn’t get any better than Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area in Borrego Springs. The magazine considers it practically the Aspen of off-roading.

    BEST PLACE TO PRIMP YOUR POOCH: Where else but Fido & Co. in Hillcrest. Lucky pooches luxuriate in a range of services, from mud baths and Reiki massage to blueberry facials and “pawdicures.”

    BEST HANGOVER BREAKFAST: Forget the Advil; nurse a nasty hangover with the tasty breakfast grub served up at Honey’s Bistro & Bakery, a homey café on Coast Highway 101 in downtown Encinitas.

    BEST $1.50 LUNCH: Costco’s meal combo featuring a quarter-pound hot dog and soda takes the crown for the most satisfying cheap lunch.

    There are dozens of other categories in the full list inside San Diego Magazine.
