As is the tradition at Eater, our closeout of the year is a survey of friends, industry types, bloggers, and readers. We've already covered best standbys and top newcomers. Now it's time to describe 2012 in one word. Readers, please add your thoughts to the comments.

Q. Describe 2012 in one word.

Steve Hacker, writer and brand consultant, Better.

Melissa Duley, associate editor, Louisville Magazine: Locavorish

Kane Webb, editor, Louisville Magazine: From a food perspective -- interesting. From a political perspective -- exhausting. From an economic perspective -- slow (as in too damn)

Elizabeth Orrick, food writer, Bacon.

Antonia Lindauer, freelance food writer, That Vampin' Lady: Pretzelbread. Is that one word?

Kevin Harned, chief meteorologist, WAVE 3 and co-host, Secrets of Louisville Chefs Live: Tasty

Josh Moss, managing editor, Louisville Magazine: Epitasis. (Literally just opened a dictionary and pointed at one.)

Zach Everson, editor, Eater Louisville: Eater (also, shameless).
