It contains the long-awaited announcement of the winners and runners-up of the Best of Northfield 2008 (4 page PDF excerpt). The intro text reads:
We put it out there and you picked up the bait. Here are the results of the Northfield Entertainment Guide and Locally Grown readers poll of the Best of Northfield. Hundreds of ballots, more nominees than you can shake a stick at and one hands-down winner – that would be you for having such great stuff to choose from right here in River City! Now take a gander at our readers’ picks and get out there and enjoy! And make mental notes for January 2009 when we’ll do it again. Congratulations!
BAMG head honcho Rob Schanilec will be on KYMN 1080 AM radio at 12:30 pm today to announce and discuss the results… but you read it here first, of course, as we were partners with the NEG on this project.
I plan to have some photos later today.
In the meantime, feel free to discuss the results here. Moderate levels of gloating and whining will be tolerated.
The NEG team of experts will calculate the results on their Super Awesome Tally Calculator 5000 and print the results in the Feb. issue of the NEG.
I was working at an unnamed establishment (‘unnamed’ in the interest of fairness!) this morning when Nick Sinclair, project manager for this survey at NEG publisher By All Means Graphics, stopped by to drop off the “Vote for the best” poster, voting forms, and a drop box.
Update, 3:30 PM: As of today, ballot boxes are located at the Goodbye Blue Monday, Sisters Ugly, James Gang HideAway, Quality Bakery, Rueb ‘n’ Stein, Present Perfect, Monkey See Monkey Read, and Glass Garden. If you own a Northfield-area business and would like some ballots and boxes, contact us and we will get you the stuff.
