Once again we’ve been chosen by you readerfolk as the Best Of something in the News & Review’s annual contest! Specifically, we are the 3rd Best Web site (in a tie with sacbee.com, hilariously) and the 2nd Best Blog, in another heartbreaking loss to the formidable Heckasac who can of course be found at heckasac.blogspot.com. Taking home top honors in the Best Sacramento Web site category is none other than … The Sacramento News & Review. Congratulations on winning your own contest!
And a special sexxy congratulations to Stickie, whose alter ego “Daniel F. Scott” was named #2 Best sexy Sacramentan! (And as a reminder, catch Stickie’s sexxy brain in action at The Shack tonight and every Wednesday night for trivia!)
Two more good notes: From a cursory glance it seems like the SN&R readership is finally moving away from voting for chain establishments in many categories. And congratulations to Boon Boon Cafe, my favorite restaurant, for taking home #2 in the Best takeout category. If you haven’t yet had takeout from Boon Boon, make sure to hit them up this weekend for some knockout Thai.
Now for the bad news: our showing represents a downgrade from last year, when we were named #2 Web site and #1 blog. Rather than do any scientific analysis of the reasons behind our ratings decline, we’re planning to recast the entire writing staff using super-hott 24-year old actors, CW-style. Well, all of us except Stickie, of course…
