A Great Big Thank You to Metroland Readers

It's The Weekend!

The people have spoken…

Ah, yes, we’ve uncorked the champagne, and the bubbly is flowing in celebration of the results of the Metroland Readers’ Poll in today’s issue (Thursday, April 10) of our fave weekly.

And it seems at though we hit for the cycle this year, with first, second and third place finishes in media categories.

For the fourth consecutive year, Metroland readers bestowed top honors on Nippertown.com, voting us as the Best Local Arts Website. As Metroland commented, “We’re guessing Nippertown won — and they were the clear winner — because they’re timely and comprehensive. And cool.” Aw, shucks…

UPDATE, 4/14/14: Nippertown.com was also named Best Local Music Website, edging out our pals at Keep Albany Boring and CRUMBS.net. (Apparently, the results were misplaced and did not run in the print edition, but have now been added to the Metroland Readers’ Poll 2014 website.)

We’re just as proud of the results in the Best Local Arts Coverage category, where we were competing against the Big Boys of Print – Metroland, The Daily Gazette, The Times Union, etc. – and grabbed second place, just behind our friends at Metroland.

And Nippertown.com also grabbed a bronze medal in the Best Local Community Website category, snagging a third place finish behind our pals at All Over Albany and Keep Albany Boring.

So thank you, astute and discerning Metroland readers, for showing us some big love. And we promise to do all that we can to continue to make Nippertown.com your go-to click-through for all area music, arts and entertainment info.

    CONGRATULATIONS ! These recognitions are clearly the result of the relentless daily [and nightly] efforts of the Nippertown crew, as well as the continuous support of the contributors. Their love of our local art scene is apparent every day.

    Tim,
    Couldn’t have said it better myself. Thanks so much to the tireless efforts of the Nippertown contributors for keeping the arts scene reportage alive as the mainstream media finds less space and fewer reporters to cover it. The door is always open here at Nippertown, and if you’ve got something to say, we’re certainly willing to share your voice with our readers…

    Well earned. Nippertown is the first-call, go-to place for everything cool happening in the area. As always, nice work!
