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.
