A Great Big Thank You to Metroland Readers

Hey, somebody out there likes me!

Hey, somebody out there likes me!

We’ve uncorked the champagne, and the bubbly is flowing in celebration of the results of the Metroland Readers’ Poll in today’s issue of the weekly.

Metroland readers bestowed double honors on Nippertown.com, voting us as the Best Local Website for Arts, as well as the Best Local Website for Music.

And 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, behind our friends at Metroland.

We’d also like to congratulate our mascot Nipper, who garnered at least one vote in the write-in category of Best Local Celebrity Whom You’d Like To Marry for Their Money. (Void where prohibited by law.)

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

Best Arts Blog: Nippertown

Music writer extraordinaire Greg Haymes, musician/programmer Sara Ayers and phonics-boggling photographer Andrzej Pilarczyk—the team behind Nippertown—deliver quick hits of local arts and music news, tips and criticism on an often hourly basis. They’re neck-deep in the scene, and report about it with savvy enthusiasm and just enough snark to keep it amusing.

Update:
Sorry, my ego swept me away. We’d also like to thank our generous and insightful writers and photographers who regularly contribute to the burgeoning community/clusterf*ck that is Nippertown:

Haymes, Rick Bedrosian, Bowtie, Michael Hotter, Michael Hochanadel, J Hunter, Jason Lehr, Sebastien B., Joe Deuel, Joe Putrock, Jon Flanders, Bokonon, Tim Livingston, Bill Dhalle, Michael Eck, Andy Gregory and everyone who has sent us photos, reviews, artwork, stories, news tips, comments and words of encouragement.

And extra, extra special thanks to our advertisers who help keep the staff in dog biscuits.
