Snacking on Readers Choice Nominations
It’s that time… Readers’ Choice Nominations! Go here to give your nominations!
So many people and businesses to nominate.
So many friends who do the same. damn. thing!
Well, I’m not going to make it easy for you, but maybe I’ll remind you of the people you can nominate.
Best New Business
You have a good choice of selection for this: Love Jones Couture, The Gentry, The Crazy Bull, The Wall, Fresh Produce Records, Command Zone Games, Dysfunctional Tees and Things, The Embellished Wedding, Le’Face, Pink Chief, Posh Clothing Boutique, TailsSpin, Pure Balance Yoga, and many more. These are just the places that have opened downtown.
Favorite Local Hero
Who is doing something that makes the community better, is a crusader, and is also an all around nice person. There are many people who should be recognized. Chris Horne (despite leaving town, is still working to help Macon be great), Heather Bowman Cutway, Andrew Silver, Yolanda Latimore, Alex Morrison, Heatherly Wakefield, Stacy Harwell, Jonathan Dye, Koryn Young, Mechel McKinley, Chris Floore… The list could go on, depending on what is important to you locally. Even Anthony Harris AKA Ant is a local hero to some.
Favorite Local Celebrity
I’m going to vote for the wall at Roasted. Gone but not forgotten. For the rest of you, you have the likes of Mark Ballard, Michael Felton, Chase Ambrose, Terrell Sandefur… take your pick or add more!
Macon’s Best DJ
DJ Shawty Slim, DJ KD, DJ Fubu … please add a DJ to the comments if you think they should be considered, but please don’t pick the name of someone who uses other people’s mixes as if they are his own and walks around like some kind of DJ Push Play.
Favorite Local Blogger
Bungalow Kitchen, Suck It, Martha, Make It Work, Molly, Snacking on Macon (you’re reading it!), Roger Riddle’s Earshot – add other blogs if you know someone who deserves to be recognized.
