Thank you to everyone who voted for me for the Eugene Weekly’s Best Blog award. I came in second! The EW! Blog came in first and a ‘zine with which I was unfamiliar, Urinal Gum, came in third. I like the idea of being between EW! and a urinal. That might make me the urinal cake.
I also wanted to put the shout out (again) to Best Restaurant, Belly, and Best New Restaurant, Off the Waffle. I did the write-ups for these guys, and I’m so pleased that they won, because I really do feel that they represent the best our little town has to offer in yumyums.
One more delight I feel I should share is in the Best of the Ballots category:
BEST WAY TO IMPROVE EUGENE
Fix the fucking bike lanes before somebody gets killed. Also, a Lebanese deli would be rather sweet.
Now, there’s a man/woman after my own heart. My husband bikes to school, and I worry about him more, now that the rain is here and leaves are piling up in the bike lanes. By the way, I’ve been hearing good things about the falafel at Mommy’s Pastrami and Falafel. Not a Lebanese deli, but it might take the edge off.
