ABBIE Voting Is Here — And We’re Nominated

The nominations are in for the ABBIES, Arlington’s annual business awards. Now it’s time to cast your vote in categories like Arlington’s Best “Bargain” Restaurant, Arlington’s Best Happy Hour and Arlington’s Best Community-Based Nonprofit. (Disclaimer: the ABBIES are an ARLnow.com advertiser.)

This year, there’s actually a category that more important than the others, at least as far as we’re concerned. It’s the Best Place to Learn Something New category, featuring a take-no-prisoners competition between Arlington Public Library, Adagio Ballet, Fitness Break, Saffron Dance and yours truly, ARLnow.com.

That’s right, this site is nominated. Thank you to everybody who helped make that happen! Now it’s time to bring it home.

Go to the official voting page and, if you’re so inclined, tick the box next to our name.

The winners will be announced on Nov. 16.

    Before I bother with the link does one need to be a resident of Arlington County in order to vote?

    • Glebe Roader

      Nope. Just click on the link.

        Thanks! ARLNow gets my vote! I’m instead moving out-of-state in December, but when I was investigating relocating to Arlington this site was my #1 source of information. You all should be grateful you have such a “real-time” community news resource that doesn’t have to “invent” dull news like other local blogs do. I hope to consider starting a similar site in my new city!

    ARLnow.com has my vote. Great local coverage.

    I just voted, and I also recommended a few new options for next year that included:

    Arlington’s Best Place to Take a First Date
    Arlington’s Best Place to Worship
    Arlington’s Best Apartment Complex Customer Service
    Arlington’s Best “Mover and Shaker”

    Good luck, ARLNow!

    Can you create the “Cr-ABBIEs”. So we can vote on most annoying elements of Arlington? (And yes, I have voted for Arlington Now as the best too!) 🙂
