Today is the last day to help your favorite local businesses win an ABBIE Award. Online voting for the annual awards, which honor Arlington’s best businesses, ends at midnight.
ARLnow.com has been nominated for an ABBIE, under the category “Arlington’s Best Place to Learn Something New.” However, we’re facing tough competition from the category’s reigning champ, the Arlington Public Library system.
Our odds are especially long, considering that the library isn’t any old small business — it’s a large government entity with nine locations around town, dozens of staff members and thousands of customers — who receive its services for free. Plus, while the general public is limited to one vote per computer, ABBIE rules specifically state that publicly-accessible computers at the library are exempt.
Not that we’re complaining or anything.
Good luck to the nominated businesses and organizations in all 15 categories — even our own!
