Which local restaurant has the best takeout? What’s the best sledding hill in Arlington? Where should you go to board your pet?
Those are a few of the questions that ARLnow readers will help to answer as we launch The Arlies, Arlington’s community awards.
The Arlies will honor the top local places, people and organizations in Arlington, as chosen by a diverse swath of the community. At a time when many local residents and businesses are struggling, the Arlies provides a way to highlight some of the good things happening in our backyard, while bringing recognition to those whose dedication to service has earned the community’s trust.
Rather than running once a year, the Arlies will run quarterly, with different categories depending on the season, making it easier to vote and follow along.
The first round of voting for the inaugural 2021 Arlies will kick off next month. We’ll tally the votes and announce the winners soon after.
This will be strictly a reader-driven award, with readers and not editors choosing their favorites in each category. We’re excited to announce this new feature today and to bring it to you shortly after the holidays. Stay tuned!
