Shameless self-promotion: A while back, we launched a weekly newsletter, The Awesomeness Digest. Focused on food, restaurants, and culture, we have covered topics like eating Belizean rat; working as a cook in a Viking-themed park; the baffling concepts of Lørdagspizzaen and Fredagstacoen; other oddities.

Last call for Best of Spokane votes


Well, votes have been coming in a lot faster than we had expected, which, of course, is awesome, and therefore we will close our Best of 2011 voting sometime during the Thanksgiving break. Exactly when will it happen? No-one knows! Therefore, stragglers, you should run and vote.

We will reveal the top six-es of each category sometime throughout the next week and even throw a few surprises into the mix, because that's just how we roll.

As for the current standings, they are interesting: Some predictable leaders, but also some big surprises, particularly when it comes to number twos and threes. But, of course, we're merely talking standings here, and everything can change. Everything! Everything... So vote if you haven't.
