Sunday Paper : Readers’ Choice Awards 2007

A friend just emailed me a link to The Sunday Paper’s website where they’re asking for nominations for their “Best of Atlanta” awards. You can click here to go to their poll (a link which is certain to stop working a month or so after this is posted), or you can continue reading to see how I voted.
