Thanks to all you Syracuse sleuths, we were able to solve the Case of the Best of Syracuse, and not a moment too soon. Our crack detective and his lovely sidekick got the ball rolling, and you brought it home, with an impressive number of votes, especially in our online balloting. Thanks to all of you who voted; next year all balloting will be online.
Within these pages you will find the results of all the balloting, as well as our editors’ takes on some of the hot news of the day, or unusual sights we notice around town. As always, we are open to suggestion, and welcome any ideas for new ballot categories or other feedback at: email@example.com.
Special thanks go to Boom Babies, 489 Westcott St., for the perfect vintage clothing and props they supplied for our Best of Syracuse photo shoot. Thanks also to McKenzie Macko and Ashleigh Greenough from McKenzie Elizabeth Salon, 1628 W. Genesee St., 399-4622, for the retro hair and makeup (We couldn’t have done without the hot-red lipstick on our female model, Syracuse New Times music editor Jessica Novak.) Special thanks to Jessica and to our male model, James Duval, who drove in from Utica for the evening photo shoot, and to photographer Michael Davis for having the vision, and then putting that vision on film.
Prizes will be awarded to readers who filled out ballots; winners will be randomly selected.
Best of Syracuse committee: Bill Brod, Michael Davis, Molly English-Bowers, Jessica Novak, James Rutkey and Lisa Whitmore. Best of Syracuse writers:
Kevin Corbett, Bill DeLapp, Molly English-Bowers and Jessica Novak; photographer: Michael Davis.
