Help me pick the best new bars of 2009
Lordy, lordy, it's December already, which means it's open season on End-Of-The-Year lists. And since I know how much everybody loves lists, I'm going to whip up a few of 'em.
Let's start with the Best New Bars of 2009. I'd like to pick the Top Five New Bars of 2009, but to do it, I'm going to need your help.
I sifted through the Midnight Sun digital archives (which look something like this), and came up with a bunch of nominees. I'm sure I'm missing some, so let me know which ones aren't on my radar.
It's going to go down like this: You pick one of these bars (or nominate your own, as long as it opened in 2009), and tell me a couple reasons why you think it should make the Top Five. Reasons are important.
As you'll see, some of the nominees are both restaurants and bars. If you can, focus on the drinks and bar scene first and foremost. Food is for the weak.
Here are the nominees ...
