...the following individuals/entities for making Baltimore Magazine's 2009 "Best of Baltimore" list:
BEST FESTIVAL - CityLit Festival (thanks also to Baltimore Magazine for the nice little shout-out to, among others, Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore!). Except for the year I had cancer, I've tabled at CityLit Fest every year since its inception, and it only gets better with time. Congrats also to CityLit Executive Director Gregg Wilhelm for being named one of four of the Baltimore art world's MVPs.
POP ART - Vinylmore. The good folks at Atomic Books (including frequent Smile, Hon contributor Benn Ray) are behind this annual exhibition that "include winking allusions to art history and pop culture."
For the complete list of this year's "Best of Baltimore", pick up the August issue of Baltimore Magazine.
