Best Of Atlanta 2008 Cityscape Large


Cityscape

The polls have closed. The people have spoken. From Buckhead to Bankhead, Va-Hi to West End, it's a new day for Atlanta. With nearly 100 percent of precincts reporting, we believe it's safe to report that our Cityscape frontrunners have won by a landslide. These worthy candidates are ready to serve the needs of soccer MILFs and ironic hipsters, Hong Kong gangsters and Huddle House dads across Atlanta. On this momentous day, we're happy to toast such Atlanta icons as YouTube phenom Soulja Girl and 15-minute celeb John Fitzgerald Page (i.e., "the worst person in the world"). We couldn't have done it without the near-death of Grady Memorial Hospital or the civil disobedience of the Critical Mass cyclists. Had it not been for the priceless contributions from the bloggers at PecanneLog.com, or the groundbreaking graphics generated by AccessNorthGa.com, we doubt we'd be here today. So let's take a minute to applaud the few, the proud — the Best of Atlanta Cityscape winners.
