Washington City Paper's Best Of If you live in the DC area make sure to pick up a copy of Washington City Paper's Best Of issue for 2015!
I love, love this annual issue because it gives props to small business owners who work SO HARD throughout the year. I wrote a portion of the retail section and had so much fun conducting research. It's a miracle to keep a brick and mortar going these days (i.e. see the retail death watch list of 2015 thus far) and people with independent ventures work their fannies off to keep things moving.
Congrats to the winners!
