The Inlander has opened their Best of 2010 contest for voting here. I've never voted in the contest before so I was a little surprised at the format. They give you the whole slate of things to vote on and then out of those you have to vote on 50 of them. It's actually stretching my knowledge of events in the Spokane area. Best Play of 2010? Anyone? Best outdoor music festival? Maybe I just don't get out enough.
Here are some suggestions to help you fill out your slate of 50:
Best Farmers' Market - Millwood
Best Bakery and Locally Owned Coffee Shop - Rocket
Best Bread - Arabesque
Best Coffee Roaster - Roast House (They're new and could use the publicity)
Best Yoga Studio - Mellow Monkey
Best Outdoor Gear - Mountain Gear
Best Mexican Food - Deleon
Best Spa - Mosaic
Best Pizza - South Perry Pizza
Alas, there is not a best local blogger category this year. The deadline is Feb. 23.
