Originally, the Best of New Orleans® poll, complete with essays, comments about the winners and more, was scheduled to hit the streets Aug. 30, but languished at our printer undistributed while New Orleans flooded, dried out, flooded again, and finally was reopened to its citizens.
This is the second in a two-part abbreviated version of the readers' responses, covering winners in the categories of Entertainment & Nightlife, Local Life, Media and Politics. Last week, we presented the results of Food & Restaurants and Goods & Services. For those who want to own the original and complete Best of New Orleans® issue, copies are now available for $10, including shipping and handling. Bundles of 25 are $160, including local delivery. Call 830-3478 to place your order. All proceeds benefit The Foundation for Entertainment Development and Education Inc., a 501 C-3 non-profit organization created in 1990 to fund projects and programs that acknowledge the profound importance of the performing arts to the culture and economy of the New Orleans area.
