The Second Annual Hilly Awards will occur on November 19. Nominations are being accepted for restaurant of the year, bar/tavern of the year, coffee shop of the year, best new business, and more now.
The top five businesses with the most nominations will appear on the official ballot. Voting runs from October 4 through November 4 and the winners will be announced at the second annual HILLY AWARDS on November 19, 2010.
Last year the winners were mostly from the south side of Capitol Hill, including Frager's Hardware, Cava Mezze, and Hill's Kitchen. Indeed, Sharee Lawler (candidate for ANC6A05 and owner of Black Lab Advisory) who keeps an office on H Street may be the only H Street winner from 2009. Hopefully some of H Street's great businesses will be nominated and take home awards this year. Who are you nominating? Sidamo or SOVA for coffee shop? Which of our many new businesses is the best new business from the past year? Is the Argonaut your favorite tavern?
