KCRG’s A-List Announced, Area’s Best Highlighted

Wondering what’s the best art gallery in the corridor? Curious where to get the best facial? Want to end the battle between you and your best friend over which pizzeria is the best?   KCRG Channel 9 in Cedar Rapids recently announced the 2008 A-list — a comprehensive list of the best of everything the corridor and surrounding area has to offer.  Viewers were asked to nominate and vote for their favorites, and the winners were announced this week. 

Main categories include: arts & entertainment, fashion, shopping, beauty, health & fitness, specialty food and drink, dining, nightlife, and weddings.  There are dozens of sub-categories under these; for example under dining you’ll find best pizza, best bar-b-que, best burger… you get the picture. Some of the winners include:

Best Coffee Shop
The Java House

Best Pizza
Zoey’s Pizzeria

Best Bookstore
Prairie Lights

Best Pet Services
Lucky Pawz

Best Art Gallery
ARA Gallery & Interiors

Call it our local Zagats, the A-list is great compilation of the area’s best.  From best pub to get a beer (The Irish Democrat), to best gym to work off the hangover the next day (Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping) the list is voted on by locals and includes their opinions and comments.  

Check out the full list at http://kcrg.cityvoter.com/alist and see if your favorites made the cut.  And if not, you’ll certainly uncover many new places to explore in the corridor.
