Village Voice Web Awards: The Winners!
Did you miss our party last night? It was fun. More importantly, people won stuff, like giant foam fingers and real, live cans of Four Loko! Herewith, a recap of the deserving winners of the very first ever First Annual Village Voice Web Awards! Also, our apologies to Best Neighborhood Blog, which was somehow not actually announced last night. EV Grieve was the official winner in that category, as chosen by the very special people of Foursquare. Nonetheless, you all rock, and as Miss Heather of New York Shitty said to me last night, "It's great just to be a finalist." More winners after the jump...
