Wow! Isn't it exciting to see so many new businesses opening shop in our great neighborhood? I'm remiss for not having patronized a lot of them yet (I drool everytime I walk by newcomer restaurant El Sol de America -- the food smells SO good! I can't wait to check it out!). It's going to be tough to choose which one to nominate for best new business, as so many are awesome new additions!

To cast your vote, just send an email to with the name of your favorite new retail business of 2007 in the subject line and your name in the message no later than 12:00 PM on Monday, March 17, 2008, in order for your vote to be counted. For more information, call 202-265-SHAW or email

The blog contents are good enough to impress the viewers. The blog contest is a right thing to choose the best by voting. Hope this wil help you a lot.

If we need to choose the right person, its best to take the opinion of the people. And for that blog contests are the best.
