Goddess Studio

"Is there anyone else on the radio besides Paul and Young Ron Brewer? I think not. Not only are they the best radio personalities; they're the hippest (is that word used anymore?), baddest dudes on the radio." — Art Riley

"I went down to Ilios this Friday... and now I see why everyone keeps voting for it. The food was absolutely delicious, the service was extraordinary, the bar area was very lively (although I stayed at my table), and the lighting was perfect. It felt intimate yet inviting." — H.P.

"I signed on to cast my vote for Alex Nelson's Everything You Wanted to Say but Didn't... and am so glad to see so many others are also enjoying what is truly my favorite album — not that I am in the least bit surprised considering I was at his standing-room-only CD-release party. Alex is not only a gifted singer, guitarist, and lyricist — he's warm, wonderful, and dead clever." — Judy Blem

Runner-up: Voices From the Red Room, by Ghost of Gloria, 78 votes

Bonnet House
Votes: 21

"Bonnet House is an unspoiled oasis in the concrete jungle of Fort Lauderdale beach. A charming surprise of blue and yellow, the 1920s house sits amid 35 acres of natural South Florida wildlife — both animal and vegetable. Tours are available for the house and grounds, or you may opt for a self-guided walking tour. A heavenly escape." — Rita Houldsworth

Joe Jamz
