* Best Local Charity
"Friendship Gardens, for making healthy food available, especially in areas that dont have access otherwise, starting with gardens."
* Best Old Thing
"What old thing? This is Charlotte." *winks*
* Best Art Space
"C3 Lab is a really exciting new collaborative art space in South End that brings creative people and the business community together. I don't want to speak for all artists, but having business brains around helps."
* Best Wine Bar
"Twenty-Two, because you get a great wine selection, thanks to Ryan Haines, and you can look at local art. It's like my Cheers bar."
* Best Splurge Restaurant
"I love going to the Fig Tree and just eating and drinking for like three hours. Passion8 is fantastic too, though."
* Best Local Consignment Shop
"I love Sleepy Poet (Antique Mall). I could spend all day in there. You can find pretty things and a lot of super weird stuff."
