Best of Montreal & Top d'ici


[update May 10: There is one more day to vote, thanks again in advance for yours.]

It seems it is that time of year again. The Montreal Mirror has its popularity contest.

For those of you who might be new to the blog, the city, the internet, or life in general. Zeke's Gallery, the real-life art gallery that supports and lends a name to this blog has won "Best Art Gallery" for five consecutive years. This blog, has been the third best blog, for two consecutive years. Consistency is my middle name. If you have the time and inclination, I'd be much obliged if you voted for Zeke's Gallery as best art gallery again.
