Get Your Votes In Today
& Let Your Voice Be Heard

It's common knowledge that we here at the Isotope we're big supporters of the democratic process. Along with our friends at Rock The Vote we launched the Brian K. Vaughan and Tony Harris series Ex Machina with a voter registration drive and followed it up with a very cool get out and vote campaign to reward those who are doing their part to make their voices heard. Because taking time to vote is something we truly believe in.

With that in mind, today I'm giving you this reminder to get your votes in for the SF Bay Guardian's Best of the Bay Reader's Poll. In a city as teeming with wonderful businesses like SF is, it is truly an huge honor to be recognised by your customers and colleagues. The Isotope has been lucky enough to have been honored as SF's "Best Comic Book Store" for four years running, thanks to people like you who took the time to fill out a ballot and show us your love for what we do.

Honestly, it's brought a tear to my eye on more than one occasion and I couldn't thank you all more.

But filling out that massive on-line form can be a bit daunting, so for those folks who need some suggestions of other folks to vote for my staff and I kindly suggest considering the following small businesses that we feel strongly offer a beyond-the-exceptional experience and help make the Bay Area the unique and appealing place that it is:

Food & Drink
"Best Small Plates" Limon
"Best Late-Night Restaurant" Sauce
"Best Splurge Restaurant" Sauce
"Best Independent Coffeehouse" Blue Bottle Coffee
"Best Selection of Beers" Speakeasy Brewery

Entertainment & Nightlife
"Best Museum" Cartoon Art Museum
"Best Rock Club" Bottom of the Hill
"Best Happy Hour" Jade Bar
"Best Dive Bar" The Expansion
"Best Indie Band" Triple Cobra
"Best DJ" DJ Bearzbub
"Best Burlesque Act" Glitzkrieg Burlesque

"Best Independent Bookstore" Borderlands Books
"Best Used Bookstore" Green Apple Books
"Best Clothing Store (Men's)" Harry O. Menswear
"Best Local Designer" Dark Garden
"Best Furniture Store" Inside Modern
"Best Independent Toy Store" Kid Robot
"Best Quirky Specialty Store" The Pirate Store @ 826 Valencia

City Living
"Best Local Blog" SFist
"Best Tattoo Artist" Tex
"Best Tattoo Shop" Body Manipulations
"Best Place for a Haircut" Hair of the Gods
"Best Local Record Label" Fat Wreck Chrods

My staff and I encourage all our friends and family to get their voices heard for 2007. Voting ends on June 27th at 5pm so don't delay, get those votes in people!
