Guess Who Won CBS New York’s Most Valuable Blogger Award? This Guy.

Screw the race for the 9th Congressional District; the real vote worth watching this week was CBS New York’s Most Valuable Blogger Awards. And guess who pulled off a stunning upset there? That’s right, Sheepshead Bites. Boom, baby!

Sheepshead Bites beat out Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York, Livingfreenyc, New York Places No More, Scouting New York and Second Ave. Sagas for the Editor’s Choice award in Local Affairs. No, we didn’t win the people’s vote – that went to Joe.My.God – but that’s okay with us. We’re more than happy to have been given the recognition by a group of editors over at CBS, though winning the popular vote sure would’ve been a nice touch.

Thanks to everyone who voted for us, thanks to our tipsters, and especially thanks to my colleagues, the hard-working team behind Sheepshead Bites and Bensonhurst Bean.
