Vinyl Fever

Apparently everybody managed to find the storied Tampa music merchant´s new Henderson Boulevard home OK because the shop won by a landslide. Again. For, like, the 197th year in a row. Which is cool — it certainly deserves it, what with its friendly, knowledgeable staff and its vast and eclectic selection of tunes, DVDs, magazines, cool posters and other entertainment-related what have you.

Basically, you think it rules, and we couldn´t possibly argue with your assessment. But still, we´re thinking of retiring this category from the Readers´ Poll, if for no other reason than to give the competition a chance to say next year that they definitely would´ve taken the prize, had it been in there. Which almost certainly wouldn´t be true, but so what?
