LocalShops1 opens nominations for Best in Biz Awards

Regionites have until midnight Saturday to nominate their favorite Bay area nonprofits and businesses (restaurants and drinkeries included) for LocalShops1's annual Best in Biz Awards, taking place 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 6, at downtown St. Pete's Museum of Fine Arts.

Six categories — Best New Business, Best at Grassroots Marketing, Most Community-Minded Business and Best Nonprofit among them — are up for grabs.

Alongside everything local, the awards ceremony, established in 2008, will celebrate LocalShops1's 7th birthday through appetizers, nonalcoholic beverages and access to the museum's Five Decades of Photography exhibit.

Tickets may be purchased online in advance, and a cash bar, stocked with wine, beer and specialty drinks, will also be featured.
