2013: Streets.MN’s “The Best of 2013” – Call for Categories

Long time streets people will remember that we ran a best of 2012 series.

Last Year’s Posts:


We are looking for a new set of topics this year. Please use the comments to identify what you think should be the 2013 “Best of” categories. At the end of this week, the editors of Streets.MN will take that list, refine it  using only the best non-GMO chemicals, and produce a set of categories on which we will take nominations. At the beginning of December we will have a vote, and at the end of December, reveal with much fanfare, what are, in fact, the best things of 2013.

Streets.mn is a non-profit and is volunteer run. We rely on your support to keep the servers running. If you value what you read, please consider becoming a member.

    There is a few. I think that these could be a good way for writers to do some investigation and inquiry to push this beyond the obvious answers.

    Local music: Best (or top 5/10) local transportation related songs.

    Perhaps this one is too obvious, but since no one has suggested it yet: Best Streets.MN post. But perhaps that should be a separate thing, and it should definitely be at least a Top 5 (with honorable mentions) or Top 10.
