Kudos to a List of Central Vermont Businesses
When I say Montpelier is the coolest state capital, my kids roll their eyes. Occasionally, I get proof from a credible source that, when waved under their noses, cannot be poo-pooed. In its annual readers' choice survey, statewide weekly Seven Days awarded a rumored 27 of its cherished "Daysies" to Montpelier businesses. We're having trouble to verify the number, but in any case, the list of winners is outstanding! Congratulations to:
Sarducci's, Kismet, Salt, Positive Pie, Dairy Creme, Three Penny Taproom, Capitol Grounds, Hunger Mountain Coop, Samosaman, Artisan's Hand Craft Gallery, The Savoy Theater & Downstairs Video, Lost Nation Theater, Salaam Boutique, The Men's Store, The Shoe Horn, Onion River Sports, Zutano, Splash Naturals, Guitar Sam, Buch Spieler, Bear Pond Books, Captial Kitchen, Woodbury Mountain Toys
Indie films at The Savoy, new running shoes at Onion River Sports, and a literary fix at Bear Pond? Popular with all the folks in this neck of the woods. Montpelier has great set of local business and pretty much anything you might wish to buy can be found downtown.
We're longtime readers of Seven Days - easily the best publication for local events and news - and we love spotting a Daysie hanging on the wall of our favorite establishments, but this comprehensive list of our favorite spots is the icing on the cake. From the intersection of State and Main in Montpelier, I can only celebrate Seven Days readers for voter turn out in Central Vermont.
