THE GREATEST OF LONG BEACH: NOMINATIONS CLOSE TUESDAY, MARCH 20By Greater Long Beach
Countless nominations in endless categories are still rolling in for The Greatest of Long Beach, the free-form research collaboration byLBReport.com and GreaterLongBeach.com that’s dedicated to discovering the ultimate of everything in Long Beach and its satellite cities. Turns out, everything is a lot!
But as we all know, the infinite possibilities can’t go on forever, and this is to announce a deadline for submissions to this year’s Greatest of Long Beach: midnight on March 20 … aka the end of the first day of spring … aka this coming Tuesday.
We’ll spend the rest of March processing the nominations and their categories—a system of sorting, arranging, tagging, ranking, compartmentalizing, judging, reimagining, profiling, rating, distributing, grading, classifying, typecasting, grouping and, most painfully, pigeonholing.
Then, on April 1, GreaterLongBeach.com and LBReport.com will jointly publish the definitive list of The Greatest of Long Beach.
Trust us, you’ll be excited—people in and around Long Beach get excited about stuff like this. In fact, we’ll let you in on a little secret: Getting Excited About Stuff Like This is one of the leading nominees in the category of The Greatest Emotion in Long Beach.
Heck, as long as that cat’s outta the bag, we’ll tip you to other categories that have received significant nominations:
• Greatest Place to Learn About the Arts.
• Greatest Dipping Sauce for Sweet Potato Fries.
• Greatest Self-Description by a Councilmember who Then Totally Contradicted Themselves With Their Subsequent Vote.
• Greatest If It’s Broken, Find the Parts To Fix It Shop.
• Greatest Dog-gone Event.
• Greatest Donuts.
• Greatest Bus Line.
• Greatest Political Opponent a Lowenthal Ever Faced.
So that’s the idea, but the point is that you only have until midnight on March 20—this coming Tuesday, the first day of spring—to be sure the greatness in your life is included in the Greatest of Long Beach.
Send your nominations in whatever category to TheGreatest@GreaterLongBeach.com.
