Nightclub & Bar Awards are out...congrats are in order

I helped judge the Nightclub & Bar awards again this year, and I'm pleased to say that a couple of the places I was excited about won. Here's a partial list:

Bartender of the Year – Jackson Cannon, Eastern Standard, Boston
Beer Bar of the Year – ChurchKey, Washington, D.C.
Hotel Bar of the Year Eastern Standard, Hotel Commonwealth, Boston
Small Wonder Bar of the Year Embury, Pittsburgh, Pa.

That last category is, I think, one of the best awards NCB does. I love the tip of the hat to small, intimate, comfortable bars.

The full list is available here. Congratulations to all the winners!

Church Key is my favorite bar in DC. Only a few blocks from where I work, which has its pluses and minuses.
