Best of Lawrence 2011: Live Music Venue & Bookstore

We appreciate all the feedback we've received as we've put together 2011's Best of Lawrence contest.

The contest starts Jan. 24, but before then we'd still like to hear from you. That's why, starting this week, we're posting maps of candidates for each category.

Today we're looking at the following categories: Best Live Music Venue and Best Bookstore.

Gaslight Tavern for best music venue.

Although why are we bothering putting together a list of candidates anyway? Figures it'd be more inclusive and less time consuming to just let people vote for whatever they want in the contest instead of compiling lists beforehand of every possible option.

Best Live Music = MORE Live Music (and more support for it)

The Toy Store downtown carries over 13,000 children's book titles! We'd love to be on the ballot.
