So just a quick note to let you know that your favorite city magazine is currently (and collectively) spraining its shoulder patting itself on the back. You see…we were just handed some right-impressive hardware from the good folks at the Folio Awards (it’s like the Golden Globes for periodicals).

Not only did we win a Silver for Best Design (for our April 2008 issue…the one with the funky Real Estate cover), but our own Stacey Wilson won a Gold for her story, "Made Behind Bars." It’s about vicious gangs, not a night out at the Sandy Hut. Check it out at www.portlandmonthlymag.com/issues/archives/articles/made-behind-bars/

Portland Monthly…we’re kind of a big deal.
