IndyWeek: Champion of Local Businesses

Written by | March 11, 2014 | Posted in News & Culture

If there’s one thing we all know about Durham, it’s how fiercely loyal we are to local businesses & talent. For those who don’t know about IndyWeek, get ready to become a new fan. IndyWeek is a monthly, free publication that you’ll often see outside restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. It features local businesses, food, music, arts, and entertainment. Browsing through the current issue of IndyWeek tells you at a glance what’s going on in the area, and it’s a great resource for out-of-towners looking for things to see and do while they’re here.

There’s another pretty amazing part of IndyWeek – the yearly “Best Of” Voting. I’m sure you’ve seen the big yellow stars in businesses all over the triangle declaring “Best Chicken Wings – 2010 IndyWeek,” and so on. Ever wonder how that happens? Each spring, IndyWeek launches a six week voting window, inviting locals to vote on all kinds of things – like who has the best beer selection, where’s the best place to watch ACC ballgames, or get your clothing altered. This write-in ballot is divided into categories like food, things to do, and services. The list of winners remains on their website for an entire year, so this has also become a go-to source for folks looking for a great local business. Looking for a place to board your dog for the weekend? Look it up on IndyWeek – and take your fellow Durhamites’ advice on who’s the best.

Last year, Cuberis was honored to be voted as a finalist in the brand new Services category for Web Design. There is a lot of talent here in Durham, so we were overjoyed to be recognized. If you’d like to support your favorite local businesses, please vote for Cuberis, and all your other picks here between now and April 20. It may seem like a pretty hefty survey (262 questions!) but you only have to vote on a minimum of 20 businesses for your answers to be counted.

Thanks so much for your support, Triangle. We wouldn’t be who we are without you.

Vote for your favorite local businesses on IndyWeek now through April 20.
