As Gambit Weekly prepares its annual 40 Under 40 issue spotlighting people who are making their mark on the metropolitan area, we are once again asking our readers to tell us who deserves recognition.
The requirements are simple. Nominees must be 39 years of age or younger, live in the New Orleans area and be worthy of distinction. Tell us about their background, accomplishments and future plans, and be sure to include any other information you think might be useful. Elected officials are not eligible.
Send nominations to "40 Under 40," c/o Gambit Weekly, Attn: Shala Carlson, 3923 Bienville St., NOLA, 70119. Fax nominations to 483-3116 or send by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. No phone calls, please.
CORRECTIONS: In the results of last week's Best Of New Orleans readers poll, we incorrectly listed a Metairie location for Mona's -- Best Mediterranean Restaurant -- and failed to list the 504 Frenchmen St. location (949-4115). We also incorrectly listed the address and phone number of the Red Cat Gallery, the second place winner in the category of Best Art Gallery; the correct information is 635 St. Ann St., 523-0533. Also, Donald Cerise received second place in the category of Best Optometrist; Cerise is actually an opthamologist. Finally, Karen Swensen replaced Angela Hill as the co-anchor of WWL-TV's 10 p.m. news broadcast, not Jennifer Hunt, as we incorrectly reported in our writers' picks. Gambit Weekly regrets the errors.
