Alrighty, PopWatchers. We asked for your help in brainstorming for our 2007 “Entertainers of the Year” issue, and you came through like Lassie to a child in a well — 1,500 suggestions and counting! (That sound you hear is an intern weeping.) Well, now, we’re midway through a rousing, staff-wide throw-down about the most entertaining places of the last 12 months. This, of course, is a tough one, since it encompasses real destinations (concert venues and such), fictional ones (Hogwarts!), and combinations of the two, like my suggestion, 30 Rockefeller Plaza — home to the real-life Today show set, but also Tina Fey’s hilarious imagined world of 30 Rock (and its show-within-a-show Girlie Show). Meta!

So your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to tell us: What were the year’s three most entertaining places? And just as important, tell us why. Quick, get to writing, folks: This blog item will self-destruct in 60 seconds!
