What were the year's most entertaining places?
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!
