It's like being nominated for an Oscar, sort of, only for magazine people. Congrats to @BillAddison, Atlanta magazine's food editor and restaurant critic, on being selected as a finalist in the 2012 National City and Regional Magazine Awards. Three of his feature stories were selected for the judging, including this one about Kristen Hard, owner of Cacao Atlanta. The CRMA awards will be handed out in May at the mag group's annual conference. This year it's being held in Vegas, baby, Vegas.
