Pitts. contest winner Dylan Atkinson:
The best place in Pittsburgh is definitely The Attic
in Millvale. The Attic is an aptly named record store. When you first walk into the place it is a cluttered mess of boxes filled with records of all genres. If you could imagine that dark room upstairs was in your punk rock grandfather's house which you found out was where he kept all of his records, that place would be the Attic. The location is perfect. Millvale looks like a town that never grew out of the sixties, and The Attic totally belongs there. Right down the street from The Attic is one of the best concert venues in the country, Mr. Small's
theatre. So when you come to town, make sure to swing by Mr. Smalls to grab one of the Flam-Bo Wieners (A hot dog with swiss cheese, skittles, and strawberry habenero sauce), and head on over to The Attic and take a trip through time!

NYC contest winner Ian Pritchard:
My favorite place to go in New York City is Midtown Comics
. Its the biggest comic book store in the country and has a huge inventory of new comics and back issues, as well as all kinds of comic-related stuff. You can get lost in there for hours, or make a quick stop and get what you're looking for.

Nashville contest winner Kyle Ewing:
I recently moved to Nashville from Iowa and have spent a lot of time exploring new sights and places. While many places have been interesting and amazing, Grimey's
, a local record store, has been my favorite. Being the music lover that I am, I appreciate it greatly when a record store has a huge selection of music. Grimey's
has just that! All different kinds of bands and genres. Plus they frequently have in-store performances featuring acts that are up-and-coming to acts that have been around for years! It is my opinion that if you're going to be in Nashville, while there are many sights and sounds you could check out, Grimey's
is a must for any music lover!
