We Won "Best Blog About Beirut", Thanks to YOU!

We just won the Best Blog About Beirut! This is the indeed the best Christmas gift one could ask for. I'm overwhelmed with joy - knowing that people out there love, read and have voted for NGNO as the Best Blog About Beirut in a people's choice award on Time Out's Beirut's Best of 2013. It truly means the world to me. You can't imagine how emotional I got when "nogarlicnoonions" was called out as the winner. I thank you, each and every one of you who took the time to vote for NGNO. I can't thank you enough... Time_Out_Beirut_Best_2013_Awards17 Without your on going support, messages and feedback we would not have reached where we are today.
