Over on Curbed NY, they're trying to identify the best bodega in the city. How it works: Today through Thursday, pick your favorite reader-submitted suggestion in one of the daily heat rounds. On Friday, the winners will face off in a showdown of finalists to determine the ultimate winner. Today's poll includes bodegas from Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Alphabet City and contains the following sterling recommendation: "When I was a bartender, I would get home at 4am, call them up, order an avocado sandwich (no onions), a pint of non-fat milk, carrot & celery sticks, 4 containers of yogurt, a pack of Parliaments and a 12-pack of Coors light. It would be delivered to me within 20 minutes." [Curbed NY]
