    Hello Kirsten,

    I love your blog site here. I’ve enjoyed browsing through the reviews and events stuff! What is the process to go through to get a review by you? I’m co-owner of a funky new sandwich shop in Decatur (near the DeKalb Farmer’s Market) called Erbert and Gerbert’s.

    We’re actively getting review posts on Yelp, Citysearch, Urbanspoon, etc – but would love to get one from you! If you think your readers would benefit from knowing about us, our food, community involvement – whatever, we’d love to do whatever the next step is!

    You can let me know what you think at your earliest convenience. Thank You!

    – Ed Andrists
