City Pages Launches Redesigned Web Site

(To access the online version of this announcement, click here.)

MINNEAPOLIS — February 9, 2005 — is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. A milestone such as this calls for a little nip here, a little tuck there, and a little Botox everywhere.

When it comes to getting where you need to go, we’ve trimmed the fat and added a new, streamlined navigation system to help guide you through City Pages’ award-winning content. Whether you’re looking for the cover story, Dara Moskowitz’s restaurant coverage, news, sports analysis, or arts features, past and present editorial content is now easier to find, and more readable in our new format.

While some parts of get lean and mean, we’ve beefed up our online calendar listings with expanded coverage of art openings, readings, concerts, lectures, movie and play openings, and family events. We’ve redesigned the movie section with faster theater and movie search functions, easy-to-find long and short reviews, and editor’s picks. The performance section of the calendar also features a directory of performance spaces, times, dates, prices, and reviews. Our enormous music and concert section not only gives you all the vital info, but also includes a map function to get you to the hundreds of clubs and concert halls located in the seven-county metro area (and even Wisconsin!).

When it comes to searching for older content, by subject, author, title, or year, our new turbo-charged search functions will help you find what you’re looking for faster and more accurately.

Welcome to the new Come in, click around, and let us know what you think. Keep an eye out for more changes during our anniversary year, with expanded content, quizzes, contests, more blogs by City Pages writers, promotions, music downloads, and much more.
