'The Anxious Hipster and Other Barflies I’ve Known' by Brian Clarey
YES Weekly creative assistant Jordan Grace Owens' piece, “Skating Lady,” has won a contest to design the official poster for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships taking place next month.
In this week's issue of Yes! Weekly, editor Brian Clarey shares his reaction upon learning -- while on vacation -- that his paper had been admitted into AAN after its previous attempts were unsuccessful.
Eight of the prospective members are previous applicants, and two are owned by alt-weekly veterans who had been members during a previous association with different papers. AAN members will also be asked this year to evaluate Boston's Weekly Dig and Des Moines' Cityview, the first two post-sale newspapers whose membership will be reviewed under a process established in 2004 when the association's bylaws were amended. The fate of all of these papers will be determined at the organization's next Annual Meeting, which will be held in Little Rock on Saturday, June 17, the last day of the 29th annual AAN convention.
