YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO MAZO BEACH
MAY HAVE BEEN TAKEN AWAY, BUT
YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE FOR MAZO BEACH
AS THE 2016 BEST OF THE ‘BURBS
TOP ATTRACTION / LANDMARK
CANNOT BE TAKEN AWAY!
A BIT OF HISTORY:
Last year we had an opportunity to show our support for attractions and businesses in the Mazomanie area when Madison Magazine (known for its “Best of Madison” annual readers’ poll) did an inaugural “Best of the ‘Burbs” poll asking people about their favorite suburban spots.
A BIG THANK YOU to all the beach users who logged in and voted to let their love for the beach be known along with their support of local businesses in the Mazo area.
For those who may not know, the end result was…
“2015 BEST OF THE ‘BURBS” ATTRACTION / LANDMARK: (drum roll, please…)
MAZO BEACH!!! Yes, MAZO BEACH – FIRST PLACE!!!
In addition, our votes helped get a dozen local businesses the recognition they greatly deserved:
Best bakery – The Old Feed Mill, Mazomanie (3rd place)
Best bed & breakfast inn – Walking Iron Bed & Breakfast, Mazomanie (1st place)
Best bowling alley – Black Earth Lanes, Black Earth (1st place)
Best restaurant & burger – Wall St Gallery & Bistro, Mazomanie (2nd place)
Best community newspaper – News-Sickle-Arrow, Mazomanie (2nd place)
Best fish fry – Bay 5 Diner, Mazomanie (2nd place)
Best florist – B-Style Floral & Gifts, Mazomanie (1st place)
Best grocery store – Carr Valley Cheese, Mazomanie (2nd place)
Best hair salon – Cloud Nine Salon, Mazomanie (1st place)
Best library – Mazomanie Free Library, Mazomanie (1st place)
Best neighborhood bar – R&J’s Saloon, Mazomanie (1st place)
Best neighborhood bar – The Shack Bar & Grill, Black Earth (2nd place)
As you know, this past year more than ever before there have been ongoing attempts to portray Mazo Beach in a bad light – claiming that it damages the reputation of the area, it hurts local businesses, and is an embarrassment to local residents.
For the past three years beach access was restricted to weekends only, and a few weeks ago the DNR announced Mazo Beach would be completely closed every day of the week effective immediately until further notice. With that abrupt decision, they are clearly ignoring the fact that this very popular clothing optional beach draws in thousands of people literally from all over the world and greatly helps the local economy.
Thus, last year’s recognition of MAZO BEACH as the MOST POPULAR “LANDMARK / ATTRACTION” came at an ideal time.
BUT EVEN MORE IDEAL WOULD BE
IF MAZO BEACH IS ABLE TO REPEAT
THE HONOR AS MOST POPULAR TOP
“LANDMARK / ATTRACTION” THIS YEAR!
