Hot Breakfast! just sent out our Winter News/Snoozeletter! If you wanna be on our email list, either drop us a line at awesomesauce at hot-breakfast.com (you need the dash in the address, but you know that since you managed to get to our website here), or you can click the link right above this post that says “Get on the Mailing List.” We promise not to be spammy or annoying.
In the meantime – it’s time to VOTE! And not for something silly, like who gets to be President, but for something that matters: the 2016 WSTW Hometown Heroes Homey Awards! Round One of the voting has begun, and that’s where you come in. You have until February 4th to complete your ballot – this will narrow down the nominees. And PLEASE: ONLY ONE BALLOT PER PERSON. (Really. They delete the duplicate votes; but we’ll look like monumental jerks if anyone tries voting shenanigans on our behalf. Really, please don’t.)
And please take note: Hot Breakfast! is in the running in many categories. But while we’d love your vote, what we REALLY love is your honesty, so please, vote for your absolute favorites. There was so much great music released in 2015!
Here’s all you have to do:
- Go to http://wstw.com/heroes/homeys-vote.php (or just click that link.)
- Enter your email address in the field. (This is one way they make sure you’re only voting once per person… and PLEASE only vote once. All duplicate votes are deleted anyway, but ballot-box-stuffing also reflects badly.)

Remember: you only have until February 4th to get your vote in. So give it some thought, but not, y’know, TOO MUCH thought. :-) You don’t have to vote in every category, but there are so many great musicians and songs in the Delaware Valley, so we definitely recommend tracking down some of these nominations.
