Asthmatic Kitty came this close to dominating the Best of Indy 2012 poll for top local Indianapolis label. We join other venerable Hoosier-based runners-up in the annual Nuvo survey, including second best pork tenderloin, Edwards Drive-In; second best place for ‘hooking up’, the Alley Cat; and second best local pro sports team, the Pacers.

We’re already preparing to dominate next year’s readers’ poll. People of Indianapolis, brace yourselves.
