The Boston Herald Wants Your Vote!

Boston’s feisty local tabloid is currently engaged in – what to call it? – engagement journalism.

Literally, in one case.

For the past few weeks, the Herald has been running a Royal Wedding contest, which is essentially a bakeoff among local engaged couples for who’s “most deserving of royal wedding treatment” (finalists here).

And that’s not the only ballot battle being hosted by the Herald.

We already have a winner in the paper’s restaurant-naming contest! From Wednesday’s Herald:

Cheers to Blue Inc.!

Reader inspires name of chef’s new eatery

We have a winner!

Jason Santos, the blue-haired chef and “Hell’s Kitchen” runner-up, is naming his new restaurant Blue Inc. — and 24-year-old Ashley Capone wins an invitation to the June opening party and gets to name a drink on Santos’ menu.

“I couldn’t believe it was me,” said Capone, who got the phone call yesterday about winning the Herald’s restaurant-naming contest. “I’ve never won anything, except maybe some swim meets when I was younger.”

Good thing she jumped in the Herald pool.

But wait! There’s more! Also from Wednesday’s Herald:

Did they rock you? Vote now

Let the battle begin!

Voting for the Herald’s Bandemonium contest begins today, and you, the reader, decides which high school band, choir, orchestra or glee club deserves to win $5,000 from Ernie Boch Jr.’s Music Drives Us Foundation and bragging rights as the best high school music group.

Maybe they should rename themselves the Boston Herald-Voter.
