Set your browsers to bookmark and set clicking finger to stun — Friday marks the first day of voting for Lafayette as Southern Living Magazine’s Tastiest Town 2011.

Sure, Lafayette is up against New Orleans. And while most of us here in the Hub City consider the Crescent City to be our home away from home and comrade in arms against horrible food and music, let’s face it: Lafayette needs this more. New Orleans is known across the globe for its exquisite cuisine. Let’s let Lafayette get a little famous for the same thing.

Because of this, we urge you to vote for Lafayette no matter where you are from. The more South Louisiana can link up and be known for the fare along I-10 the more all the cities win. Next year we promise to give Lake Charles and Baton Rouge a turn. When Lafayette gets this sort of national attention it means everyone, from Gueydan to New Iberia to Ville Platte, all Acadiana cities get some love.

Every day from Dec. 22 to Jan. 31 you can vote once per day, meaning one vote per day per IP address. Southern Living is profiling all the cities nominated for Tastiest Town Award and the winner will be highlight in its April 2012 issue.

The competition is Baltimore, Md.; Raleigh, N.C., Birmingham, Ala.; Charlottesville, Va.; Louisville, Ky.; Decatur, Ga.; Charleston, S.C.; Houston; New Orleans and Lafayette.
