For those of you who don’t know, The Austin Chronicle hosts an annual Best of Austin campaign and presents awards to local businesses in various categories. We were thrilled to learn that Playland Skate Center was awarded both Best Place to Skate and Best Teen Hangout for 2012! The thing we love the most about these awards is that they were chosen by the readers which means the people of Austin picked us! Thank you all so much for your love and support! We couldn’t be more excited!
BUT, that’s not all! Along with our two fantastic Best of Austin awards, we were also informed that Playland is being considered and All-time winner with a total of 11 awards since the FIRST Best of Austin. Check out all the great honors we’ve got under our belt:
