This week is the last issue of the Advocate/Weekly papers in their current format. Starting next week — at the regular free drop-off spots on Thursday and in that days' editions of the Hartford Courant — you'll find a new publication, CTNow, that combines the strength of the Advocates and the Hartford Courant to bring you the most comprehensive arts and entertainment publication in the state. Just as you've leaned on the Advocates over the years, we're confident CTNow will still be the place you go to find out what live shows to go catch, what restaurants to check out, what art openings to get to, and which theater events not to miss. You'll find even more at our new website, ctnow.com. We'll also continue our popular annual Readers' Poll (The Best of Hartford/New Haven/Fairfield County) and our dining guides and fall arts coverage. I've been working as a staffer at the Advocate for almost 11 years. Each week has been an exciting scramble and I'm looking forward to digging in even deeper into stories about the state's music and culture. See you next week in CTNow.
