Our Advertisers

We’re looking to start with six local companies or organizations – no restaurants allowed,  to avoid conflicts of interest – that we will feature on every page of the Mas to Millers site for six months.

Why should you advertise on Mas to Millers?

  • We’ve gained a loyal following with thousands of monthly readers since Mas to Millers launched in July 2009. At the time of this writing, your ad will be viewed an average of 21,000 times per month.
  • Our regular posts on the Charlottesville dining scene include restaurant reviews, food events and news, food and drink finds, and cuisine cage matches in a fun, light-hearted tone, contributed by our “dream team” of food reviewers.
  • We were just nominated for “Best Local Blog 2011” by C-ville Weekly and we’ve been featured on CBS 19 News.
  • It’s a cost-effective way to reach thousands of Charlottesville residents and visitors. Our prices are less than half the cost of web advertising with the local weekly papers.
