We’ve been racking our brains all morning to try to remember who it was that we were recently talking to when we described DailyCandy Chicago as “lobotomized.” But even absent that memory, the fact remains: Really, we’ve been incredibly disappointed by the girly advertorial email lately (see: their back-to-back loss in Showdown at the PR Corral). We were inclined to just let today’s email pass without comment (it’s not about a restaurant or other food-providing operation, so it barely blips on our radar), but we’ll make an exception for two reasons: (1) it’s about wine; (2) 312DD calls them out today on their descent into inanity.
“I’ve kept quiet too long about the sudden downspiral of Daily Candy Chicago,” Audarshia writes, smacking the newsletter upside the head for today’s unnecessarily raunchy, entirely un-funny, vaguely-insinuating-that-its-readers-are-sluts-y missive. And we are 100% behind her — at least Thrillist and UrbanDaddy are, you know, funny and interesting and smart. DailyCandy just makes us embarrassed to belong to their demographic.
