The East Bay is a place where businesses are constantly forming new ideas and reinventing themselves, so there’s never a shortage of ‘Best Of’ businesses.
Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2015
Diablo magazine has announced its 2015 Best of the East Bay winners. Each spring, Diablo asks its readers to vote for everything from entertainment venues and ice-cream sandwiches to restaurants, fitness, hairstylists, and scores of other categories. These businesses are featured in the July issue of Diablo magazine, which is available on newsstands throughout the San Francisco East Bay (and online at diablomag.com). This year marks the 28th anniversary of Diablo’s Best of the East Bay.
This year’s Best of the East Bay issue boasts 10 sections featuring 255 winners. Sections include: Culture, Food, Health, Fun, Beauty, Travel, Shops, Weddings, Kids, and Pets. This year’s winners were garnered from thousands of votes from Diablo magazine readers along with editors’ picks researched by Diablo’s expert crew of journalists.
Best of the East Bay award certificates are displayed front and center at winning businesses; many repeat honorees have a sizable collection and offer special promotions to customers to celebrate their achievements. A list of 2015 Best of the East Bay winners can be found online at diablomag.com/bestof2015. Diablo magazine’s July issue is sold at retail outlets, including Whole Foods, Lunardi’s, Draeger’s, Diablo Foods, Barnes and Noble, and Safeway.
"Each year, we search the East Bay to find examples of the best the area has to offer, and we never come back disappointed," says Diablo magazine Editor in Chief Susan Safipour. "The East Bay is a place where businesses are constantly forming new ideas and reinventing themselves, so there’s never a shortage of ‘Best Of’ businesses.”
“The Best of the East Bay issue is one of the most anticipated of the year,” states Barney Fonzi, President of Diablo Publications. “All year long, our readers will use this issue as the go-to reference guide. Being recognized as a Diablo magazine Best of the East Bay winner is a great accomplishment for local businesses.”
One lucky Best of the East Bay voter, Barbara Ward of Orinda, was randomly selected to win a three-night stay at the Silverado Resort and Spa, a round of golf, and dinner for two at the Silverado Grill. Ward is also highlighted in the July Best of the East Bay issue.
