Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Diablo magazine today announced the 2012 Best of the East Bay winners. Each spring, Diablo asks its readers to vote for their favorite boutique, burger, bookstore, and hundreds of other categories. Diablo received more than 10,000 votes, and a grand total of 176 winners were selected. These businesses are featured in the July issue of Diablo magazine, which is available on newsstands throughout the San Francisco East Bay. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Diablo’s Best of the East Bay.
The prestigious awards are displayed front and center at winning businesses; many repeat honorees have quite a collection and offer special promotions to customers to celebrate their achievements. Being recognized as a Diablo magazine Best of the East Bay winner is a great accomplishment and a feather in the cap of local businesses.
“Each year, our readers, advertisers, and the East Bay community at large look forward to reading the Best of the East Bay issue,” states Barney Fonzi, Group Publisher for Diablo Publications. “It’s fair to say that it is our most anticipated issue of the year.”
