Diablo Magazine’s 2014 Best of the East Bay Winners Announced

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Diablo magazine this week announced the 2014 Best of the East Bay winners. Each spring, Diablo asks its readers to vote for everything from acai bowls and wine bars to fitness trends, fashion, and scores of other categories. These businesses are featured online and in the July issue of Diablo magazine, which is available on newsstands throughout the San Francisco East Bay. This year marks the 27th anniversary of Diablo’s Best of the East Bay.

Diablo received over 65,000 votes in more than 100 categories, and a grand total of 123 winners were selected. Diablo’s “Best of ” winners are well-vetted. They have either garnered votes from Diablo readers, or they are editor picks researched by Diablo’s expert crew of journalists.

Best of the East Bay award certificates are displayed front and center at winning entities; many repeat honorees have a sizeable collection and offer special promotions to customers to celebrate their achievements. A list of 2014 Best of the East Bay winners can be found online at diablomag.com/bestof2014. Diablo magazine’s July issue is available at retail outlets, including Whole Foods, Lunardi’s, Draeger’s, Diablo Foods, Barnes and Noble, and Safeway.

“The Best of the East Bay issue is one of the most anticipated of the year,” states Barney Fonzi, Group Publisher for Diablo Publications. “All year long, our readers 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 and a feather in the cap of our recipients.”

One lucky Best of the East Bay voter, Karla McQuain, was randomly selected to win a Hawaiian getaway, which includes a three-night stay at the Aston Shorex at Waikoloa, in a one-bedroom deluxe suite, and round-trip airfare for two on Alaska Airlines.
