It’s that time of year again–time to vote for the Best of the East Bay! The East Bay Express’s big summer issue and flagship event recognizes readers and editors favorites in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.
This year’s theme is “Home Grown,” which recognizes things grown right here in our own backyard. In this twenty-first century world of globalization and mass production, Home Grown asks the readers and editors to be thoughtful citizens and loyal localists when making their nominations for the Best of the East Bay.
Voting is taking place online at http://www.eastbayexpress.com/ballot until July 4th, so vote early and make your voice heard!
And mark your calendars now for Friday August 6th, the date for the Best of the East Bay Party. This year’s party will be at Jack London Square waterfront from 5-11PM. The event is free and open for all ages, and features multiple bands, a kid’s zone, and a Blues Pavilion, paying tribute to the blues history of Russeel City in Hayward and 7th Street in Oakland.
