Loco over local

The results are in!

Rod Lott August 10th, 2011

Summer in the 405 means three things: excessive heat, excessive heat and the long-awaited results for Oklahoma Gazette’s Best of OKC poll!

The drill remains the same: The following pages include the winners nominated by you and chosen by you — not us. All we did in the process was tally votes. Tens of thousands ballots later (excluding the stuffed ballots that went straight into the recycling bin), the results are ready for you to celebrate or debate.

But before you do, there’s one more thing we need to get out of the way: You may have noticed this year’s contest doesn’t come wrapped in a “thing” theme, such as the rampaging robots, racing horses or sparring boxers of the past. Instead, the theme isn’t a who, but a what: the “buy local” movement.

Buying local is a core value of Oklahoma Gazette. True, it can’t be done for everything, but when you buy local, more of your money stays local. If you didn’t buy local, this publication would cease to exist. We depend upon it as much as the shopkeepers and restaurateurs whose establishments you visit and hopefully patronize.

So keep it up! When you see them advertise in these pages, support them — and thank them for supporting Oklahoma Gazette while you’re at it. None of us can continue to do what we do — making this city more awesome — without each other’s help and love. —Rod Lott
