Oak Cliff Owns Dallas Observer Best Of

Sep 23, 2010 5 Comments by

To say Oak Cliff dominated the Dallas Observer Best Of awards is hardly hyperbole. We made a quick count of 23 Oak Cliff mentions in the 2010 Dallas Observer Best Of list that was released today, and we think that’s pretty great representation for our little ‘hood.

Heck – even our blog here was recognized. So puff up your chest, Oak Cliff, you’ve got lots to be proud of! And congratulations to all of the Oak Cliff winners!
