The 2018 Townie Results: Restaurants

Less than a handful of days into 2018 and there’s already been some wild headlines. A YouTube star made a vlog about a dead person in a forest, Steve Bannon accused the president of treason, and everyone is making memes about detergent pods. Fortunately, The Local Voice is here to be your rock in the hysteria that is our modern world and present to you the winners of the 9th Annual The Local Voice Favorite Awards aka TheTownies. As always, Oxford made their voices heard with piles of ballots flooding our boxes.

Some institutions stood strong, adding another notch to their winning streaks, while others fell to Oxford newcomers. If you were the latter rather than former, worry not as there is always next year and you’ve got plenty of time to campaign. If you were voted a favorite in Oxford then brag about it on every social media and scream it in the streets till your voice gives out. After your deserved celebration shoot us an email at thelocalvoice@thelocalvoice.net so we can get your Townie certificate to you!
