Press Release

 EatingOxford.com Voted a “Local Favorite” By Oxford Residents

(Oxford, MS, January 11, 2011) The votes have been tallied and restaurant goers have voiced their opinions in the annual Local Favorites poll conducted recently by Oxford, Mississippi-based newspaper The Local Voice. In addition to categories such as Favorite Restaurant and Favorite Local Band, one question asked for a vote of Favorite Local Website. After just over a year online, EatingOxford.com was able to clinch third place.

EatingOxford.com offers locals and out-of-town visitors a comprehensive list of the restaurants in and around Oxford, along with a regularly updated blog that keeps locals in tune with what’s going on around town. To date, more than 74,000 visitors have come to read nearly 270 posts on the EatingOxford.com blog (http://blog.eatingoxford.com/), helping to move it up the ranks to No.1 blog in Mississippi on Urbanspoon.com.

Run by Liz Barrett, a foodservice magazine editor-in-chief by trade, EatingOxford.com is her way of giving back to the community while continuing to enjoy one of her favorite pastimes. “I love to dine out, and I always have my eyes and ears open to what’s going on in the local food scene,” says Barrett. “After a while, it just made sense to start sharing the information I was gathering.”

To maintain the integrity of the site, EatingOxford.com does not accept advertising inquiries from restaurants. However, creative partnership ideas are always welcome.
