The OC Weekly pulled in 11 Orange County Press Club honors at the recent awards dinner in Irvine. Not only did they take most of the big categories, including Best Feature and Best News Story, in what may be a first, OC Weekly writer Stacy Davies managed to tie…herself for first place in the Best Art or Culture category. Both Davies’ pieces “‘Art Shack’-ing Up” and “Laurie Hassold’s Creepy Crawlies” were named the winners.
OC Press Club vice president Kedric Francis told those in attendance at the ceremony that the accomplishment was unprecedented in club history.
Davies must have clearly been rubbing her victory in her colleague Matt Coker’s face–who only managed to win first and a third place in the Best Music or Entertainment category.
