Wow! What an amazing night!

Last night a HUUUUGE crowd of the area's Best, Brightest and Beautifulest crowded into the Mahaffey in St. Pete to celebrate Creative Loafing's 25th Annual Best of the Bay Issue — and more to the point, find out who won. Along with my lovely co-host, Jenn Holloway of WFLA and Great 38, I got the chance to congratulate an all-star array of award winners, from legislators to chefs to musicians to muralists. Better yet, all of these excellent people got to meet and hang out with each other — a mix of high-achieving folks that made you feel very good about living in Tampa Bay.

If you missed it, you can find this year's BOTB issue in boxes and distribution points on both sides of the bay; in the e-version; or in our online version, which you can find right here. And find photos from the party on our Facebook page. Congrats to all!
