Scene in S.B.: First Ever Best Fest

More than 500 Celebrate Our Best of Santa Barbara Awardees


Last Thursday, hours after our annual Best Of Santa Barbara® issues hit the streets, more than 500 people came down to the Carriage Museum to eat, drink, dance, and celebrate this year’s awardees. In addition to ample beer, wine, cocktails, and nibbles, from noodles and tacos to pizza and donut holes, attendees were treated to the tunes of DJ Darla Bea and flash-mob performances by La Boheme, who were decked out in Día de Los Muertos makeup and burlesque attire. Few folks had as much fun as The Santa Barbara Independent’s own staff, —including (from left) Alex Melton, Megan Illgner, Richie DeMaria, and Ben Ciccati in the back row and Caitlin Fitch, Indy alum Tamara Weaver, and Marianne Kuga in the front— who popped wide smiles for the Open Air Photobooth, relieved to be finally done putting together the massive 208-page newspaper, our biggest single issue in almost a decade.
