Snow Birds and lots of locals gathered for Best of the Best, February 2017 on a windy February 6 at La Buena Vida Restaurant. Luckily, the protected enclosed area served its purpose as we were all cozy and friendly; but also, many of our participants enjoyed bar seating. A new item was added to this event, and the first 44 arrivals received a number for a special drawing. Bartley Smith of Turtle Bay donated a bottle of Cueva Vodka to the winner of this drawing. Nice touch; thanks, Bart!
Judges for this event were some recent past winners,Rocio Cüe and John Winkel, along with Mary Henderson; the photographer is David Zucker. Three categories – free drinks! Best Shirt Winner, a free drink from La Buena Vida Restaurant; Best Sandals Winner, a free drink from La Lunita Restaurant; and Best Clever T-Shirt, a free drink from Turtle Bay Restaurant. Not only is this a fun time to join friends and make new ones, the incentives of having different category winners and a drawing are a special bonus. Try your luck on the first Friday of each month; next event is March 3.
