The shirts are colorful, sandals sparkle, and t-shirts are increasingly more clever as 30+ fun-loving people gathered for Best of the Best, March 2017 at La Buena Vida Restaurant. Perhaps our youngest (13 months) ever to attend was Zoe Dooley (who is sure to be a future winner!), and her parents and grandparents from Shangai, China. The winds coming off Half Moon Bay made folks appreciate being seated in a protected area or at the bar.
This traditional event on the first Friday of every month in Akumal awards prizes for Best Shirt, Best Sandals, and Best Clever T-Shirt. The award for each winner is a free drink from a local restaurant, and represented in March was Turtle Bay Bakery and Café, Lunita, and La Buena Vida. An additional feature for this month was a drawing from among all attending for a free T-Shirt from the Bone Zone, a tienda across from La Buena Vida owned by Jamie Cost. Thanks for your generosity, Jamie!
Judges were Mary Henderson, Richard Dooley, and David Zucker (David is also the staff photographer). See photos below for those attending as well as winners in each of the three categories.
Next Best of the Best will be April 7th. Please make plans to be here!
