2010 Orchids & Onions Awards Ceremony

It was the hottest November 4th in well over a hundred years (135 to be exact), and we weren’t exactly prepared for it at the Culy Warehouse in downtown San Diego. In spite of the circumstances, and in no small part due to Hold It Contemporary Home, Sam the Cooking Guy, lots and lots of icey-cold Stone Brewing Co. beer, and our hundreds of good-natured guests, the evening was another rousing success. Have a look at the event photos here.
