Miami New Times Best Of Celebration: It Was the Best of Times (Photos)

Yesterday's late afternoon thunderstorm might have looked threatening, but by the time last night's Best Of celebration at the Rusty Pelican in Key Biscayne started, there was a rainbow framing the Brickell skyline.

Hundreds of people came out to celebrate our annual Best Of edition -- which itself celebrates the people and places of Miami (how meta)!

Friends and fans of Miami New Times helped themselves to a giant buffet featuring fresh seafood, drank cocktails made with premium spirits, and played Ms. PacMan on a giant screen. Now, that's a good time!

Deep Eddy vodka served all sorts of delicious beverages, including one named after our favorite red head...the Lucy.

Check out these sea creatures!

Hitting the buffet!

Short Order reader Angela Rivero came out to celebrate! We love you, Angela!

We used to love when Ms. PacMan and PacMan got married. Wonder if they're still together?

Macallan brought out the good stuff...

Fueled up from the buffet and ready to party!

This Haitian rum tasted like a kiss from the islands.
