On Thursday, March 20, City Paper staffers and readers got together to do something Washingtonians usually can’t: vote. Fueled by adult (CPtini, anyone?) and non-adult (Vitamin Water, friend?) beverages, the crowd poured over the 2008 Best of DC. ballot, offering their picks for Best Brunch, Best Local Band, Best Gym, and a slew of other categories. Missed the party? Check out the pictures below.

It was a damn good time, but you didn’t miss out completely. Vote online until Friday, April 4.
