Meet Your 2013 Rutabaga Queen: Lady Luck! (RUTABAGA BALL PHOTOS)
(Click ‘em to big ‘em.)
At Saturday night’s Kinetic Rutabaga Ball, Taylor “Lady Luck” Depew (above) bested the kompetition and was named the 2013 Rutabaga Queen. (For more on the Johnny BerryPicker-no show controversy of the evening, check out ball emcee Cliff Berkowitz’s play-by-play here.)
Your Lost Koast Outpost was on hand to capture the color of the evening, dance erratically and suck back Fat Tires. Time well spent. This morning, we rolled out of bed and remembered we’d taken some pictures.
Here they be:
