New Times Best Of Release Party at The Rusty Pelican

1 of 116
Yesterday's late afternoon thunderstorm might have looked threatening, but by the time last night's Best of Miami and Best of Broward-Palm Beach 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 South Florida. (How meta!) Photos by Karli Evans
