What do you get when you combine world class athletes, wacky costumes, daytime drinking, a pink gorilla, and a 7.46 mile walk/dance party from one side of town to the other? While it might sound like some kind of comedy starring Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn, it's actually what many locals consider to be the event of the year... the 99th annual ING Bay to Breakers! It came and went like a thief in the night, but if you're an employer, we have photographic proof that there's more than meets the eye in regards to those mysterious sick days likely being utilized in record fashion on this manic Monday.
Yelp teamed up with Bay to Breakers to host the infamous costume contest outside of the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park, and as expected, the creative juices weren't just flowing... they were gushing! While there were numerous people we could have awarded for their superior outfits, we've just left the mysterious costume conclave and have settled on the five following winners:
MOST CREATIVE: Tapatio VS. Cholula
BEST GROUP: Night at the Museum
BEST CALIFORNIA THEME: ING Bay to Breakers "99" ladies!
BEST CURRENT EVENT THEME: S&P index
BEST GREEN THEME: Palace Hotel Salad Goddesses
Congrats to the winners, and we'll see you next year for the 100th running of Bay to Breakers! For more pictures, click here!
