Drum roll, please-and a trumpet fanfare as well-for 2008 was a trying year all around, but in spite of economic adversity and bureaucratic hassles that would test the mettle of even the most diehard promoters, producers, deejays, and revelers, the nightlife world still managed to show the diurnal world that creativity and magic flourish when the sun goes down. Without further ado, EDGE brings you the 2008 BEST OF EDGE: NIGHTLIFE Awards-in which all that is good about the nightlife industry is duly commended and celebrated.
Given the anxieties and genuine hardships of 2008, it’s a relief to finally tally up the year and find what was worthy of celebration. Hence the 2008 BEST OF EDGE: PARTIES Awards list-in which the best parties of 2008 are honored, not only for taking our minds off the hiccups of the real world, but for reminding us that all work and no play makes the world a nasty place. For, as Barbara Ehrenreich reminds us, it is when we come together to play that we find "collective joy"-and subconsciously honor all the good times and good peoples who have come before us. And now, without further ado, the winners of this year’s best parties.
