BITRSweet Awards 2018

I cannot thank everyone enough for making this girl feel like a star!  Everyone looked fantastic and seemed to have a great time!  And I didn’t even know Tuesdays were 2 for 1 at the bar- but noted for next time!

Here is a comprehensive list of the winners from last night’s awards.  If you were not there, and someone did not accept your award on your behalf- please contact me:)

Also!  TREMENDOUS Shout outs to everyone who made this possible:  from my guest presenters (Brad Norris, Ann Turiano, Chris Cotterman, Dominic Gladden, Zipporah Brown, Amy Bell and Greg Bell), to Cassandra Miller and Tori Munoz at Motor house, to Betse Lysons and Haley Horton who worked check-in, to my husband and kids to set up and cleaned up (way past their bed time), and my BFF Joanna Metzbower who helped with everything up to and at the awards.  Wheh!  I am sure I forgot someone!  Oh- Dean Carlson and Baltimore Shakespeare Factory for crashing my party with a man in tights (my favorite!  how did you know?) and Shealyn Jae Photography.  There is a link at the bottom of the page to view all the amazing photos!

I truly am blessed to be so well received by artists I envy, I admire, and I look forward to seeing more of in the future.  Oh yeah, and go see a show….
