To celebrate the “Best of” Somerville and Cambridge businesses, Scout Magazine honored all of the award winners with their first annual SHAG Awards 2014 on Thursday, September 18th, at the historical Somerville Theatre in Davis Square (oh, behave). The Scout’s Honored Awards Gala brought together the best of the best, along with providing the audience with a variety of delightful performances, including circus acts, hula hoops, live music, and a little number from the cast of Slutcracker. With the endless red carpet, tasty cocktails, and amazing after-party sponsored by Cuisine En Locale (156 Highland Avenue), it was hard not to leave the event with an intense pride for the innovative local businesses in our community. Co-hosts, Joe and KyAnn were asked to participate in the event by presenting awards throughout the evening. Believe it or not, Joe cleans up pretty nicely too. Congratulations to ALL of the 2014 SHAG winners!
