    Congrats to all the winners! Shandon (of Alair fame) def deserves this, she is an inspiration to us all.  Outer Space really adapted to the pandemic to keep their new business going, kudos to them. Janice is a legend, go eat at her shop, you won’t regret it.

    What a cool day. Congrats to everyone! Any year would be amazing, but this year especially. Almost 90 nominations in this community of people that have been pushing through and still giving back. It’s a pretty great place to live and work.
