There’s a towering totem pole, a pirate flag unfurled high above a tiki hut-slash-bar, a vintage-clothing store that might be mistaken for the Seven Dwarves’ guest cottage, a free-standing art gallery and light strings swooping from the full-size caravan/backdrop to a two-tiered, fabric-draped stage. Half musical tailgate, half Tijuana street fair, Katie Cewe’s Gypsy Den hands down wins the title of Best Neon Reverb Addition (Venue Division). Oh yeah, and bands Kid Meets Cougar, Cats From Japan and Pan de Sal weren’t bad, either.
