2007 AWAs Photos

by noizyboy December 11, 2007

Yeah, that’s our boy Hadyn hangin’ with Giovanni Ribisi at last week’s AWAs held at the mighty Mighty Mighty. Flight of the Conchord‘s Bret was there as well, to accept the Wellingtonian of the Year award, and Blam Blam Blam played and were awesome.

Oh yes, the Trendy Urban Class* were out in force to celebrate all that is good (and a little bad) about our fair city at last week’s Annual Wellingtonista Awards.

For more photos, head over here, where official photographer Mike has uploaded his pix from the evening.

Dominic MonaghanA reliable informant tells me that former hobbit and tv star Dominic Monaghan is in town, spotted browsing the fine fare at Whitcoulls in Courtenay Central.

I wonder whether he’ll be around long enough to have Sunday brunch at Fidel’s like the old days.
