We got our weekend off to a great start on Friday, September 9, with the SF Weekly Web Awards party at 111 Minna. Bloggers, app makers, Twitter addicts, and all kinds of people who have "social media" in their job title rubbed shoulders, enjoying some adult beverages, fair trade vodka, Bacon Bacon delicacies, and tasty treats from Heartbakers. Check out our full slideshow of the SF Weekly Web Awards here.
Also, whoever stole Brian Wilson's plaque for Best Media Personality Twitter: nicely done. Also: give it back.
The Reader's Choice Winners, and a full list of winners and nominees after the jump.
