Haystack Pizza: Giant Candy Canes & Deflated Trees [Photo: Eater Inbox]
As the new year looms, the holiday season has come and past, and with it, the inaugural Eater Holiday Photo Contest Extravaganza. The challenge: submit photos of the most ridiculous, aesthetically-challenged restaurant and bar holiday decorations in town. The incentive: a cool $100, no questions asked. We received several great nominations of holiday cheer, including the sensory explosion in Noe Valley pictured above. But whose photo reigned supreme?
The Christopher Walken Award for Best Deadpan Delivery: Pergamino
The Machine-Gun Frosty Award for Most Homicidal Giant Snowman: random liquor store
Honorable Evil Snowman Mention: Savor
And our Grand Prize winner and recipient of the $100 cash prize is the frontrunner throughout our little contest, this moment of sheer brilliance from Figaro on Columbus:
Thanks to everyone who submitted a photo or two, and of course, happy holidays.
