 Robin's Best Shirt Award, December 6, 2013

The last Robin's Best Shirt Award of 2013 took place at the Lol Ha Beach Bar on Friday, December 6th, and as one might expect, it was standing room only, with a pile of excellent shirts vying for this coveted award, thus giving the judges a very difficult time agreeing on a winner.  But they did.

January 2014 kicks off the 8th year of this world famous event, and it behooves you to be there, even though the house will be packed, and there is going to be a slew of classy entrants.
