Pics of WTIA’s big bash: Corndogs and Atari, yum yum

The WTIA is about to announce its annual award winners at its 25th anniversary celebration at the Paramount Theatre, but I’ve got a few picks of my own.

I nominate the mini corndogs and the bags of fresh caramel corn that Tom Douglas catered for the unusual event.

Instead of a sleepy dinner at a downtown hotel, the WTIA is holding what feels like a business casual frat party, with bright lights and video game stations – including Wiis and a set of ancient Ataris – around the room.

“This is dude food,” a woman next to me said as she turned away from the buffet’s tater tot station.

A few snapshots:

The governor’s supposed to be here soon.

(Ooops – posted too soon. Just heard from the state’s new commerce secretary, ex Microsoft VP Rogers Weed, that the governor won’t make it because she’s too busy in Olympia.)
