Question o' the Week: What was your favorite part of the 2013 Best of Jackson party?

Jenny Mixon The performers and mimes interacting with the crowd and the blackberry-infused Cathead vodka.

Phingaprint Washington When the nicely dressed guy did his dance to Gangnam Style on stage and when Southern Komfort Brass Band took the stage!

Lisa Alexander The theme was amazing and gave people a chance to go all out. Glad to see so many did. The Cathead room and vodka rocked. And Metrocenter was an awesome location. Not near as overcrowded as past venues!! Thanks for throwing the best party in Jackson.

Inky Theclown I would have to say Magician Robert Day and Inky The Clown!!! :o)

Chris MaestroBarber Paige The turnout! So many people came out!

Wendy Shenefelt Fleming Not the mimes! (I have metamfiezomaiophobia.) But it's always the people. Having it at Metrocemter gave us the space to move around and have real conversations with people. Other top contenders: performers (other than the mimes), different rooms or stations where we could break off, DJ Phingaprint. Always.

Nicole Duvall Josh Hailey's photobooth and the clown!!

Sirena Wilson Metrocenter was the perfect spot this year. Everyone felt safe with the visibility of the police department when you drove up. The atmosphere was so upbeat! This was the best! It showed Jackson as a premier party place without the violence! Way to go JFP!! You outdid yourself this year.

Thabi Digitalindiegirl Moyo Hearing about it all the way in New York City! Way to go Best of Jackson. #bestofmississippi

Gaylen Regan (Donna Ladd's) makeup! (by Emily Goode, official party makeup artist). Abita Andygator and Jockamo on tap! The Geisha girl burlesque wasn't bad either.

Caroline Crawford The Burlesque performer. That was a risk. I was glad to see female sensuality respected and not shamed.

Tracey Thompson The geisha girls at the beginning of handing out of awards.

DJ Young Venom The Cathead Vodka Lounge in the old Victoria Secret.

Nicholas Dodd Watching grown adults trying to hula-hoop, while listening to Lazy Jane with a good drink in my hand.

Curtis Kamau Davis Jackson has its own feel. Its not like NY, it's not like ATL, it is uniquely Jackson and we should be proud of that.
