Sorry for the panic of Twitter last night! Basically, The Beat‘s table included Kyle Baker, Dean Haspiel, and Ben McCool, so to say there were laughs afoot would be an understatement. We were all kidding about the deadly-looking steak knives when it turned out that Kyle had cut his finger buttering bread. Someone called a waiter over and the waiter intoned “Come with me!” and TWO people led Kyle off to get a Band-Aid. It was funny at the time but not as funny when it was Twittered. Anyway, at least one other person cut themselves with those darned knives. They are truly SNAPPED-worthy.
The highlight of the night was legend Nick Cardy getting the Hero Award. As presenter Todd Dezago explained, no one even knows how old Nick really is — either 88 or 89…but either way, he’s a treasure to be around.
A few photos of Table 1 hijinks:
Dean opted for double the meat.
Henrik Andreasen is unafraid of the Harvey knife danger.
We have lots more pictures that aren’t on Flickr…posting later.
