Mr. and Miss Williamsburg Pageant
Its not hard to spot them: Theyre usually sporting skinny jeans, moccasins, American Apparel rags, and Ray-Bans, talking about how they despise the world as they make their way to the nearest can of PBR on Bedford. Tonight, find out whos the most irritating (er, we mean hippest) of them all at the Mr. and Miss Williamsburg Pageant. Founded by hipster Misha Calvertwho claims that the pageant is a part of the court-ordered community service she was sentenced to perform after being arrested for stealing a few Colt 45s (groan)the contest will be judged in three categories: personal interviews, streetwear, and talent.

I have absolute faith in their taste. (Double groan.)
Fridays, 10 p.m. Starts: Sept. 5. Continues through Sept. 6, 2008
