It’s the holiday season, and in the spirit of giving, the Crunchies Monkey made a visit to the TechCrunch office during our annual holiday party. He celebrated the year by exchanging gifts with a few of our TechCrunch staffers, handing out invitations to the 8th Annual Crunchies Awards Ceremony in the process.
Nominations for the awards are now closed, but soon enough we’ll open voting to determine who we give Crunchies Awards to next year. In early January, the top choices for each category will be announced and you’ll be able to cast support for all your favorites.
In the meantime, it’s probably a good time to buy tickets for the event. Every year we celebrate all the best and brightest in the world of tech, and this year won’t be any different.
The awards ceremony, which will be held at Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco on February 5, will be hosted by Silicon Valley‘s T.J. Miller this year, so it’s bound to be a good time. There will also be a happy hour afterward during which you can drink, make merry and complain that your startup didn’t win or complain about those that did.
The event sold out last year, so you’ll want to get in early. And hey, Crunchies tickets make great stocking stuffers for the tech-obsessed in your household.
