Lights in the Heights 2011: From a half naked Gaga to DJ yard parties, was it the baddest fest yet?

Lights in the Heights 2011: From a half naked Gaga to DJ yard parties, was it the baddest fest yet?

If you attended Lights in the Heights 2011 Saturday, we can only hope you saw the pants-less Gaga lookalike traipsing up Studewood at the close to find an ATM. (One might think she'd be making cash, not withdrawing it, but one would be wrong.)

Or the full-on rager that got thrown on the corner of Bayland, where the homeowner-hired DJ progressed from spinning carols lackadaisically to blaring contemporary Top 40 by 9 p.m. for a dance party of hundreds. (Although the hours were shortened this year and the end time bumped from 10 p.m. to 9 p.m., it did little to calm the throngs — thankfully, we say.)

Or the solid ice shot luge at the home of a certain long-time party host on the west side of Studewood, who also had food trucks on hand.

Other notable sightings? Elfie, an English sheepdog with her own YouTube channel and Facebook page, and the band of couples who threw caution to the wind and simply pulled a full keg around in their red wagon, complete with a rope light-illuminated tap.

Although the parking was the worst ordeal ever and the crowd, it seemed, was even more massive than last year, the people, pooch and party-watching more than made up for it.

Tell us: What craziness did you see at Lights in the Heights?
