The fancy and the funky headed to Brimson last weekend for Hugo’s third annual prom. Owners Jody and Gary Hepola reported that about 100 people turned out for the event, including Hugo Hellman himself, accompanied by his daughter-in-law, Mary Hellman.

“We had a great turn out…lots of good looking couples,” Jody Hepola said. “Some dressed very elegantly and some dressed in some fun, vintage outfits. For many, it was their first prom ever and they were all asking when it will be next year.”
