The Yelp Elite Squad ushered out a frosty Chicago February on 2/27/08 at swanky Sura Thai Bistro, a budding Lakeview favorite. A funky mod interior served as the backdrop while over 120 yelpers downed crisp cucumber martinis and fabulous Thai fusion finger food, compliments of the fabulous hosts at Sura.
After a few of potent cuketinis, yelpers bobbed, swayed…and ahem...shook their fine selves to the beats of the "Master Blaster" himself, DJ Nikki C of Fliptopian World Music. Fine yelper Lisa B even performed an impromptu (albeit PG-13) pole dance as Rocky B , Brandie T and other yelpers cheered her on! Check out the reviews and chatter about this bash for more on the inside shenanigans at Sura…
Eggshell-pod chairs near the bar proved to be irresistible… I mean, chairs hanging from the ceiling? Brilliant! But near the bar? Far surpasses genius. Major props to the skillful, charming bartenders who kept the drinks flowin' for the crowd of thirsty yelpers.
Also, many thanks to The Bar Method and Chemically Imbalanced Comedy, newly opened Lakeview businesses, for providing the stellar raffle prizes. The lovely Dallas H took home a 5-class package from The Bar Method, and a Liz K's lucky "plus one," Andrew, scored $25 worth of tix to check out a Chemically Imbalanced show. (He better take her with, eh?) Thanks for keepin' it local, sponsors!
Oh, and the icing on the cake…elite hoodies! Enjoy and hope they keep y'all warm. More events on the way…stay tuned!
