On a dark and stormy Friday night, the Portland Elite Squad turned out in full force (along with a few of our favorite Seattle yelpers) to party it up at the Green Papaya Bistro! Instantly enamored with the gorgeous venue, yelpers were greeted with delicious appetizers, stiff drinks, and entrancing beats by famed DJ RNA....(who looks an awful lot like Don B...)
Not only was bartender Jeff a ferocious acrobat, but a proven master mixologist as well, indulging yelpers with delicious concoctions such as lychee and lavender martinis, vanilla thai tea, sinful saigon coffee, and of course, the infamous Sex on Yelp's Face. You'll have to guess which one that is from the photos below.
By the end of the evening; new, old, and visiting yelpers were gettin' down on the dance floor - decked out in their new elite hoodies, no less! Even our amazing Yelp historian Andrew C turned the camera to auto-focus to shake what his mama gave him, alongside Elizabeth E, Alec B, Lorri E, and Kyle F.
A GIANT thank you to the hard-working, generous, and lovely staff at Green Papaya Bistro - you truly made the evening magic. GPB is definitely the new hot spot on the tracks with such a killer happy hour! DJ RNA and +1: you two are so awesome it hurts. Andrew C, the humble and ever-so-talented photographer, thanks for making us all look ever beautiful and fabulous. And finally, all the behind the scenes yelper-helpers, you are all loved and appreciated.
