It was a warm 85 degrees in Manhattan Beach this past Saturday and the AC was cranked up full blast at the Belamar Hotel in preparation for the LA Yelp Elite Squad who came dressed, pressed and ready to party for the first ever Yelp event held in the South Bay.The lovely ladies of Yelp arrived in their sassy sun dresses, with the boys hot on their heels (and sandals).
The brand new Second Story Restaurant's retro vibe provided an unique setting for this year's Spring Fling, complete with kitchy modern furnishings and flat screen TVs that played old episodes of the Brady Bunch and Charlie's Angels.
The wonderful folks over at Second Story Restaurant provided passed hors d'oeuvres, making sure that everyone had the opportunity to 'eat & drink' from their sustainable New American-style menu. Three super tasty Summer-inspired cocktails were served compliments of St. Germain, ultra premium elderflower liqueur.
Post party action came in the form of a roller derby match as the Angel City Derby Girls Shore Shots crew battled the Bakersfield Rollergirls in their new home, the Toyota Sports Center. Yelp was on hand as an official sponsor, and to support our local derby girls.
The lovely and talented yelper, Amy K snapped the official event photos, and a team of yelper shutterbugs followed suit to capture the day's festivities on film: Christopher K, Felicia C, Joan S, Judy W, and Amy K. If you missed out on the fun, you can look forward to an equally awesome May Elite event, but in the meantime you can reminisce about fun times had by all and check out the Spring Fling party photos here!
A special thanks to Chris Carignan & Jenny Weston from Second Story Restaurant, for helping organize this incredible event! Also thanks to Chris & Shane, the rad DJ's over at Groove 24/7 online radio station for keeping the hot bodies shakin' with their signature brand of funky music.
Until next time, SYOY,
