Chicago Yelp Elites Shake Their Yelpmakers

Posted by Johnny Todd

After a long, cold winter, there was only one thing that Chicago Elites wanted to do: dance! So, it's a very good thing that the gracious hosts at Latin Rhythms Dance Studio invited close to 250 excited Chicago Yelp Elites and their guests to Shake Their Yelpmakers. And how does one shake a yelpmaker? We're so glad you asked!

To begin with, you start by arriving to a fantastic dance space in the West Loop, complete with brick walls, room to move, hard wood floors and high ceilings. Secondly, you have brilliant salsa dance instruction from LRDS' man with the golden feet: Victor. Thirdly, you bolster your resolve to become one with the rhythm by sipping glass after glass of the tastiest sangria in Chicago — courtesy of the folks from 1492 Tapas Bar. Finally, you step out on the dance floor with confidence and a full belly thanks to the bountiful Brazilian food from Sinha Elegant Cuisine.

In no time, our yelpers were movin' and groovin', dancin' to the music. For nearly two hours, the dance floor was theirs to show off moves both old and new but, most importantly, to just have fun. The bouncin' latin, hip-hop and club beats by DJ Rey Suarez kept everyone shakin' yelpmakers and what their mamas gave them all night long.

Luckily, super photog Melissa Hayes was able to document all the booty shakin', toasting and grateful noshing. See her action shots here. And, if you need to read all about it (and, we think you do), just click here. Nothing says 'Thank goodness it's Springtime' like some hot dancing, cool drinks and delicious food. Nothing says 'U Can't Touch This' like the smoking hot danseurs of the Yelp Chicago Elite Squad.

Until next time, SYOY!
