Yelp Las Vegas Gets Contemporary
Las Vegas yelpers feasted on three courses of culture Wednesday at Yelp Gets Contemporary. The evening started with an appetizer course of bacon-wrapped dates, torta espagnola, pan con tomate and artichoke, serrano ham with manchego cheese and stuffed cherry peppers with taro chips from hometown tapas favorite Firefly at Trifecta Gallery. The tasty bites were washed down with some Neon Grey Goose martinis. Inspired by the art in the air and the theme of hometown love, yelpers showed up with pictures of home and created their very own special installation.
The entrée course of three-color curry from Mix Zone Cafe was served up in the Contemporary Arts Center, where local artist Erin Stellmon spoke about her latest installation "Reign of Glass" while Team Yelp sipped Martini & Rossi Asti.
And, of course, no dinner is complete without
dessert: mini-cupcakes from The
Cupcakery and iced Illy
Issimo coffees at Brett Wesley Gallery. We had to cross the street, but
everyone arrived safely and sweetly.
We set out to prove that Vegas does indeed have culture, and not only did we prove it, we sampled it, savored it and even got to take some home thanks to some amazing raffle prizes, including a Casey Weldon painting valued at $300 donated by Trifecta Gallery.
Stay cultured Las Vegas!
