Vive Le Yelp!
At the post Bastille Day Soiree, Elites and their guests sampled hors d'oevres & amuse bouche like pear pancetta with goat cheese & basil honey
(plus a veg version sans pancetta), several varieties of specialty
pizza, ahi tuna & mango on wonton crisps, and then there was the cerviche bar. Mon Dieu!
Let us eat cake! As in, four varieties of cupcakes from Cup Cake Á la Mode. Marie Antoinette never could have had it so good. Cocktails included the Guillotini, French Martini, as well as red wines.
DJ Keith spun world beat music and there was much tête a tête via a party game of find the Fleur De Lis in which everyone got into groups to answer yelpy questions and win Parisian prizes. There were lots of new faces in attendance including Chris "Peaches" G who had this to say about her experience: "My first Elite Event and it was fabulous! I met so many great people! The room was very intimate, yet never felt crowded...You made this newbie feel quite welcome!." Former Yelp Scout (and current Elite) Kelsey C was present and we got to give her props for helping set the ground work for Yelp Kansas City.
Merci Beaucoup to Paul and Ralf of re:Verse, their amazing and helpful staff, Lisa of Cupcake Á La Mode and of course to the tres merveilleux Kansas City Elite Squad. Be sure and visit the flickr page to see more photos and don't forget to read the reviews!
Until next time, à bientôt!Joi B
