Yelp Dallas's Mad (Wo)Men Mob!

Posted by Nikki B

What do you get when you throw together 60s fashion, classic cocktails, fabulous appetizers and romantic retro swing? A Yelp Mad (Wo)Men Mob, of course!

Dallas yelpers were looking quite dapper last night at Arcodoro & Pomodoro, a swanky Italian restaurant located in the heart of Uptown. Silk gloves, suits, skinny ties and A-line dresses were seen everywhere in the inside bar and outdoor courtyard – so much, that we had to have an "applause-off" to determine the costume contest winner!

Everyone was treated to specialty pizzas and appetizers by Arcodoro & Pomodoro, and Buffalo Trace whiskey made for perfect Manhattans and Yelp's Old Fashioned cocktails. When done with their plates, yelpers picked up candy cigarettes to end the meal with a 60s bang. The smooth romantic retro sounds of The Hi-Lifers carried through the lights breeze outdoors, which set the mood for this classy affair.

A round of applause goes to Claire T, the costume contest winner, who handed over her prize of two tickets to The Great Culinary Escape (a $150 value, provided by CONTACT Crisis Lines) to the runner-up due to prior engagements. Congrats David P! Also, congratulations to Azmina A for winning the raffle prize – a Mad (Wo)Man Survival Kit

We said our goodbyes as the night ended to Nadeem A and Azmina A, two favorites among the Dallas Elite Squad, who are moving back to San Francisco. Good luck – we'll miss you guys!
