"A Night Before Yelpmas" Pajama Party at El Rey Theatre
The invite says it all:
'Twas the night before Yelpmas, when all through LA
Every Elite was stirring, inside the El Rey;
The decorations were hung from the stage with care;
Time to enjoy the holidays if you dare.
Start searching for a festive pajama find;
While visions of cocktails dance in your mind;
You in your flannel, and us in our onesies;
One thing's for sure the pictures will be funsies.
Out in the main room there will be yummy bites;
And on the marquee Yelp's name up in lights;
Our favorite DJs will fill the room with song;
And the huge dancefloor will let you Duggy all evening long;
So on Thursday the 9th, make sure you clear the night
For the Yelp Holiday Party is always an amazing sight!
Merry cheer filled up the El Rey, as Elites and their plus ones pajama jammy jammed like nobody's business. They snacked on mole tamales and lime grasshoppers (yes, those kind of grasshoppers!) from Guelaguetza, bacon-wrapped tots and hummus from hot spot Libertine, and red velvet cupcakes and banana cream pudding from the legendary Magnolia Bakery. Spirits of the liquid variety were flowing like egg nog thanks to VeeV vodka and (ri)1 whiskey and those fast, friendly bartenders. The stage turned into an electronic playground as Newegg entertained guests with not one, but two Xbox Kinnect consuls and Newestra cranked out the dance-worthy tunes. Not only did the first 25 people to show their check-ins upon entrance receive tickets to the Santa Anita Park Food Truck Event, but a handful of lucky raffle winners took home a Frederick's of Hollywood gift package, a pair of tickets to HAIR at Pantages Theatre, signed CD packs, Blue Tooths and even a digital camera (courtesy of Newegg). Onesies were captured by Project Photobooth, Kwirious Photography, and AK Photography. A festive time was had by all, just take a look. More pics to come!
And since it's the season of giving, Yelp LA collected over $1,100 and 300+ books for L.A. Works!
