Austin Elites Get Snugglie With Yelp
Ugly Sweaters are SO last year... even if they're really from 1989. Since Austin yelpers wanna be ironically hip, they rocked the blanket with sleeves at a bar this Sunday for our December elite event. People wore Snuggies as is or altered them to look especially hilarious. There's nothing like seeing a line of yelpers waiting to get into a bar whilst wearing mutiple and colorful snuggies. And the good news is that the great guys from smilebooth captured all of it right here!
The Original Moonshine was our sponsor, a delicious clear corn whiskey that put some fire in our blood. The Moonshine knowcked Krista K "on her ass and made her think she was much funnier and better looking." WIN! Elites enjoyed Old Fashioneds, Johnny AppleShines and Shine n Soda as they migrated around the gorgeous space. With dark floors and secret corners, a mix of modern and vintage furnitre and the best bar staff this side of the pecos, Icenhauer's played a perfect host to our snuggie-clad friends. Amy C queries "You know what's great? Icenhauers! It was a beautiful space, and the staff was lovely (both in the "nice" way and in the "good to look at" way)."
Between the whiskey and the pancakes and the snuggies, people were able to sit down, have conversations, play one of the myriad of board games laying around (Hungry Hungry Hippo!) and generally enjoy a casual event with 200 of their closest. Leah K lays it out: "I think I *may* still be drunk. I think I *may* be in love with Rainey St. bars. I know I love yelp elite parties."
Until the next soiree, SYOY!
