Tucson Elites Say SCREW IT!

Posted by Corey Dane

Close to 90 yelpers decided to let their hair down and throw caution to the wind at Tucson's first Elite Event of 2011: Screw Your Resolutions at Acacia!

These guys said "screw it" in style, dressed to impress in super swanky party attire, to celebrate the grand re-opening of one of Tucson's most well known restaurants. After only a week in their new digs, world famous chef Albert Hall and his staff pulled out all the stops to help Yelp Tucson re-ring in the New Year!

Sonoran hot dogs, pretzels with cheese dip, spicy shrimp and beef chiquitas, were washed down by servings of red and white wine, domestic beers, and a scarlett margarita with blood orange puree. Folks mixed and mingled while playing "Get Screwed" a game in which they had to find a fellow yelper wearing the opposite name-tag of theirs displaying "anti" resolutions.

Glamour and action shots were snapped by Dan Stein Photography, and the evening concluded with a count down and champagne toast at 11:59! Huge thank you to Albert Hall and his wife Lila, the incredible bartenders, cocktailers and food runners who kept attendees yelping "YUM" and to Dan the man for capturing great pics of the party people. Congrats to Jennifer D who took home two tix from Arizona Theatre Company for being the snazziest dressed yelper! For more recaps check out the reviews, and keep an eye out for Dan's shots to be posted soon!

I love chef albert Arlene and Shannon Photo gooth 

Happy Elite 2011 y'all!
