Honolulu Elites Show Us Their Yelps At Indigo

Posted by Emi H

Not ones to blink at a bit of extra gluttony, 125+ Honolulu Yelp Elites (and their +1s) got a head start on Fat Tuesday by celebrating with Yelpi Gras at Indigo Restaurant & Ultra LoungeDecked out in masks, beads, feather boas and other festive garb, yelpers gathered for an evening of deliciously sinful revelry!

Toting around a mask can make you thirsty and guests enjoyed an array of specialty cocktails made with Cruzan rum such as Arnold-tinis, Tropical Hurricanes, Capirihinas and Coconut Martinis. The drinks were almost too pretty to sip, but somehow we managed to gulp a few down!

All that drinkin' sure can work up an appetite and lucky yelpers were treated to what seemed like endless baskets of deep fried shrimp, beef skewers, goat cheese won tons, crab cakes and platters of cucumbers with lomi salmon & crab.

Throughout the evening Yeeps bumped their rumps to the DJ, relaxed outside on the lanai, and gabbed about their latest yelpy food finds with new found friends. As a special surprise party yeeps each received a free ID discount card (normally $40 online) courtesy of Indigo which gave them deals on local eateries and retail stores. In addition, trivia hungry yelpers got their chance to win pairs of tickets the upcoming Hawai'i Theatre show "Jump: From Sounth Korea."

Yelp Elite Michael S sums it up: "What can I say? Great drinks, tons of tasty food that kept on coming, beads everywhere. Best of all free gold coins! I'm rich!" Well not quite, but it ain't all about the money!
