From crimped hair and mullets, to 80's prom attire and retro watches, 150 yelp elites had the time of their lives on Thursday when they traveled back in time to 1985 for a totally Yelp 80's Prom at The Lexington's Cycle.
The Lexington in Downtown Phoenix opened their doors to the yelp elite squad and turned back the clock to a time when sporting fluorescent was cool and 16 Candles rocked the big screen. Upon arrival, special "it's time to yelp" watches welcomed elites as well as sweet treats including pop rocks and pixie sticks for a sugar high kick-start to the night!
While DJ P-body rocked classic 80's tunes over the speakers and The Breakfast Club played on the movie screen, yelpers sported their finest 80's prom attire and enjoyed tasty bites from The Lexington including Monica's Chicken Dip with pita crisps, sweet potato fries, pulled pork sliders, sundried tomato flatbread and smoked chicken flatbread. What's a prom without some punch? Not a prom at all, so luckily there was plenty of hibiscus punch and electric slide cocktails to go around and since the yelpers are all well over 21, this punch had a special spike to it thanks to Arroyo Vodka!
There were plenty of ways to capture the night and leave with memories to last a lifetime including a special yelp backdrop where elites struck their best prom poses and made it a Kodak moment with Owen Murray Photography. Artist Brad Hall kept his fingers busy by animating each guest with take-away caricatures and yelpers filled in the chalkboards with their best recaps of the 80's. As the evening slowly started to come to the end, the crowd crowned Tina and Bryan T as Yelp Prom King and Queen of the Yelp 80's prom! But the night didn't end when the yelp curtain went down! The Lexington offered special rates for those who wanted to party longer and elites continued with an after-party complete with karaoke and drink specials.
A special thank you goes out to Cycle at The Lexington, Up Agency, Arroyo Vodka, Owen Murray Photography, Brad Hall Art, DJ P-body and each and every tubular elite who made the party one for the record books! See what the yelpers have to say about the party here and don't forget to check out the pictures!
Over and out, until next time that is!
