Not even temperatures hotter than Greece itself could keep Philly Elites from a Mediterranean adventure on Monday night. Fortunately, the staff at Opa were ready with libations aplenty. The refreshing Antho cocktail made with Pearl Cucumber vodka, lemon juice and dill was a huge hit, as was the Koukla with Skyy Pineapple, lemon and lavender.
Samples from the menu were served buffet-style and were replenished with the quickness throughout the night. "Tender, juicy and oh so flavorful" souvlakia, also known as Maggie M's "favorite thing in the world" earned Opa several new fans.
Several yelpers and their guests made a beeline for the pop-up photo booth, where ever-popular faux mustaches were waiting. Everyone was also eager to show off their new bling – shiny red Yelp watches, "the best Yelp schwag" Nicey J has "ever seen!"
Big ups to the fantastic staff at Opa for their hospitality and cool as a cucumber bar handling. Thanks also to Southern Wine & Spirits, photographer James David Saul and last but not least, fab new intern Allison B! Don't forget to peep the pics, check out reviews, and see what yelpers are saying post-party!
