Yelp OTP's FIRST Elite Event at Moondance Restaurant and Lounge

Posted by HeidiP

Elites of OTP and Atlanta and their guests, plus potential Elite's from the Suwanee area were all invited to join us at the swanky Moondance Restaurant and Lounge.  Yelpers gathered in the beautiful bar area surrounded by dark wood, flat screen tvs (which Tom E barely noticed: “What was on TV? I was having too much fun talking to people”) and miles of bottles of booze!

Owner Chris Alestra was on target and super welcoming. Hildee I explained, “Once in a while when you go to a restaurant you get to meet the owner. Last night not only was she there but she helped clean up spilled water from our dinner table.” The servers and bartenders rocked our world and Chef Todd filled our bellies. Passed hors d'oeuvres included chicken kabobs and shrimp tempura, and heaping bowls of pasta salad were presented.

YELPO was played and yelpers had to find out amongst themselves who never misses an opportunity to pick up change, who types 75 WPM, who likes to keep their glass filled (who doesn’t?) and more.  The winner, Hildee I, scored tix to a Pig Roast at Teela Taqueria for this Saturday!  Runner up Jose O got to strut out the door with his oversized, brand new, orange, foam cowboy hat!


We wet our spirituous whistles with Status Vodka and Red Hare beer: both local nips. Also thanks to Erica Hill at Jade Umbrella PR for making our vodka dreams come true. We passed up plain ol’ juice mixers for Nawgan, courtesy of Charlie B, and even elite wannabe Michelle S is hooked! “The drinks were good, dessert was great. Nice vibe; I will for sure be going back!”

Elite Duc L thought it was a “great time to see some old faces and some new news.” Stephen M caught all the dirt in digital files and stashed 'em here. We even had party crashers! We showed off our burbs to some special Atlanta Elite like Nikki K who quipped, “So what if I'm not OTP?” Vivien W wraps it up nicely, “There was plenty of food and mixed drinks, and a great showing of yelpers!” OTP we have liftoff!
