Elites Dress Up Like the Internet for Yelp's HallowMEME Party @ The State Theatre
Northern Virginia Elites and their guests were treated to one heckuva Halloween dance party last Thursday at The State Theatre, one of Northern Virginia's most legendary music venues. Yelp's HallowMEME Party was a true celebration of all things internet-related AND Halloween-related, as folks were encouraged to wear costumes inspired by their favorite memes.
There were plenty of Grumpy Cats, McKayla Maroneys, government shutdown puns, and one particularly impressive homemade hedgehog costume that took home a prize. Ben Powell Photography was there with a photobooth to capture every hilarious (and clever!) costume.
Attendees grooved to the tunes of local cover band, Flow in the Dark -- dressed as Candy Crush -- who got rave reviews from the crowd. As Dan H explains, "Did anybody see a dog wagging his tail out of the dance floor? Sorry, that was me. Couldn't help it...that band was funktastic!"
Guests got down on the dance floor while enjoying nibbles from The State Theatre, Bakeshop, and The Chocolate Chick. And not only did The State Theatre have the most incredibly Halloween decorations up, they also hooked up guests with amazing specialty cocktails, with perfectly ghoulish names like The Headless Horseman and Witch's Brew.
Three cheers to HallowMEME! You can check out the reviews of the event here, and if you've got an itch to find out how you can get the in on parties like this, check out why it's neat to be Elite now!
