LA East Elites Get Nerdy
At the check-in area, Belly Bombz food truck entertained our taste buds with their Asian style chicken wing flavors like the Firecracker and Bomb Dust. Upon entry, Elites were handed a pair of nerdy Yelp glasses and encouraged to make a contribution to help the Youth Science Center in Hacienda Heights--we raised nearly $500 for the center to continue providing science education to local youths!
As the Elites made their way through the gallery, they found themselves amid a sea of Big Bang Theory inspired artworks, quotes, and yes, even a “Bazinga!” ball pit! Tiffany C got the chance to check that off her bucket list, "When's the last time you jumped into a ball pit!? I can officially say I did at this event!"
And the fun was just starting. A long line of nerds gathered around Socha Tea as they turned freshly brewed premium tea into refreshing fruit infused mocktails and cocktails. After quenching their thirst, Elites rolled on to sushi and edamame lightly tossed with sesame oil and dashed with spices courtesy of Happy Rolls. Mwokaji Cakery served up decadent and moist red velvet cake dolloped with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate swirls, while Fluff Ice shaved Thai Tea and Taro flavored snow.
Next door, the DIY Penny Blossom station served as not only a crafting session but also a break spot to catch up with other lovely Elites. Before heading upstairs, nerdy beauties poured Mike's Hard Lemonade and Cayman Jack Margaritas, complete with salt and lime service! As Elites made their way up the stairs, they found a friendly smile serving cold Lagunitas pilsner and IPA’s in Yelp koozies! Last but not least, a huge line of anxious nerds waited to hop into the Snapgram PhotoBooth for some quirky fun with creative props galore!
With tummies filled and thirsts quenched, our nerdy evening came to a close as Mandi T wishes all a very goodnight with, "Soft kitty, Warm kitty, Little ball of fur. Happy kitty, Sleepy kitty, Purr, purr, purr."
Until next time, SYOY!
