Visions of bold red and silver adorned yelpers painted the much buzzed about new hotspot Kaama Lounge's parking lot, as the personable Premier Valet staff quickly parked arriving guest's hot rides with ease. Once Kaama's doors opened, yelpers excitedly made their way inside the swank maroon and silver decorated lounge, for an energetic night of bumping music by DJ JoJo, elaborate fruity cocktails, innovative delicious bites, and a HOT swimwear fashion show that left everyone wide-eyed and speechless.
A stunning spread of Kaama's appetizers, which are basically a unique spin on traditional comfort foods, born from the talented minds and hands of Executive chef Matt Mermod and Sous- chef Megan Croom, were passed throughout the night by Kaama's "pleasant" and "on top of their game," staff. Everything from Nachos (Blue corn chips topped with spicy goat cheese, truffled wild mushrooms,
and pico de gallo, to Pigs in a Blanket (House-made chicken apple sausage and fresh jalapeno wrapped in rice
paper, served with cranberry chipotle dipping sauce) to delightful bites of Shrimp Cocktail (Coconut poached prawns mixed with grilled pineapple, grapefruit
segments, and a tomatillo lime jam, served with yuca chips) were served with a smile to salivating guests like Dennis O and Margo G.
While yelpers caught up with each other on Kaama's low and sexy seating, others like Stanley C and Mona W gathered around the bar, eager to sample Kaama's superstar bartender Jared's brilliant and "exotic" drink recipes. Jo
H and Julia H, basked in the chic ambiance while sipping on decadent cocktails like the Blackberry Sidecar – "Can you say KAPOW?" – the Pink Lemonade Martini, the Yelp 5 Star, the Strawberry Ginger Fizz, and the Watermelon Cooler. Yum!
As the night progressed, the walkways were quickly cleared for what promised to be a wowing show. Rexy Q Designs' (for inquiries, email: firstname.lastname@example.org) hip and sexy couture swimsuits and dresses did not disappoint. Everyone was awed as the stunning array of models, including Yelp's own Jenisis S, Kathy B, and of course the fabulous Silicon Valley CM Connie C, sashayed around Kaama's booths and dance-floor with confidence, sporting sexy voluminous hair by Angelo Canales of Scandalous Salon in Willow Glen, flawless vibrant makeup by Aimee Lam, glowing tans by Liquid Sunshine and accessories from Stella
& Dot styled by Pauline L.
The fashion show ended with a crowd resounding roar, just in time for the raffle winners to be announced. A slew of winners, including Jeannette Z claimed their coveted gifts, as outstanding DJ JoJo rocked the place with a killer line-up of booty shaking songs that had Kaama full of fierce five star dance moves. The festivities continued well after 9:00pm as yelpers continued the rocking dance party, and perused Kaama's dinner menu for late night eats.
Judging by the the plethora of detail filled reviews here, and the wealth of action packed shots by Carol L, Ian L, and Cindy C, it looks like the night was nothing less than fabulous! A big resounding thanks to Kaama's owner Radhika and the rest of the amazing Kaama staff for making the night such a resounding success!
