Last Saturday over 140 Elites and guests got decked out and were dressed to impress as they descended upon Las Olas for the award show of the year: The First Annual BPB Yelpies!
The event was held at the ultra VIP lounge VIBE
. From the second Yelpers arrived they were wowed with amazing tunes, ever changing neon lights, impeccable service
and the option to chill out in the VIP sections or hit the dance floor to mingle. Chopin Vodka
cocktails were flowing the entire night as well as a selection of red or white wines. The fine folks at New Belgium Brewery
offered up a selection of beers to choose from including: Fat Tire Amber, Ranger IPA, Accumulation White IPA, Sunshine Wheat and Trippel.
Light bites were provided by Yolo
and included: Grilled Shrimp, Mini Short Rib Grilled Cheese, Crab Tostada, Mushroom Tart, Conch Fritter, Ceviche Plantain, Skewered Beef, Tuna Tar Tar, Smoked Mussels, Truffle Mac & Cheese.
As great as the sips and bites were, we were here to announce the winners! Trophies were given out to some of the best Yelpers in the community for the past year, in various categories. The Yelpies went to:
The winners weren't the only ones getting some Yelp hardware for their homes/office desks. Special Gold Elite badges were given out to Gold Elites.
The members of the BPB who attended and received their gold badges were: Doris L, Cherine A, Greshka P and Santiago A.
What's an award show without some performances? The multitalented Phil Barnes
put on an amazing performance with a medley of current pop hits
and then turned every woman in the building into a screaming teenager
with a performance of "I Want It That Way." Lighting up the night were the ILLuminautians
, with an 8 foot tall dancing cyborg
equipped with LED lights, lasers and some killer dance moves.
