Austin elites busted out of their straight laced world into a full dose of Lady GaGa inspired madness this Tuesday. We rampaged Oilcan Harry's with more glitter and more gutz than any Yelp party to date. And that's sayin' something! Patent leather, thigh high boots, wild hair styles, wigs galore and a frenetic and fabulous energy were the harbingers of one of our best Yelp events ever. Put aptly by Ryan S: "Some of y'all got more balls than Gaga for the outfits you wore. Dayum!"
Three Olives Vodka brought their A-Game (and their Poker Face) with Cherry, DUDE and naked vodka flavors, O Face T shirts for the first 30 yelpers and three gorgeous girls carrying around Code Red shots. We mixed it up with zero cal Honest Tea's Honest Ade for some fabulous fruity summer concoctions. Meanwhile, a tall spartan circulated amongst the crowd with speared bites of Spartan Pizza and two gorgeous men dished up three different kinds of Sushi Zushi. Of course, who can eat when you're getting made up by Baldo Face Painting? Body art FTW!
And that's not all folks. Some of our fave yelpers had never seen a drag show (gasp!) so they were especially wowed by the absolutely lovely ladies of La Cage and our charismatic super MC Rob Faubion. This is the closest Monica O has "been to a perfect, expertly constructed cabaret queen goddess and Steve Martin's double." Fab photos of the crew were taken, and tweeted, by Ben & Bianca from Carlos Pena Photography. We'll have final figures on what we raised for the Capital City Mens Chorus but huge thanks to Austin All Maids, the Yay or Nay Sip & Splash boat party, Zach Scott Theater & NeuSkin for the prizes.
Don't believe we could squeeze all of this into two hours? Well see for yourself! Check the reviews on the party listing and take a mo to ogle the amazing photos. Oh, and the aftermath. Equally legendary. From Yolanda G: I'm pretty sure that I'll be sleeping with glitter and finding random feathers for the next week in my room. That's ok, because I still want to do it all over again!"
Until our next soiree, SYOY!
