Last night saw the Metro Detroit Elite Squad breaking into the Vault to get geeky! Venturing into the depths of the Vault of Midnight's secret hideout, yelpers were greeted by a bar stocked with brews (Espresso Love & Brasserie Blonde) from local Arbor Brewing Company, as well as refreshing cocktails featuring black cherry Zodiac vodka.
The walls were already be-decked with posters, action figures, and all sorts of pop-culture ephemera, giving everyone plenty of inspiration prior to their foray into the photo room. Super hero props galore led to the invention of many new combo heroes (robo-sword-Batman, anyone?) — all snapped by Danny M. There were also some pretty hot classic video game throw downs going on throughout the night.
Lovely finger foods and cake were provided by the ladies of Sparrow Market's Taste Our Goods, as DJs Charles Trees and Jeremy W provided the soundtrack. The topper to the evening, however, was the prize drawing for the Wonder Woman tiara… with new yelper Erin F winning the golden crown.
Many many thanks to Liz, Curtis, Christian, Nick and the whole Vault of Midnight crew, as well as barkeeps Ayron N and Louis P, all of our aforementioned sponsors, and most of all… all of the super elites who came out and dressed up to make this one SUPER night!
Yours in Yelp Geekery,
