…For the Yelp Dallas Ugly Holiday Bash! Over 110 Elites and their guests gathered under the cozy covered patio at Bolsa, in the heart of the Bishop Arts District. Many smiles, laughs and a couple of spills were shared while a heater as large as the Sun kept everyone nice and snug!
Bolsa, named D Magazine's best restaurant of 2009, put out the best of their menu to showcase their fabulous bruschetta and flatbreads. Flavors ranged from smoked salmon to Texas tomatoes with goat cheese to locally-made sausage, and yelpers gobbled it up as fast as Santa devours cookies and milk. Guests washed it all down with Bolsa's specialty holiday drink — mulled wine. Harpoon Brewery kept all the beer-lovers happy with their IPA brew, and no glass across the room went empty.
Yelpers showed their holiday spirit by boasting their most ridiculous holiday sweaters. Across the crowd you could see a light-up and musical sweaters, horribly homemade sweaters and plenty from the back of the closet.
Those who brought gifts for the White Elephant gift exchange all had a chance to pick from the pile and open their tacky presents. After all, who doesn't want a Low Riders two-disc set, a Chia pet or pinecone candles? And Dallas yelpers don't just get, they give too! Elites and guests alike brought bag after bag of canned food items to donate to the North Texas Food Bank. After all was said and done, over 250 pounds of donated food was collected and will be distributed to local families in need during the holiday season!
Merry holidays to all and to all a goodnight,
