Over 100 Dallas Elites and guests danced, shook, shimmied, sipped and ate at Yelp Arabian Nights, hosted by Kismet and Cafe Izmir. Kismet opened their doors and turned up their sound system while the DJ spun modern dance mixes mixed with Middle Eastern dance flair.
Not only was the DJ moving at the speed of lightning, so were the bartenders who served up fabulous Absolut Citron lemon drops, frozen margaritas and draft beer. Yelpers were also treated with a buffet fit for kings, full of piping hot and deliciously cold Middle Eastern tapas and treats including cheese plates, hummus with pita bread, Eegra, Russian chicken salad, chicken and lamb kabobs, grilled veggies, baklava and much more!
Then the belly dancers from Authentic Belly Dancing Entertainment moved in and everyone created a space for them to whirl around the room using swords, shimmering cloths and sexy moves that wowed the crowd. They even balanced a lit plate of candles on their foreheads while bent over backwards, and showed a few brave yelpers how to flip a quarter on their stomach with no hands!
Those looking for more low-key entertainment got in line for the mysterious palm reader, who apparently chilled some yelpers down to their bones with her spot-on readings. Other Elites and guests simply chilled out on one of the many plush couches and smoked away on hookahs, filled with flavors like strawberry and peach.
Izmir Group also gave an "All Day Affair" prize package away to one lucky winner which included gift cards to all three of their establishments, and Janna from Live Hair Group was also in attendance to give two lucky yelpers gift cards redeemable for hair cuts.
