DC Elites kicked December off right with their funniest event ever! The yelper jokes were flying and the food and drinks were flowing as around 250 Elites and guests came out to DC's new and fabulous Riot Act Comedy Theater for a night that, in Mimi C's words, was "So. Much. Fun!"
Yelp's A Riot! was off to a delicious start with tons of tempting treats from DC faves Luke's Lobster, Zola, Zola Wine & Kitchen, Potenza, and of course, Red Velvet Cupcakery! Riot Act's boisterous bartenders loosened up yelpers' funny bones with complimentary drinks including Stella, Bud, wine galore, and the artful Aristocrat (Prosecco, VeeV, and sliced strawberries – yes, please!). And when those snack cravings hit, PopChips provided the perfect solution!
Following a festive cocktail hour, guests packed into Riot Act's theater for a private show headlined by celebrity comedian Tammy Pescatelli of Last Comic Standing! Talented Tammy, opener Danny Rouhier and MC Abe Barth all worked in their share of Yelp jokes, and, in the words of Natasha L, "had us rolling!"
Because a taste of Tammy is never enough, she stuck around after the show, charming her fans, new and old, and posing for plenty of photos! Be sure to check them out and many more here, thanks to photographer SeanMartae Williams, and read reviews of the event here!
Cheers and Chuckles,
