Wondrous marvels and fantastical feats were on display at Grand Central this week as over 120 brave Elites stepped right up to enter Yelp's Carnival Fun-House! First-timer Jess Y said it best: "Yelp DC's got it going on!"
Theresa D "wasn't sure what to expect with the carnival theme, but the night had all the carnival fun and thankfully none of the creepy clowns. Jared Rydelek's amazing contortions were freaky enough!" Jenny T had an educational takeaway: "I now believe that it is possible to put a screwdriver in my nostril and a sword down my throat….Still never gonna try it." Aw, c'mon, Jenny!
Screwdrivers, swords and delightfully disturbing bodily manipulations weren't the only surprising sights this Tuesday. Danny V thought "Madame Mims was esoterically awesome," and he was "razzle-dazzled" by "Josh Norris, the handsome and charismatic magician" who "performed magic within arm's length – no tricks revealed!" The night made quite an impact: "Gosh, I lost my elite event virginity and I'm, like, a total whorebag now."
Steve L was thrilled to be "able to try the local brew courtesy of DC Brau," and Toya G grooved on the "sweet and fruity" Stoli cocktails featuring white pomegranik and wild cherri vodka. Luckily for Nicole L and her fellow imbibing Elites, "the awesome Grand Central was a great host, serving yelpers generously with all kinds of tasty food (wings, chicken strips, hummus, shrimp poppers)!"
Thanks to all the Elites for coming out and getting down, and to photographer Jeff Martin for capturing it all on camera! Be sure to check out Yelp's flickr page for the complete spread of photos, and read all the full reviews on the event page!
Until next time, keep those screwdrivers outta your nose (or don't)!
