Even the first serious snowfall of the year couldn't keep almost 1,000 Denver yelpers from descending on Casselman's Bar & Venue and The Matchbox to celebrate Yelpapalooza 3.0. Guests of the event were able to travel back and forth between the two venues to enjoy either live bands or a DJ lounge (set up by Greater Range DJ), a wide variety of food, and delicious drinks.
The evening saw rawkin' performance from four local bands – B. Sue, Sweet Corn, In the Whale, and Places on the stage of Casselman's. Plus over at The Matchbox, DJs the Postman and Vonkemp spun music all night long keeping the dance floor packed. Local beers from Left Hand Brewing Company and Odell Brewing Company, spirits from 303 Vodka and Rob's Mountain Gin, and vitaminwater kept folks hydrated throughout the night. Meanwhile nibbles from Happy Cakes, Biker Jim's, Vinh Xuong Bakery, Rubio's, PopChips!, Jerry's Nut House, Cheesesteak Connection, Highland Tap & Burger, Japoix, and Eden Restaurant kept people fueled for fun.
As if that wasn't enough fun Andye Murphy, David Waldas, and Simple Spirit were on hand to give yelpers a glimpse into their futures with psychic readings. Denver Craft Ninjas set up a booth area to create mustaches and bow ties for people to use in the photo booths. Frequent Flyers Production brought two dancers in for aerial fabric performances between band sets. Artsy Events created caricatures to commemorate the night. And Rebelle by Tootsies Salon created rock 'n roll hair stylings for ladies, Tootsies the Nail Shoppe gave mini manis, and Proper Barbershop performed clean-ups for the fellas.
Make sure you check out the Shutterbooth photos, the Wi Cam photos, and the other photos taken by StudioSister Photography and fellow yelper Phil H that night. And read over the reviews to catch glimpses of the highlights.
Thanks to all of those that made it out. We're looking forward to seeing you at the next one, but until then we'll SYOY (See You On Yelp)!
