The Edmonton Elite Squad received a very special treat from the folks at Maggie Walt Boutique on Jasper Avenue. Not only did we celebrate in style with an Arabian Nights Elite Event, but the evening began with a very special, private pre-party shopping hour!
After the Yelp-tastic shopping spree, the party really got started! It wasn't long before a line-up formed for the exquisite designs by local henna artist Nitasha Merchant. By the end of the night, our Edmonton Elites were collectively covered from head to toe in henna! And two rounds of belly dancing got our Edmonton Elites in the party mood. Bedouin Beats showed off a series of routines that included special surprises like scarves and even swords!
The Arabian Nights-tini, featuring mango vodka and spiced rum, lit up the room. And if that wasn't enough to keep everyone busy, Yelp Elite Bingo (or Yelp-O, as we like to call it) made its grand debut to rave reviews. It was a race against time for some great prizes as our Elite Yelpers collected signatures from fellow Yelpers who had checked into the event on their smart phone (and received the fabulous check-in offer featuring a psychic prediction as a result!), written a Yelp review in another country, and received more than five Dukedoms!
Don't forget to check out photos from the event by Karen Lee and check out the fabulous reviews! Says Jacqueline S, "The dancers were awesome and the work the henna artist was doing looked amazing! Between the space and the entertainment, it felt way more exotic than a Jasper ave basement!"
Until next time, Yelpers!
