Yelp Cleveland Elites and their +3's truly felt the funk on Thursday evening when they Hopped On Board Yelp's Soul Train. Packed with enough afros, bell bottoms and disco balls to make any Soul Train aficionado boogie down, this par-tay paid homage to the our favorite moments of the 1970's. This righteous bash was hosted by Kevin's Martini Bar at Pickwick & Frolic, home of the trippiest bar in C-Town! Can you dig it?
Our far out hosts served up delicious cocktails all night with Three Olives Vodkas (3-O Dude on the rocks and mini dirty martinis) and a generous spread of tasty bites, including fire breads, several dipping sauces, and lots of veggies. And of course, the Magic Hat kept it real all night with gracious pours of hoppy goodness!
The evening grooved on with the soulful tunes of the 70's, spun by Cleveland's own DJ Ginger Blast and Elites boogied down in their most inspired attire." Proclaimed Jeff B, "Great people, great music, and great dancing—I will have to go back there!" Jenny from The Cleveland Photobooth snapped our glamorous pictures all night with lots of funky props, like Farrah wigs, afros, groovy glasses and more! As Kaitlin D put it, "My friends and I had fun dressing up and even more fun with the photos!"
Yelpers with the best costumes won prizes including the complete first season of Soul Train, a pass to the Cleveland Indians Social Media Suite, a Magic 8 Ball and plenty of tickets to Hilarities 4th Street Theater so they can enjoy some laughs with friends! And let's not forget the truck loads of Yelp schwag and disco balls!
A huge thanks to all the funktified Elites who came out to this Soul Train event. And the thank yous don't end there… DJ Ginger Blast, Jenny from The Cleveland Photobooth, Magic Hat & North American Breweries, Three Olives Vodka and the gracious folks from Pickwick for hosting our awesome event.
