To help kickoff off Hot On Yelp Week, more than 300 yelpers
flocked to the magnificent La Colombe d’Or Hotel, Restaurant & Art Gallery
for the official Hot On Yelp Launch Party. It was a sexy, chic and exquisite evening where guests
reveled in absolute indulgence. Donning their sharpest summer attire, partygoers were
greeted with a summery bev upon arrival, a tour of the historic hotel and as an
added treat, access to the art gallery housed atop the mansion’s third level.
After a little mixing and mingling, the crowd strolled onto the Grand Salon
where the official festivities were in full effect.
The newly revamped restaurant La Colombe d’Or provided an assortment of delectable bites –
Crawfish Remoulade in Phyllo, Smoked Salmon Rosette and imported cheeses to
name a few – as Sprinkles Cupcakes and Ruggles Café Bakery satisfied everyone’s
sweet tooth. And to help wash down the assortment of extravagant bites, crisp,
cold bottles of Widmer Brewing Brothers and concoctions from Texas’ very own
Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka wet the whistles of a very
thirsty crowd. The Grand Salon also featured a packed dance floor where the
beats of DJ Seduction enticed swarms of hip shakers, along with a photo station

But the VIP treatments didn’t stop there! Over in the
Conservatory, yelpers indulged in mini-spa sessions provided by a handful of
Hot On yelp participating spas: chair massages by Kavana Healing Arts Spa and
The Petite Retreat, one-minute manicures by Nail Mogul, hand massages by Dharma
Skin Spa, spray tan samples by Sun Kissed Glo and hair and makeup makeovers by
Studio 31 Hair Lab. Let’s not forget about the endless prizes: $25 gift cards
to Moss that the first 100 attendees walked away with, the $100 Moss gift card for
one lucky yelper, and party for 6 gift packaged from Sun Kissed Glo. Talk about
Special thank you to all of the generous sponsors, the
welcoming team at La Colombe d’Or, the Hot On Yelp participating spas, Jessica
T and Krys T (lovely CMs from San Francisco and San Antonio who helped out in a
may-ja way), and all the yelpers who came out ready to turn up the heat!
