Second chances are hard to come by – except when it comes to Yelp Prom! The Houston Yelp Elite squad donned their best and worst attire for one unforgettable night at The Oak Room, part of H-town's famed Greek eatery, One's A Meal.
Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a Bash Of The Titans photo booth, the savory aromas of spanakopita, tiropita, keftedaki meatballs, meat and cheese platters prepared by One's A Meal, and platters stacked with red velvet cupcakes from CRAVE. For the ladies – and gents – suffering from a bad hair day, the gals from Studio 31 Hair Lab set up shop to provide glamorous hair stylings and makeup makeovers. And yelpers walked away with $25 gift cards to the posh hair boutique. And what's a prom without some adult bevs? Liberty School Winery was on site to keep the School Of Yelp "students" replenished with robust reds and thirst-quenching whites. Soon after, the dance floor quickly packed with party-goers, shakin' and gyrating to the beats of DJ Seduction – and would you believe it that the dance was extended a full hour to keep the party goin'?
Congratulations to this year's reigning Prom King & Queen, Mike W and Gretchen P. Watching them dance to Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" was heartwarming and equally entertaining. And if you didn't stick around for the Yelp-nominated class song – Eddy Grant's "Electric Avenue" – you certainly missed out!
On behalf of the Houston Yelp Elite Squad's Class of 2010, "thank you" to all of our generous sponsors! If you missed the night or want to read up on what everyone is buzzin' about, click here. And don't miss out on the photos either!
