Yelp Kansas City's crème de la crème put on their fanciest duds for the latest Elite Event, Yelp's Very Fancy Party! Our gracious host Blue Gallery opened up their doors to 80 Yelpers for a night of music, food, and of course art. And with a titilating exhibition of works exploring the nude form, it was a show that was sure to get Yelpers talking! Featuring artists both local and from around North America, Yelpers got up close and personal with, in the words of Reed N, "nudes that ran the gambit of skinny-plump, young-old, black-white, and male-female." That sounds a lot like the Elite Squad to me!
Immediately upon entering the gallery, Yelpers' ears were seduced by the antique pop stylings of Kansas City's own Victor and Penny. Playing vintage instruments with the sound of a roaring 20's garden party, according to Courtney C they "added just the right kind of ambiance to enhance an amazing event."
Of course, what's a party without libations? Not any party WE would want to attend! Thankfully, Kansas City's newest professional still Dark Horse Distillery joined the festivities with bottles of Rider Vodka and Long Shot White Whiskey in hand. Expertly mixed by the distillery's own Damian Garcia, Brandi C declared the vodka mixed with cranberry and pineapple juice her new "summer porch drink, for sure!"
Thanks to all that attended the event, and of couse thanks to all of the sponsors and performers that made it extra special.
Until next time, I'll SYOY (See you on Yelp!)
