The art-filled event was buzzing with artists and art-appreciators alike. The old library turned arts center provided an antiquated backdrop to an intimate Sunday afternoon spent mingling, sipping and nibbling in a sea of stylish black and white digs.
Bubbly and wine were flowing compliments of Barefoot Wine & Bubbly and bottles of Deschutes Brewery's Mirror Pond and Black Butte made another generous LA appearance. As always, making sure our nondrinkers and DDs were kept thirst-quenched, the non-alcoholic beverage of choice on this fine Sunday was none other than the king of sparkling juices, Izze. And whom did we have to serve all these delicious drinks? None other than the yummiest of bartender (merci Keith) from Yummy Bartenders!
It wouldn't be a Yelp event without scrumptious samplings from favorite local spots, so Stonefire Grill in neighboring Pasadena provided exquisite BBQ tri tip, addictive garlic bread sticks, and their signature BBQ chopped salad. Cupcakes from Lark Silver Lake Cake Shop were a hot commodity, as guests treated the limited selection of desserts as if they were pure gold! They looked brilliant and matched the theme beautifully.
Elites and their plus ones did not go home empty handed either! Caricatures by Grant exaggerated facial expressions and characteristics with his wit and his pen, Party Fun Creation gussied up eager epidermises with beautiful henna creations and Jonathan Kvassay rendered unique portraits worthy of professional framing. Dazzling ears with soothing sounds was Yelp's own Brandon T and a couple other talented members from The Haberdashery Ensemble. And without the lovely Corza M we would be without these perfect pictures.
Do you think the good times stopped there? Never. The official after party took place at The Black Boar for deals on domestic drafts, well drinks and a special Yelp burst shot. Elites just can't get enough!
Even though it was a black and white event, the colorful reviews can be found right here.
Another weekend, another Yelp Elite event!
