It happens every year. New Yorkers go into gental hibernation during the winter months and as the first warm days of Spring arrive, everyone begins to blossom and don inappropriately skimpy clothes in hopes that they won't be shivering on the walk home. Shiver we did though as April showers hit the SoHo streets last night. Up on the second floor of an inconspicuous loft on the cobblestones of Greene Street, however, the season was in full party mode at Enter Pronoun Studios.
A few hundred yelpers came out to freshen up with us during Yelp Drinks week. Kicking things off with refreshing Spring cheeks and lips, resident makeup artist Natalia made over the ladies of Yelp — and a few gentleman, too! Rosy cheeked and coral lipped, guests posed and preened for on the fashionable photo shoot stage.
Keeping things light as temps heat up (please, please heat up!) this Spring, Voli Lyte Vodkas were on hand serving up low cal, boozy Pink lemonades and for the tougher tipplers, on the rocks. Those low cal options combined with the booty shakin' beats of their resident DJ Heather M and yelpers were sure to "stay sexy" all night long!
After freshening up with those icey bevvies, Elites were spotted sipping Crispin Hard Ciders from flutes. Random fact: Crispin is naturally fermented in the USA using fresh pressed apple-juice, not from apple juice concentrate, from a premium blend of US West Coast apples, with no added malt, grape wine or spirit alcohol. They are gluten-free and delicious!
It would not be a Yelp Elite Event without heaps of eats and Qdoba served up a mean set of street tacos to the hungry hotties in the crowd. Whether it was carne asada or carnitas that heated yelpers up, Richard D assures us of their authenticity: "Those tacos were legit — I had similar ones behind a bus station in Cancun at taco stand." Now that's the real thing!
Color us happy!
