Yelpers donned their most spectacular holiday duds for the final bash of San Antonio's inaugural year at Olmos Perk! The intimate space wowed yelpers as it was transformed into a red and white winter yelperland, thanks to custom-made centerpieces designed exclusively for the event by the very talented local artist, Laurie Byno!
According to Jeffrey H, "delectable edibles, lively libations, and yelptastic swag" filled the space thanks to our incredible sponsors, Kate's Frosting (*the* place to go for San Antonio's tastiest cupcakes), Koonunga Hill Winery, and Bud Light! San Antonio Elites found the greatest compliment to complimentary drinks is an unending supply of cupcakes, cookies, and incredible appetizers to fill their tummies with holiday cheer!
Yelpers competed in a best costume contest and it came down to a near tie, with Breanne "Bow head girl" S and "The Sweater Crew" neck in neck! Prizes awarded were custom-made Yelp picture frames created (again) by our own local artist, Laurie Byno. We bet the photos from our incredible photographer, Carlos Pena will be first on display!
Perhaps the highlight of the night was when Santa Claus showed up to appease his yelpes with the gift of laughter and posing for pics in the photo booth (which were autotweeted throughout the night from @digibooth)!
It's been a great year, yelpers. As we all agreed in our champagne toast, here's to making 2011 the most yelptacular year we could ever imagine! If you missed out on the fun, peep the reviews and pics to see why you *need* to be Elite 2011!
Until next time,
