You can't spell the word party without the letter P. So why not host an event to celebrate this all important letter! Encouraged to come dressed as anything beginning with a P, Seattle's Elite yelpers turned up for one heckuva popular event! Peeling through the crowd, it was easy to spot anything from pimps, to pirates, to penguins, pilots, and even a pastrami sandwich!
Known as Seattle's most happenin' happy-hour hangout, sushi spot Japonessa hosted this jam-packed party for 200 lucky local Elite yelpers. The menu for the night featured some of the tastiest treats in town. While sampling the food guests could nab a seat and treat themselves to a mini origami lesson while they ate.
Speaking of eating, guests got their share of fresh nigiri from platters piled high with salmon, tuna, yellowtail and albacore. And for the folks that love a little fusion flair, The Super Bad Boy roll proved to be super good. Also passed around were samples of the always popular El Diablo Roll, Calamari Japonessa, Garlic Short Ribs, and specially made rolls like The Elite Roll and The Yelper Roll!
But what's a party without some sparkeling wine? Segura Viudas brought along cases upon cases of Cava to host their own tasting table complete with a prize wheel. But that's not all! Shiny gold keys were stratigically placed around the venue. Each key represented a fun prize and encouraged guests to venture out, meet new people and see the space all while trying to win big! More prizes for the night included mini gift bags to guests who dressed to impress, and even a complimentary dinner for two to the guest who wore it best. For guests who sidled up to the sushi bar, a specialty Segura Viudas cava cocktail was whipped up to wash it down.
A night as memorable as this would be hard to forget, but thanks to local photographer Chad Pryor we can keep the memory fresh with his gorgeous photos! For copies of prints from the evening please visit Chad's website. More photos of the event can be seen on our Official Yelp Flickr Page.
