Bay Area Elites ventured deep into the East Bay to Danville’s Easy 925 for a full reeeeewind back to the 1980s! Recall those days when legwarmers and parachute pants reigned supreme? Well, yelpers donned their throwback finest to honor the era, and Wang Chunged all night long fueled by lip-smackingly good SKYY Infusion concoctions created especially for the event by 925’s choice mixologists!
The party started even before the YelpBus arrived at the lounge; Chris G eased into his first Elite event
sipping Firestone Beer on the ride from the BART. Walking through the door, guests received around-the-world punch cards to taste all flavors in the SKYY rainbow. “Purple Rain” put a smile on Gwen H‘s face while Madonna was spotted sipping the hit of the night, “Pretty in Pink,” which will be featured as Yelp’s own cocktail on the new drink list!
Andrew T‘s mad dash from the SF event paid off as he snagged a raffle prize to return with friends for the signature cocktail. It was Amanda M who carried away an enviable basket of SKYY goodies though! And Ieesha M scored a gift certificate to Singaporean restaurant, Kopitiam, in Lafayette that provided tasty nibbles. Not bad for her first Elite event. Luckily all the stories are documented here!
Shout outs to the folks at Easy 925 for encouraging our antics with a smile and a cocktail, all the totally
tubular Community Managers that joined in for the festivities from far and wide, and of course, the awesome yelpers who really got in the groove!
Three cheers for tipsy Tuesdays!
