Now here's a little story, we've got to tell about the first party of the year that turned out pretty swell! This Tuesday, 150+ elites joined their homies to pay tribute to the 90s hip-hop era with delicious food and drinks at Bliss/reBAR in Downtown Phoenix.
Yelpers dug into their closets only to enter the party as transformations of themselves in the 90s. Once they recognized each other, elites caught up on life while DJ Decipha from 101.5 Jamz spun old school classics. Even if they didn't come in theme, yelpers had the chance to create their own hip-hop style with spray paint and stencils at the t-shirt station. And let's not forget about the latest schwag to hit the streets; the stylish ray bans that were a perfect match for the theme!
While Banding Hendrix performed artistic magic at the live art station, yelpers snacked on Bliss/reBAR specialties including small chicken skewers, BBQ chicken and cheese comfort crisps, grilled cheese, coconut chicken tender bites and a spoonful of pot roast. They washed down the cuisine with specialty drinks from the bar.
The Notorious Y.E.L.P. wasn't complete without a special live performance by Phoenix's very own hip hop rapper, The Bandit, followed by professional dance moves by B-Boys and a B-girl! The yelpers felt the urban vibe with a backdrop of Downtown Phoenix during the perfect evening of 70-degree weather and took plenty of pictures in front of the backdrop created by Banding Hendrix. Before the night ended, winners of the raffle left with gift certificates to Switch, Fez and Bliss/reBAR, tickets to Paso Roble's Grand Tasting and even the backgdrop Banding Hendrix created!
Special shout-ous go to Bliss/reBAR for hosting, Esoterik Images for capturing the night, Banding Hendrix for adding art to the scene, DJ Decipha and The Bandit for their musical frame of mind, the B-Boys and B-Girl dance crew for showing us what dancing really looks like and for all the yelpers who made it!
Peace out homies,
