Gee, Richie Cunningham and Lucille Ball would have been proud! Last night, Vancouver Yelp Elites and their guests twisted and shook on back to the 1950s at the Wallflower Modern Diner with Jell-O, the Dirty Dancing Soundtrack, bouffants and all.
Jell-O shooter recipes were submitted by yelpers with Megan S, Katie F, Raymond O, Barry M and Anita K’s chosen for the evening’s slurping. With creative ingredients thrown in like Raymond O’s green tea and Katie F’s “I Like Strawberries,” it’s no wonder why they were the bomb! Prior to the party, these lucky yelpers had their hair teased, sprayed and set into bouffants and curls for the ladies, and greased and slicked back for the gents by the talented East Vanity Parlour.
Between shots, guests sipped on Malibu Rum cocktails reminiscent of a 1950’s dinner party. (Sounded like the Malibu Iced Tea was a fave.) Mixed and mingled with these tasty creations, The Wallflower lived up to its Modern Diner name, serving up meatloaf, hamburger sliders and… oh my, are those veggie corn dogs?
But wait there’s more! While we nibbled and downed Jell-O, our panel of illustrious judges deliberated on whose recipe was the liveliest, tastiest, best-est! And it was none other than Megan S, wearing a saucy apron, who took home the cake, errr, Malibu Prize Bag and tickets to MusicFest. Raymond O collected a Jell-O mold pack and Barry M scored tickets to Luv-A-Fair at Venue. Very special thanks to Miss 604, Rebecca Bollwitt, Christy and Sophie from East Vanity Parlour, and The Diamond‘s, Sophie Taverner for their brilliant judging!
The End…until next time,
