With a few slurps of raw oyster and a few gulps of the delicious cocktails made with a little love and whole lot of 42 Below Vodka, the DC Yelp Elite Squad's hips were not lying last night at Yelp Gets Meze-morized.
The Elite Squad ran wild last night as they explored all four floors of this amazing venue located in the cultural melting pot that is U Street. Throughout the evening, DC yelpers slurped away over 500 raw oysters, chowed down on hummus, curry crab puffs and spinach with feta pastries, threw back a handful (or two) of Passionfruit Cosmos and danced along with enchanting belly dancer, Samira Shuruk. Luckily, no yelpers attempted to balance the sword on their head. *Wipes sweat off brow*
When it was time to take a breather from all of the dancing, hugging, arm wrestling and stair climbing, you could find yelpers in the dim lit, candle filled, lounge full of pillows downstairs, on the second floor in the art room adorned full of beautiful and funky pieces from local artists, or on the top floor enjoying the skyline views of the Washington Monument and the Capitol through the glass enclosed rooftop.
Once again, a buxom thank you to Tabaq Bistro for hosting us in their gorgeous space and for the patience and grace of their amazing staff. Also, a helluva thank you is in order to 42 Below Vodka for filling the event with…spirit!
Until next time folks, SYOY!
