Elite Event: Yelp’s Pack Rats at Sands Regency!


Yelp Elites "donned" their fifties finest mobster attire and assembled at The Copa Grill, inside the Sands Regency, to help celebrate the birthday of the one and only, Don Cardamon. This affair was classic and classy, complete with old fashions and martinis made masterfully by the bartenders, a prime rib buffet even Old Blue Eyes would've enjoyed, and a decadent, rich chocolate birthday cake made to the Don's exacting standards! The Don promised an important announcement that would shape the future for the families, but before he could let it loose from his lips, he was offed by one of his very own guests! But whodunnit? Everyone became a suspect, and several Elites made the lineup, but in the end, all fingers and facts pointed at Mrs. Cardamon! 

After she was carted off in handcuffs, the evening was capped off with conversations and commemorative framed lineup photos taken by Big Spence "The Shooter", and wine bottle shaped wine keys from The Sands that we know will come in handy.

Special thanks goes out to Pete, Tim and the Sands management team for being our hosts, Ms. Erica F and the Sands Marketing Department, who made sure to put all those special touches on the night, Terry and the entire F&B team for taking care of our tastebuds, our ever present and always awesome paparazzi Chris Holloman, and of course, Reno's own Utility Players, the very talented improv troupe that wrote this show especially for the event!
