Leg warmers. Lionel Richie. Crimped hair. The '80s were rad times, and for one totally bodacious night Yelp Elites and their plus-ones got to blast into the past and celebrate at Pie Hole, Salt Lake's gnarliest pizzeria. They were serving up slices of their thin-crust pies with aweseome flavor combinations like potato-bacon, jalapeno-meatball, and a chicken-bacon-garlic-red pepper-pepper jack pizza called the "Bird Dog."
In between the rounds of pizza, yelpers got to sample the angelic cupcake concoctions from Heaven Cupcake. Memorie Morrison and Caroline Kochniuk were on hand from Landis Lifestyle Salon to give some beautiful '80s hairdos (scrunchees and crimping irons aplenty) and the Ms. PacMan machine was full of quarters and the high scorer of the night won a trophy and unending bragging rights.
Journey, Hall & Oates, Bon Jovi, Duran Duran, and Cyndi Lauper were all in attendance as the DJ pumped out the classics while guests sipped on the decade's great cocktails: Sex on The Beach, Blue Lagoons, and Fuzzy Navels. Mallory Renee Photography was there and documented it all, including the totally tubular threads being worn by guests. The best dressed guy and gal each won a free pizza, a case of TAB, and Lionel Richie's "Dancin' On The Ceiling" on cassette.
After raffling off spectacular prizes like Ghostbusters on VHS and tickets to see Eddie Money, everyone joined together to sing one last song and bid farewell to the greatest decade. The song? Don't Stop Believin'!
Keep partying like it's 1989!
