Last night, upwards of 150 East Bay Yelp Elites sashayed over to Somar Bar and Lounge for a night of Art + Funk. Situated smack dab in the middle of the city, party-goers dabbled in heavy-handed Maker's Mark elixirs, noshed on piquant pizza slices,
spruced up their wardrobe with fresh screen-printed wears from local
outfit Forthrite Printing, and were caught rippin' and tearin' on the dance floor to the funky sounds of DJ Rigby Jean Shorts.
Somar's talented barkeep, kept elites properly punched with Maker's Mint Juleps, Old Fashioneds, Whiskey Sours, and even a secret concoction called The Walk of Shame. Troy M puts it best: "It wasn't until I was standing around discussing the mysterious origins
of grenadine with Monica, while holding my sweet new Yelp shirt in one
hand and a copper-encased Mint Julep in the other, that I realized this
event was pretty great. When I glanced up to see Ruggy dancing to the
Lady Ga Ga he was bumping, I realized it was not just a great event–it
was a stupid awesome event."
Competing with a 49ers Monday Night Football game is a tall order, but these glowing 5-star reviews prove that there was clearly only one place to party last night in the 510! Don't just read about it, peep the photos too!
In case we missed you this time, don't forget to RSVP for the next big Yelp event, Yelp Helps!
