Yelp Honolulu celebrated Chinese New Year with a roaring Year of the Tiger celebration at KA Restaurant & Lounge! The party got poppin' hotter than a raging string of firecrackers as 150+ guests noshed on yummy Asian inspired appetizers provided by KA. Bacon covered mochi, key lime salmon, chicken skewers with hoisin were just a few of the delicious bites that were passed around the latern adorned room!
"Take a picture, it lasts longer" was the motto of the evening as yelpers took Chinese New Year themed photos with the computer fixing dynamic duo (aka Doc Rock & Topher) from iFix Pro. Easy there grasshopper, for you have much to Yelp about!
Showbiz can be tough and all that modeling can make a yelper thirsty! Phenomenally photogenic guests downed complimentary beers from Blue Moon, Miller Lite and Grolsch, an assortment of wines, and a special pomegranate shochu cocktail made just for the party! Yelpers sampled different treats from the Chinese candy bar and got a glimpse of the future while cracking open fun fortune cookies.
What Yelp Chinese New Year celebration would be complete without a traditional Chinese lion dance? The amazing Gee Yung Lion Dance Troupe clanged and banged their way into KA and delighted guests with a fantastic performance. Yelpers fed their money to the hungry lions in hopes of bringing in lots of good luck for the New Year!
Aloha & SYOY!
