What do you get when you mix LA yelpers with more than 1500 pieces of Belgian chocolate, jumbo cupcakes, homemade Ding Dongs, cake truffles, cookies, brownies and more? Yelp LA's Sweet September party!
Last weekend we brought yelpers' dreams to life with a grown-up dessert playground courtesy of Essential Chocolate Desserts and Kitchen 12000 at the LA Meeting & Event Center. Think you're too old to spend an afternoon going wild in a candy shop? Well,
Stepping inside, special Yelp Security set the stage and since a yelper can't live on sweetmeats alone, there were plenty of other treats, like tricks from the Magic Castle's Marc Bachrach and palm readings with Spencer. DJ Armando set the mood along with the floral stylings of Floral Fields while we were spoiled rotten with savory bites from Kitchen12000 served by psychedelic candyland servers, washing it all down with candy laden vodka concoctions like Red Vine Lemonade, and, what no sweet tooth could be without, a Milk Bar.
Before calling it a day, Elites grabbed their Yelp lunchboxes and goody bags and a few lucky revelers went home with raffle prizes from the Pure Delish Candy Shoppe, a cookie basket from Sabrina's Sweetery, eyebrow shaping from Queen Bee Waxing, and a night at the historic Culver Hotel, snagged by new Elite, Pat K.
Until next time…
