In true LA East Elite fashion, Yelp’s Tinsel Town Holiday party at Libertine was a dancing, drinking, photoboothing festive time. Guests glittered from head to toe in fancy attire and kicked off the evening with an Original Moonshine cocktail hour featuring Fall Haze (Original Moonshine, fresh apple & pear juice, accented with ginger, lemon & clove), Spice the Night (Original Moonshine, fresh lime juice, jalapeno and essence of basil & orange), and Holiday Thyme (Original Moonshine, fresh lime juice, cucumber and thyme) hosted by black LAB ventures. Once upstairs, Elites sampled treats like pumpkin spice cake pops, miniature chocolate peppermint cupcakes, miniature snickerdoodle cookies from The Sweet Chemist.
A slew of sparkly new avatars are now spotted all over Yelp thanks to Project Photobooth. While they were waiting to show off their fierce poses, guests guzzled down Golden Road Brewing Point the Way IPA and Hef, as well as seasonal Pisco Portón cocktails – Portón Sparkler (Pisco Portón, St. Germain, champagne, Ruby Red Grapefruit juice, and club soda) and Portonero (Pisco Portón, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, bitters, and ginger ale). After being loosened up by liquor, the crowd busted out some serious moves thanks to the bangin’ beats provided by Newestra DJs Dances with Wolves. And in between boogying and boozing, Elites found it in the spirit of the season to donate to Eagle Rock Yacht Club, raising over $300 for the non-profit that provides after-school activities for kids in high-risk neighborhoods around LA. Those generous souls were entered into a raffle to win Eagle Rock Yacht Club swag (including a “Don’t be a Dick” flask) and iMainGo portable speaker cases for the iPhone provided by Portable Sound Labs.
