La Dolce Vita translates to “the good life.” Yelpers translate directly to “professional party goers.” Yelp doing La Dolce Vita? Goes something a little like this…
On 5/21/08, a warm, wistful Wednesday evening, the Yelp elite squad descended upon Il Covo Ristorante Italiano and Sopra Lounge in the beautiful Bucktown neighborhood. The windows opened onto bustling Damen Avenue allowing a slight breeze, Italian vespas courtesy of Motoworks graced the entrance, and an evening of free flowing libations, beautifully executed appetizers, pastas and desserts, lively conversation and classic style spanned two levels. Ah, the good life…
To add to the evening’s splendor, we had two very special birthdays in the house! Vamsi V and John C were both toasted, and toasted some more as the evening progressed. Matt L and Jenn H danced to the beat of their own drum (meaning, there was no dance floor, or…DJ) and had a helluva time breakin’ it down for the crowd. Justin V was just glad it was finally Wednesday, as he showed up the night before for the party…just couldn’t wait for your first elite party, right JV?
Many thanks to Carol J, yelper and managing partner of Il Covo, and her fantastic staff (D’s the man!) for being the hostess with the mostess and to Victoria S of Sprung Photo for capturing all the suave and sassy yelpers in their finest hour with classic black and white photos! Phil ‘n Phlash Public Eye provided the glitzy papparazzi photo installation, and a special shout out to Beth P for being a rockstar hoodie manager! Also many kudos to Moonshine, Skewerz, The Alley and Taboo Tabou for providing raffle gift items to sweeten the deal.
La Dolce Vita, yelpers…living the good life, always.
Until next time…SYOY!
