Even though August is all about back-to-school and the stores are
already previewing fall fashions, there's nothing wrong with squeezing that last little bit out of summer while there's still time! And anyone who's been to St. Louis knows that it's hot, humid and sticky here right now, so what better way to cool down than to have a BBQ and pool party?!
Mansion House Apartments hosted Yelp STL's Endless Summer Party on their rooftop deck, with a beautiful pool and amazing views of the downtown. You're so close to the Arch that feels like you could reach out and touch it!
Pappy's Smokehouse served up their famous ribs, Blues City Deli provided sandwich trays and there was a salsa competition between Elites. Local "celebrities" Adam "Pablo" Tilford, Scott Roberts and Stef Pollack were our guest judges for the evening. The grand prize salsa winner received a night's stay at the Millennium Hotel St. Louis. And Gelateria Tavolini delivered gelato in cups for everyone to cool down their mouths after tasting all of that spicy goodness! And of course it's not a Yelp party without drinks, so there were refreshing Firefly Peach Sweet Tea Vodka cocktails as well as a kiddy pool full of Fat Tire and VitaminWater.
But by far, the best part of the night was when Elites and their guests bared all and jumped into the pool! Those brave souls were rewarded with cool water and a game of beach dodgeball.
The event went so swimmingly that it's gotten a perfect 5-star rating so far. Don't believe it? Read the reviews here! Our fave so far is John D's:
"In the future, people from St. Louis will ask
each other where they were on August 9, 2010, and when people say they
were ANYWHERE other than at the Yelp rooftop pool party, we shall only
be able to shake our heads and look upon them with pity because they
missed out on the greatest Monday night of all time."
Stay cool and enjoy the rest of your summer!
