Dallas Yelp’s Tacky Elite Prom

What do you get when you throw Yelp all over the walls, put on some shoulder pads and spike the punch? A Yelp Prom, of course! Dallas Elites and guests gussied up in their best formal attire for Dallas Yelp Prom at Third Space, located in the heart of downtown.

We saw everything from side pony tails to elbow-length gloves to silk ties at this R-rated party. A cheesy photo booth complete with shooting stars and a castle and silver fringe backdrop provided perfect prom pictures that everyone can take home to mom and dad. When they weren't getting their pics taken, yelpers were gettin' groovy to the beats of DJ yeahdef, who spun old school hits all night long.

Thanks to the generous offerings from Snappy Salads, Pinkberry and The Taco Joint, guests did not go hungry. In fact, there was so much grub they were sending Elites home with doggie bags full of yummy goodies! Among the choices were Thai lettuce boats, cups of mushroom soup, steak wraps, 5 frozen yogurt flavors with toppings, chips and queso… just to name a few!

Remember that spiked punch we mentioned? Hudson Ferus Vodka provided made-to-order juice cocktails, Cruz Tequila slung fresh-mixed mint margaritas and Deschutes Brewery supplied a keg of their Mirror Pond Pale Ale to keep the yelpers and their prom dates hydrated. No hidden flasks needed at this prom!
