Last Wednesday, yelpers showed up in droves to help Yelp Denver celebrate their biggest event yet – our 2nd birthday at Mile High Station! (Inclement weather, be damned.) More than 700 yelpers indulged in adult bev's from Cruz Tequila, Rain Vodka, suds from Deschutes Brewery and grape from Barefoot Wine and Bubbly, plus drinky-drinks from Fuze, BOA Energy Drink, and Parsley. DJ Savior Breath (Eryc Eyl) got the party started with big tunes to help everyone get down, and kept it going throughout the evening.
Local bands Bonnie and the Beard, Brothers O'Hair, and hometown favorites The Knew rocked the party all night! And local vendors Tootsies, Salon Foushee and Fanciful Faces Boulder got everybody dressed and tressed up. Colorado Ice Sculptures amazed with a gorgeous Yelp ice sculpture indoors, accompanied by a live demo throughout the evening out on the patio, and Krista Shiner of Shiner Studios showed off her artistic skills on concrete and canvas on the mezzanine. The gift bag room was stuffed with all kinds of goodies, including Lara bars, Qdoba gift certificates, and mags from Colorado Music Buzz. Shouts out to Greater Range DJ and Sound Town for making the night run so smoothly!
Delicious bites were provided by Lovely Confections, Little Man Ice Cream, Bombay Bistro, Denver Pizza Company, Qdoba, Gastro Cart, Denver Biscuit Company, and Biker Jim's Gourmet Hot Dog Stand. A few lucky yelpers won stupendous gifts: a $50 gift certificate to Fogo de Chao, passes to the UMS, and free entry to the CRY America walk in July. Taking photographic evidence of the evening were photobooths hosted by Shutterbooth and John Bosley Photography, with more snappy snaps taken by Adam Russell and Randall Paetzold. Thumbs up to Yellow Cab for providing a taxi stand and cab vouchers for folks who needed rides home.
