When Charlotte Elites became privy to the Celebrity Cliche Charade Yelp Event, they immediately conjured some of the most creative and hysterical get ups this town has ever seen. What came to be only weeks later was an evening full of controlled mayhem that only a celebrity cliche could appreciate!
Elites were treated to one of the most beautiful views in all of Charlotte at Loft 1523! The shine of the city lights certainly illuminated the fabulous and highly creative costumes inside. Thanks to the talented DJ, Elites got down to a myriad of tunes ranging from Michael Jackson to Christina Aguliera. And every cliche was represented, from the Annie W's "hot mess" to Jared Y's "Brad Pitt between films. Plus, Melissa B was ready to rumble and take down some misbeheavin' celebrities as the token policewoman of the evening.
Elites snacked on delicious wraps and pub goodies from Mortimer's Cafe & Pub while washing it down with a bevy of beverage options. New Belgium poured to the Elites' content with bottles full of fantatic Fat Tire, Ranger and 1554 Black Ale. And for the grape seekers, Palm Bay International offered incredible Chilean carmenere and chardonnay from Montgras.
As the party came to a close, the best celebrity cliche incarnations were coronated. The big winners of the night included Pourina R, as half of the famed Cheech & Chong duo, and Melissa B for her dedication to serving the letter of the law!
