On Wednesday, nearly 150 Phoenix yelp elite stars walked the red carpet into an burlesque-filed evening at MyxMedia/Nielsen Galleries in Sunnyslope, Arizona. While burlesque dancers hung from the rafters, elites enjoyed an evening at the most artistic event venue in town!
During the Urban Boheme Mix & Match, yelpers tried a little of everything in the cuisine department. Guests began the night with the calorie-friendly PopChips and then moved on to the Wildflower Bread Company's mouthwatering butternut squash raviolis, turkey cranberry walnut stuffing sandwiches, raspberry ricotta buttermilk tarts and fiery butternut squash salad in martini glasses. And if that wasn't enough, each guest left with a loaf of the yet to be released sweet potato chive bread. In the dessert department, yelpers treated their sweet tooth to gourmet pop corn from Poppa Maize and delectable cupcakes from Butter & Me.
All the eating and socializing made these urban yelpers thirsty so luckily Tito's Vodka, Leblon Rum and Cruz Tequila were on hand to pass out tasty cocktails – including a blood orange margarita – to the parched. And dehydration wasn't an issue since the very refreshing "ultra premium" RedLeaf water also made an appearance from Canada for the evening!
Complimentary valet and a paparazzi red carpet entrance greeted the guests. And while they munched on the tasty eats and delicious drinks, yelpers enjoyed mood-setting music from the DJ, watched a sketch artist work his magic with a live model and browsed the venue's collection of art and sculptures. And for the show stopping finale, a burlesque dancer captivated the crowd by performing a mouth dropping acrobatic display on rings hanging from the ceiling beams!
A special thank you to Myxmedia.org, Nielsen Galleries, Wildflower Bread Company, Poppa Maize, PopChips, Butter & Me Cupcakes, RedLeaf Water, Tito's Handmade Vodka, Leblon Rum, Cruz Tequila and Scandalesque entertainment for making it a night on the town to remember!
See you elite stars at the next one!
