Around 700 yelpers got together at 1111 Lincoln Street, the home of Stoney's Bar & Grill, on 11/11/11 for Yelpapalooza 3.5 this past Friday night and what a celebration it was! Three local bands took over the stage and kept the place rocking all night starting with Petals of Spain, followed by Take To The Oars, and ending with The Don'ts and Be Carefuls. Plus DJ Savior Breath kicked off the party spinning fun dance tunes before the bands started and in between sets!
There were plenty of drinks flowing including delicious beers from Deschutes Brewery, Oak and Cokes thanks to Bacardi OakHeart Spiced Rum, lemon chiffon cosmos courtesy of Cupcake Vodka, and a variety of wines from E&J Gallo Winery. For thirsts of the non-alcholic variety Dry Soda and vitaminwater were on hand as well. And there was plenty of food to feed the appetizers all this rockin' out caused. Hops and Pie came with delicious pumpkin soup, Las Brisas had a wide assortment of Mexican fare, Stoney's had sliders for sampling, PopChips were available for munching, and Wahoo's was serving chicken teriyaki bowls. Not to be missed either were the desserts from 32 Treat including frozen yogurt and mini cupcakes or the cotton candy be spun by intern extraordinaire Kim I!
Of course, the bands were plenty of entertainment but we couldn't resist throwing some more fun into the mix. Babooshka created amazing updos for attendees, ÜberChic Nail Boutique was on hand with a mini-mani station, Andye Murphy – Rock 'n Roll Shaman – gave glimpses into people's futures, IndyInk designed special screen prints for the night, Artsy Events drew caricatures of yelpers, Denver Photo Booth set up two booths to ham it up in, and SWat Productions captured the evening on film.
With a night so full of good times, the yelpers in Denver had a lot of good will in their hearts and all together we raised $2,000 to our non-profit partner for the evening, Invest in Kids. But, don't take our words for it – read the reviews for highlights and don't forget to check out the Denver Photo Booth photos as well as the ones captured by our very own Phil H. Until 4.0 next year, we'll SYOY (See You On Yelp)!
