Come Pley With Yelp @ The Children’s Museum of Houston

The Children's Museum of Houston's new exhibit –
"Summer of Epic Adventure" – set the backdrop for Houston's biggest event of the summer: Come Pley With Yelp!



Local Houston yelpers suited up in their best
superhero (and villain) ensembles to explore the grounds and the evening's many food, beverage,
entertainment stations. …In the name of charity, of course,
raising $4,400 for the CMH!

Completely transformed, thanks sound and lighting sponsor
Pro Sound, colorful illumination hues, flashing lights and bumpin’ beats filled
the halls, as DJ Seduction took over the ones and twos. From all the dancing
and exploring, there was an array of refreshing adult beverages to wet
: Blue Moon's new Vintage Ale Collection, Crispin Cider, Deep Eddy Ruby Red
, Deep Eddy Straight Vodka, Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka, Saint Arnold
Brewing Company
. For our designated
drivers, Honest Tea, Monster Energy and Java Pura Coffee Roasters helped to
rehydrated and energize!

There to nourish guests’ superhero strength, some of
Houston's best eateries provided a delicious spread of bites – from savory to
sweet: jalapeno sausage and brisket from The Brisket House; cocktail meatballs,
pasta and sauces from Brooklyn Meatball Co.; crawfish and gumbo from The Cajun
; tres leches cake, spinach dip and hummus from The Chelsea Grill; tequila-infused
mini margarita cupcakes from CRAVE Cupcakes; fruit and nut granola bars from KIND
Healthy Snacks
; beef pho, bun bo hue (spicy noodle soup), spring rolls, tofu
and bok choy, and beef Jap chae from Kim Chau Restaurant; soy sauce packets Little
; beef and chicken tamales from Listos Restaurant & Catering; various
pizzas, wings and gelato from Luigi's Pizzeria; tootsie maki rolls from RA
; s’more donuts, donut holes and rum-spiked smoothies from Shipley Do-Nuts 12225 Westheimer. And
with all the food and drinks, Houston local Nexus Disposal made it easy for
cleanup and recycling.

For added entertainment and prizes, there were multiple superhero
spa stations
: giveaways from amerejuve MedSpa’s wheel of spa prizes; mini manis
and nail designs by Nail Mogul; face and body paintings from Rawr Party!; and hair
makeovers and hair chalking from White Salon & Skincare Center.
