Orlando Goes Gloriously Gatsby

Gatsby blog post

Over a thousand of Orlando’s most dapper Yelpers descended upon the Orlando Science Center to celebrate an evening of local food, drinks, entertainers, and makers at Yelp’s Gatsby Affair. Were there flapper dresses and bow ties? Oh yeah. Was there a Gatsby-themed Burlesque show? Mhm! How about an insane amount of local-love being thrown around? You can bet your waxy ‘stache there was! Besides the incredible restaurants showcasing their finest bites, some of Orlando’s best bars whipped up their innovative takes on the classic Old Fashioned using Old Forester Whiskey. Not a dry mouth could be found! And finally, as a new addition to Yelp’s annual bash, Orlando’s makers were out in full force at the #OrlandoMade Marketplace. Locals perused and shopped fine-crafted goods made right here in The City Beautiful, while getting to talk directly to the makers.

This was a Gatsby bash of epic proportions and even more epic was the amount raised at the event for the Orlando Science Center – Over $7,700! Check out what locals are saying about the party, take a peek at photos of the event taken by Jim White Photography, and photo booth pics by Macbeth Photography (with custom backdrop) and Snap Studio Booth.
