16 May Yelp’s Pant-less Prom
Each year, every high school boy and girl enjoys (or dreads) the time-honored tradition of prom, but no one imagines going to their prom pants-less. Unless, you’re a San Diego Yelper and attended the Pants-Less Prom party at La Jolla Cove Suites on April 24 for Yelp’s elite and many of the guests were in states of tasteful undress.
Guests arrived at “La Jolla Cove Suites High” for an evening of delectable treats and beverages as well as various activities atop the best rooftop terrace venue in all of La Jolla, La Jolla Cove Suites. The event also a going away party for the San Diego Yelp community manager, Danny, guests enjoyed a hosted bar as well as some amazing appetizers provided by The Abbey Catering. With a spiked punch drink in hand, guests sampled and raved about our Italian-style ahi poke on crispy wontons, Polynesian chicken salad atop a toasted baguette, gazpacho with watermelon ball shooters, coconut-crusted golden shrimp with a sweet Thai chili sauce, and homemade hummus and pita.
Since the theme of the evening was “pants-less,” attendees came dressed and undressed in all sorts of outfits, from a mic-holding Tom Cruise (think “Risky Business”) to ladies in full ball gowns, ruffles and all. The anticipation of this party was so immense, word had spread up to the coast, and a contingent from Los Angeles was in attendance (one of which never went to their own prom). To help stay warm in the cool evening breeze, guests shook their tail feathers on the dance floor or partook in the Abbey Catering’s fake-ID photo shoot. Votes were also taken for a pant-less prom king and queen and winners were crowned at the end of the evening.
