My Yelp review:
“smokin on indo(chine), sippin on gin and juice’….uhhhhhh….laid backkk. So i have been to the Indo beside Burrito Gallery and i’m not really a fan. (do try the coconut creme brulee) I decided to do it for the Yelp, people were gna be dressed up, and if ever a Yelp event, thou shall not miss! I cashed in my free drank ticket and went for the Blood Orange Margarita! It was delish and Jimmy P. hopped on the bandwagon and got it too. I seriously went to every halloween shop trying to find an awesome costume. I desperately wanted this ninja turtle costume but it didn’t fit! I settled for some vampire fangs but they didn’t work out. I should of got the buzz lightyear costume…..next time im going all out and getting my costume early. I decided to go with the $10 Chicken and Beef Pho. It was as good as it gets in comparison to the infamous Bowl of Pho and my favorite Pho Today by Tinseltown. I like the presentation of sauces and the plating of everything. I was snacking on steamed dumplings, crab rangoons, and the chicken satay with Mark B. I loved the coconut curry sauce that came with the chicken and I was tossing dumplings like popcorn. Mark B. also ordered the Whole Red Snapper. That thang was massive they brought it out on a “stretcher” and we attacked it like hyenas! I loved the table side presentation, I got it on video too. Thank you Mark for sharing all your food I was stuffed. Allie made lil bags of candy! I ended up sneaking them into the movies to watch Bad Grandpa hahah it was perfecto. I always wanted to try Sweet Pete’s taffy and it was scrumptious! Grape taffy hit the spot and there was also a $4 gift card in the bag…thats what im talkin bout! Zorro was the best costume to me, he was into it and had the voice to match! Allie really got into it and was playing the guitar on her knees hahah I have pictures! I finally got to meet Anne Marie…all i remember is looking at her profile and saying lawd shes cute! We weren’t friends on Yelp but now we are! Hope to see you at the next Elite event!
Yay! I’m a fan. Good job Allie!
I have always wanted to be the official photographer for an event. My Yelp community manager asked me if I would do it for some VIP event tickets and I said hell yea! Enjoy the +100 pictures!
3 milks! Always good times with good people with good food at these elite events. It sure filled up fast. There wasn’t enough seating but it made you be more social cause you were bumping into tons of yelpers or people serving you food. I’m walking around like oh hey, oh noms….don’t mind if i do, oooh desserts, ooooh sangria, oh hey, did you say Mimosa? Can I have a half Sangria/half Mimosa? Sangrosa? Do you want to take a picture?
Let’s talk about the purple power as Tess B. calls it. That’s what i’m talking bout! Mark B. came out of nowhere with the purple dress/skirt number, Tess B. was rocking the purple dress with the bad ass back tattoo to match, Ruby A. was representin, my plus 1′s was rockin the purp, Anthony H. came in his Baltimore Ravens purp, Dewayne R. had the purple express wipe me down fit, Allie had the purple toes, Juile well uhh ya it was your idea, I forgot the other guys name but he had a purple shirt too, he thought it was just a coincidence that we were all wearing purple. He said sunday best=purple hahah. We forgot to take a group Purple picture =( and also a jumping one =(
I really liked the Mimosa, I can drink a gallon uh that. The Waldorf Chicken Salad was pretty scrumptious, my plus 1′s loved the grapes. I liked that lil quiche with leeks in it, nice lil healthy snack. The plantain chorizo quiche I only had one bite, I need to eat another one to talk about it lol. My favorite was the black and white meringue cookie! Man i fux with that! All i remember is saying to my group damn this is good and Carolanne had the whole cookie stuffed in her mouth like uhh yup! hahah it had a nice crunch on the outside, looked defkinlicious, and it was super fluffy on the inside. I could use a bag of those at the movie theater. The flan tasted good but the texture was like brains, i think its cause it was a rice pudding? I prefer a smooth textured flan. I like that were a lot of raffles. I won some Yelp Elite socks! Yesssss! I really wanted that catering deal, your lucky Mark B. and whoever else got it!
That waitress with the cool hair was awesome her name was Shay, one of my plus 1′s was swooning lol but we wont say any names. I had no idea Tres Leches was right there, I think they got new signage. I want to go to that Paella Party soon and try some of those cakes. In the end, it was a jolly good time. If your not Elite, I don’t know wtf your doing with your life.
