Take an impressive antique warehouse, fill it with delicious drinks, scrumptious snacks, decadent desserts, and silent dancing, and what do you get? – A happy crowd. Wednesday was the third night of Yelp’s annual 5-night Holiday Hangover party, held at Big Daddy’s Antiques. Each night’s different theme was reflected in the vendors’ products and attendees’ outfits. I came along as part of the Pacific Catch team and was glad to see a variety of great offerings from local businesses. Companies such as Skyy and Rye on the Road kicked off the night with creative cocktails like “Woo Hoo’s” and sparkling Long Islands. Near our booth was Eat Curbside - with a line that never seemed to shorten. Puccini & Pinetti featured beef carpaccio crostini with horseradish goat cheese and vegetable skewers. Guests were treated to delicate rolled Jewish pastries called Rugelach, provided by Doll’s Kitchen, in two flavors: chocolate-raspberry and apricot-raisin. I was thrilled to indulge in Neo Cocao’s exquisite shell-less truffles in a variety of flavors (the fresh ginger truffle was especially impressive). Polkadotties Cookies delighted the crowd with their macaroons, shortbread, and what was probably the best chocolate chip cookie I’ve encountered. Silent Storm Sound System put a fun twist on the music by providing headphones that played three different music channels: a playlist and two in-house DJs. The highlight of the night was seeing a group of people dancing together in a silent room. And there was no need to fear the fun being forgotten; thanks to Snap Fiesta, you could capture the best moments with their interactive photo booth. They provided wigs, glasses, and other costume props that were well received among the photo booth-goers. Snap Fiesta also set up a pedal that allowed everyone to control the timing of their own shots! It was definitely a hit. From the food to the drinks, the music, the photos, and the endless array of interesting antique items at the venue, Wednesday night’s party was a great time. It reflected Yelp’s passion for connecting local businesses and community. I’m already looking forward to next year’s party.
