Yelp Prism Party this Thursday!
Filed Under Downtown Birmingham
Join us for a night of FOOD, DRINKS, MUSIC, and GOOD TIMES for this year’s big Yelp Event… The Yelp Prism Party. This year we will be under the colorful lights of the 18th Street Birmingham Lights Tunnel for a great tasting of amazing food and drinks with a whole lot of visually appealing fun!
This is a private event – you must RSVP and get a confirmation to attend. THERE ARE NO +1 FOR THIS EVENT. EVERYONE MUST RSVP SEPARATELY.
We encourage everyone to wear a white outfit (no, this isn’t a white party) and add any kind of brightly colored or illuminated accessories as you can. Think white pants or a shirt with light up shoes, glowing glasses, neon sock, or glow stick jewelry… We think you get the picture.
This is a FREE event. But Yelp says they’d feel bad if we had all this fun and didn’t help one of our local organizations. So a suggested $10 donation will be collected at the door and go to support REV Birmingham’s work!
Here is a list of vendors you will see there:
Eugene’s Hot Chicken
Encore Rouge Street Food Truck
Tot Spot Food Truck
Taco Morro Loco
Cantina Tortilla Grill
East 59 Vintage and Cafe
Mis Rubin’s Black Magic and White Magic Seasoning
Pies & Pints
Bud’s Best Cookies
Consider it Joy Baking
Nothing Bundt Cakes
Fannie and Ruby’s Gourmet Dough
Good People Brewing
John Emerald Whiskey, Gin, and Rum
Alabama Crown Wines
We will have our friends from the Oh Brother Radio Show broadcasting LIVE on site during the event. Our friends at Swag Design Studio are also setting up a swanky lounge for everyone to hang out. Music sponsored by Southside Bham and DJ PK.
HOW DO I GET IN?
– You must have or create a Yelp Profile (real name & photo are a must for our Yelpers).
– All guests must be 21 and up.
– You must RSVP AND receive a confirmation from Yelp.
– Putting an RSVP in the thread doesn’t cut it.
WHY SHOULD I COME?
Free food, free booze, awesome entertainment, and gift prizes of plenty to give away. Need we say more?
