Once again, we got to party with the Yelp Elite. THIS time the event was Yelp's High Flyin' Halloween Party at the new Pacific Aviation Museum on Ford Island. And most of these Yelpers went all-out on their costumes (when you're surrounded by recognized critics, your costume HAS to be good). The museum has some amazing World War II era planes and other large scale items on display. This is not a "glass case" kind of museum. The exhibits really put you IN the scene. There is also a lot of floor space since it used to be a military hangar. Great for a dance floor!
This Yelp event was organized once again by the INCREDIBLY talented and detail oriented Emi Hart who we caught up with while setting up the DIY cupcake station. Notice the airplane themed costume. We told you she was all about the details!
The "nerds" from T-Mobile who donated prizes for the costume contest.
Thanks again to Paul's Poppers (who were at the last Yelp event with us)! We would have been STARVING all night if you guys hadn't been there! And the new lilikoi cheesecake popper was killer!
P.F. Chang's kept the drinks going all night. The giant missiles behind them were pretty freaky though.
It was also great to meet Leila Okahara & her husband with Kreative Photo. If you need a photo booth, their rates are REALLY good (like ours)! The print quality from the photos they took was high res, clean & glossy.
Regal Bakery showed off their BACON doughnuts! Of course they also had some vegetarian options too. Makes doughnuts almost sound healthy when you put it that way!
Aloha Beer Company (brewed at Sam Choy's) brought the Aloha Lager!
Another great part of the museum is the Combat Simulator Flights.
When flying like a bat just isn't cutting it.
No Halloween party is complete without a costume contest. Some of our favorites included: Kitana from Mortal Kombat
(Thankfully) Non-Twilight Vampires
Geppetto & Pinocchio
Mr. & Mrs. Julia Childs
Charlie & his two Goddesses - this giant Charlie face just got funnier all night.
And the winner of this year's costume contest...LEGO BATMAN!!
Right after the contest, several of the guests broke out into a flash mob THRILLER.
We hope everyone had as much fun as we did. Here's a few more pictures of the creative costumes that turned up:
