Got a lovely invite to the Yelp Boston Red Carpet Party this past Tuesday. Usually when Boston is going through a Heatwave, it is best to stay put in your living room with your DVR remote in hand. But this was the perfect excuse to head out to Cambridge and go have some fun. My date for the evening was the infamous Caroline. 'Julie, its a 14 minute walk from the T.. and I'm wearing Christian Louboutins....' Fear not.. she made it just fine.
While I did not manage to see Ryan Seacrest on the Red Carpet, it was still pretty fun. We took a Prom-like picture (we called it Real Housewives Pose) in front of the Yelp Cameraman, and then it was time to head in. It was held at the Harvard Natural History Museum, and I don't know what better way to get JQ into a museum but bribe her with booze & tasty treats from some of the best restaurants in Boston!
Spread throughout the whole 3rd floor were fun little stops. We had cupcakes from Sweet!
Empanadas from Masa Restaurant!
There was even a section where you could get your hair did, makeup done, nails manicured, eyebrows plucked.. but since I am always red carpet ready, I did not have to wait in line for this. Just kidding. I had to head out early.. blerg!
Then it got scary. I wondered off to the Taxidermy section. I remember when I was a kid I used to love looking at the animals, but now? I freaked the eff' out!!!!!!!!! I couldn't even walk through the room. Finally, I put on a brave front because I knew the Hippo wanted to be on the blog. But the bears & the lions? Sorry darlings. Too scary! Maybe I will face my fears and give it another shot some time.
Thank you Yelp Boston!
