They Call me Mrs Fete :YUMA Neon - The Review


Fete : YUMA Neon Drinks Inclusive, QRC Grounds
Price: $350.00 Female, $400.00 Male 
Date: February, 11 2012


Location:
Yuma NEON drinks inclusive was held at the magnificent Queens Royal College grounds. Although it was advertised as Queen’s Park West and not the QRC grounds I am sure patrons were confused as to where to go. Hopefully clarification of the venue would be better next time because I had to contact a member of the Yuma committee to verify where Queens Park west was.

Ambiance/Décor: 
The concept NEON was definitely recognised as the college was lit in bright neon pink giving it the jovial feel of what NEON should be. On entry patrons were greeted by beautiful promo girls in costumes as you walked thru the lobby area onto the courtyard. The bar was the centre attraction as it was a full 360 degrees. Screens were located at the centre of the bar with neon lights to complement the décor and sticking to the theme of the event. Elevated above the bar was the stage and DJ, so no matter where you were located at the venue drinks were easily accessible, the DJ was front and centre and performers had excitement of interacting with almost all the patrons at any angle of the stage.

Decor was definitely an upgrade from last year’s NEON at Hilton’s tennis court, even though the venue seemed smaller as the bar took up half the courtyard with little place to roam. Besides the main bar there were various other drinks booths to choose from to get your favourite drink at your convenience.
Since little or no advertising for the event was construed, I suppose the size of the venue was chosen for the anticipated attendees. The event gave you the experience of being at an all-inclusive party without the food.
3.5 stars for the transformation of the courtyard and college into a NEON atmosphere.

Bar: 
When Yuma say drinks inclusive, they mean it because the venue perimeter was surrounded with drink booths ranging from Patron, Jack Daniels, Nuvo, Angostura Rum Coctails, Lucozade, Blue Waters and Pepsi. The main bar was fully stocked with Premium drinks (minus Johnny Walker). 4.5 stars for the bar/drinks next time please get Johnnie Walker Yuma, not everybody likes Jack Daniels.

Food: 
Food was a great disappointment for me as they only had a Gyro stall. Like allyuh forget is $30.00 for a gyro now. Needless to say the gyro went down good. Yuma where the doubles and corn soup people from last year??? We need variety because after consuming all that alcohol a gyro is not enough. To add to the food list Cold Stone Creamery was available for the ice cream lovers.

Performances: 
Just as last year there was no live band performance, just appearances from various acts that definitely pleased the crowed. There were performances from K. Rich, Iwer George, Kes, Destra, JW and Blaze, Kerwin Du Bois and Sawppi. Each performance was well received but Kes was the best performer of the night.

Crowd Vibe:
I thought this party was never going to pick up, because the crowd was dead for probably the first two and half hours of the party. Subsequent to the performances party mood was in full swing and the crowed revelled to the DJ music. A major highlight for me was when the rain started to fall and the DJs had their way with us, as we were single forever jab jabs pumping our flags with our bottle of rum in our hand while dropping on the ground and rolling. Crowd was nice with beautiful people, guessing this is the vibe we gonna get on the read with Yuma come Monday and Tuesday.

Bathroom: 
Bathroom facilities were way better than last year as we didn’t have to go down a hill and bear the risk of falling down after consuming all that alco. The gents got the boys’ facilities on the compound, an insider told me that the male toilets was like the one inside a prison with the graffiti on the walls, but I wouldn’t know that.

Overall Rating:
I would give NEON an overall rating of 8 out of 10. The party wasn’t overly packed, enjoyed great performances, ambience and premium drinks. As mentioned before MAJOR disappointment on food and not to mention NO Johnnie Walker. 2013 I know this party wouldn’t disappoint
