Elite Event: Meet Your Seoul Mate - Saja Korean Kitchen

Last Monday the San Diego Elite Squad was asked a question: "are you in the mood for an evening of Korean inspired food and drinks?" The answer was definitively "yes" and they were in luck seeing that the fine folks at Saja opened their doors especially for them! As a new addition to the city, Saja Kitchen is an amplified Korean bistro concept bringing the dynamic flavors of Korea to Downtown San Diego and they were excited to strut their stuff. Food and drinks flowed freely and the music pumped as the crowd snapped and uploaded a slew of pictures. Check out all the reviews here and the photos from Chris Brake Photography here! Jeulgil!

İstanbul'da parfümü keşfe çıktık!

Posted by Gakten

Batı sezer

A Thursday night couldn't have smelled any better! At a very cute little personalized perfume shop, Batı Sezer, we not only learned all the wrong things that we thought were right, but also tried many different kinds of perfumes and even took one with our name written home! It was an amazing treat and we all loved the designs of the bottles and the smells of course. Batı Sezer is a great shop for personalized perfumes and anyone that's interested in trying different perfumes and learning more about what kind of perfume they should wear should give it a try. We can't thank enough to Batı Sezer family for the great event as we woke up smelling awesome after last night! Wanna learn more about what everyone says and the details of the event? Then check out the reviews and the pics!

Babeland Gets Five Sexy Stars...Again!

Posted by peter d.


We said it before, and we'll say it again: We all deserve to have safe, enjoyable sex. It's fun, it's natural, and whether you're a hopeless neophyte (like this guy) or a practiced pro looking to perfect an already excellent game, Babeland is here for you. This female-first shop wants everyone to have the sex life they want. In fact, they literally wrote the book on it (seriously, it's called Moregasm), and Babeland is a pleasant, judgment-free place to get top quality products and most importantly, all the information and encouragement you ever wanted (and some you didn't know you needed). Last night they invited the Brooklyn Elite Squad out again for their hilarious and informative Sex Toys 101 class, and once again, it was a blast. If you aren't too scared, peep the reviews and photos for a sexy lil' rewind, and read on if you dare.

Yelp Oslo Brewery Tour

Posted by Maria Sundby


Thursday October 23 new Yelpers and a few Elites found their way to a small and intimate nano-brewery; Little Brother Brewery. Ready for tasting and touring, we were told the unique story behind the brewery, and even got to know some tricks and tips for the brewing of craft beer. Hops and malt was handed out, and we could all feel and smell the basic ingredients of the local brew.

After the tour we walked up to Café Nero in our super hero rain kits. Café Nero gave us a warm welcome; candles lid, and four big bottles of Little Brother beer was waiting for us on each table: the great beer and Yelp quiz could begin! We voted for our favourite beer, and the winner of the night was Little Brother Coffee Stout! This big beer bottle was decorated with our Yelp medallion, and received a great applause from the new beer experts of the night. In the cosy environment of Café Nero, with new friends and good beer we all enjoyed this fun evening together.

Read the reviews of the event, and check out the photos from the event here.

A great thanks to our sponsors: Little Brother Brewery and Café Nero


Torsdag 23. oktober fant 15 nye yelpere og et par eliter veien til det lille, intime nano-bryggeriet: Little Brother Brewery. Klare for omvisning og smaking, fikk vi fortalt den unike historien bak Little Brother Brewery. Humle og malt ble sendt rundt slik at alle fikk smake og lukte basisingrediensene i det lokale brygget.

Etter omvisningen gikk vi sammen til Café Nero; alle ikledd våre superhelt regnværsjakker! Café Nero ga oss en varm velkomst med tente lys og fire flasker Little Brother på hvert bord. Den store øl og Yelp-quizen kunne begynne! På slutten av kvelden stemte vi frem vår øl-favoritt. Vinneren ble Little Brother Coffee Stout! Flasken ble ikledd vår Yelp medalje og feiret med nok en brakende applaus. I koselige omgivelser på Café Nero, med nye venner og god øl hadde vi alle en trivelig kveld sammen.

La Vita è Bella at Tommy’s in OKC

Posted by Julie P

Tommy 600

Tommy's Italian American Grill welcomed Oklahoma City Elites to sample their Italian-American menu, as well as their legendary style and service. We began the evening in the bar with a signature bellini before making our way to the upstairs patio, where we were greeted by the jazz stylings of local musicians Justin Echols and Nathan Eicher. As always, A Date With Iris provided beautiful flower arrangements featuring local blooms.

Amuse bouche and appetizer courses were served on the patio, until a light rain sent us into the restaurant; Tommy had our back-up plan fully prepared! Downstairs, we enjoyed a salad course, our choice of delectable entrees and a gelato and cookie course. Excellent servers Leah, Ty and Sam kept the wine and beer flowing all night and rolled with the always unpredictable Oklahoma weather. Even the band moved inside to keep the party going! Tommy took it over the top with this event, as you can see from the amazing 5-star reviews and the Flickr gallery. Ciao, bella!

Madrid revives the Golden Age of Hollywood!

Posted by Lolo R.


Last Tuesday, the Yelp Madrid Elite Squad got to revive Hollywood's Golden Age. More than sixty Elites got to enjoy the new decoration at Diurno, one of the most seasoned cafés in the Chueca neighborhood. The attendees were treated with an amazing Kir Royal as a welcome drink, and after that the party continued with wine and beer. As usual, Elites got also a good bite of Diurno's menu, tasting the amazing croquettes, an incredible salmon with sour cream, honey-seasoned eggplant and lemon pie, among other delicacies served by the restaurant. Nonetheless, one of the highlights of the evening was a tap dance performance. Do you want to know more? Then take a look at the reviews and the pictures from the event!

The new and already popular Yolo Brewing Company hosted two consecutive nights of brewery tours last week exclusively for our most enthusiastic online beer aficionados.

Each Elite walked away with a 22 ounce selection of their product and plenty of Yelp goodies. Special thanks go out to Yolo Brewing Co.
