La noche del miércoles los Yelpers fuimos invitados por 3dLab fab&café México a dar un salto al futuro rodeados de impresoras 3d y deliciosos samplers de su menú: Bruschettas de jitomate, wraps cesar, empanadas de queso y jamón, sandwich de berenjena con tocino y reducción de balsámico y de postre mini tartaletas de fresa y muffins de chocolate; todo acompañado de cervezas de nuestros amigos de Cervecería La Patrona. Mientras saboreábamos todo esto, tres suertudos Yelpers tuvieron la oportunidad de ser escaneados para ser clonados en un pequeño mini me de recuerdo mientras Julieta, la propietaria del lugar, nos hablaba de las posibilidades y alcance de esta tecnología. Lee todas las reseñas del evento aquí y revive la experiencia (o descubre de lo que te perdiste) con el álbum de Flickr.

Yelp Toronto welcomed the holiday season in style at Yelp’s Merry Mansion, hosted by beautiful Osteria Dei Ganzi. The venue wowed with bite-size Italian fare and vodka cocktails that kept coming in true wintertide gluttony. Ganzi was in the holiday spirit and it really was a more-the-merrier festivus for the rest of us, with many other vendors joining in! Tequila Tromba wowed with their smooth and spicy apple Winteritas. The Rolling Pin sweetened the evening with gingerbread treats and an edible mansion prize. Steph Bea photography made Elites and their guests look good. As if this wasn’t warm and fuzzy enough, almost $400 was raised for Yelp Toronto’s furry friends at he Toronto Humane Society. ‘Tis the season.

Keepers YEE Blog1

To kick off the most wonderful time of the year, over 30 Elite Yelpers and their guests came together at the beautiful KEEPERS pop up shop on Orchard Road. They were able to browse this trendy, temporary space and get a head start in purchasing some amazing gifts for this holiday season. 

Daily Juice provided some tasty samples of their refreshing, cold-pressed juices. Flavours such as Barnie, Krypto, and Pepplemint were enjoyed by all! And who could forget the Caribbean canapés served by Lime Deli? Telok Ayer's newest takeaway spot kept Yelpers happy with their curry goat, jerk chicken, and their special Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce. In addition to good food and drink, Yelpers put their DIY skills into use in the workshop space, where they made their own holiday cards.

Birmingham Elites Meet Hard To Find Whisky

Posted by Vicky.O

Blog post

Is there anything finer than a wee dram of the good stuff on a cold, wintry evening? The Yelp Birmingham Elites were invited down to Hard To Find Whisky on one such night in Brum to sniff, swirl and taste some of the varieties of Whisky on offer at this specialist store. Between a sensation led tasting (matching Yelpers to Whisky's via the feel, smell and taste of different kinds) and a guided tour around the shop and the distilleries stocked therein (included the legendary Macallan 50 year old at a eye watering £35,000 for the bottle), it was a "Dramtastic" evening! Why not have a read of all the reviews of the event here and see all the fabulous photos on the Flickr page?

Posted by Agnes Lindberg


On Tuesday November 25th, Elites and Yelpers got together at Roy & Son to celebrate Movember and men's health. Male Yelpers got in for free and the ladies gave a small donation to Movember and got their own mustache to show off. While sipping on Macallan Whisky and snacking away they listened to Nils, the head barber, who talked about beards, mustaches and the history of the Barber Shop. One lucky Yelper got a Live grooming while Nils got in deep about products, who knew you could have a bad beard day? There was a photo competion and a lottery where all donations went to Movember. The prizes included a gift card to Roy & Son, a gift card to Linje Tio and three months free Spotify Premium.

Read the reviews and check out the photos, especially these photos. It sure was a night to remember.

Yelp Daytime Disco! @KITSUNE

Posted by Rika Nakazawa


On a sunny autumn Saturday afternoon, about 50 Yelpers gathered at a mysterious underground space “Dining & Bar KITSUNE” on Meji-Street in Ebisu.  The theme of the event was “Daytime Disco!”  With cool beats provided by a hip DJ, Yelpers played Yelper Bingo and tequila roulette.  In the center of the bar, which looks like a spaceship, KITSUNE’s best dishes were showcased.  Their specialty, sushi with a modern twist, was a hit among the Yelpers.  KITSUNE got a facelift in October 2014, making the space even cooler through an extensive renovation.  Walking around, Yelpers almost got lost in the huge underground space.  Cool space, combined with delicious food made the venue a perfect place for a daytime party! Check out reviews and fantastic photos by Kenji Mori!

Posted by Kendall


On Thursday night, Yelp Fort Worth celebrated their amazing selves at the beautiful Robbins Brothers in Arlington. The event was all about the "sin" of pride, and Yelpers weren't afraid to be vain for an evening! We dressed up, tried on Robbins Brothers' gorgeous jewelry, received complimentary jewelry cleanings, took a ton of fabulous pics with MyLivePhotos, and one lucky guest won an incredible Tacori necklace. Deep Eddy Vodka and Woodchuck Hard Cider served delicious drinks, including a signature "Vanity" cocktail made with Deep Eddy Cranberry Vodka, Woodchuck Amber Cider, and a splash of cinnamon schnapps (it tastes like Christmas)! Enjoy all of the fantastic event reviews, photos, and pictures from MyLivePhotos.
