There are shindigs and there are soirees. There are gatherings and there are parties. There are get-togethers and there are bashes, but then there's Hot Summer Nights with Yelp and dangit, you need to invent a whole new category of cool to describe a ta-doo like that!! I mean just look to your right at all of the blackmail, err, umm, photos from the event!
If you ask me, Wednesday the 21st had it all: There was the awesome 3-level Roe where the fun went down. Then there were all of the tasty palate-pleasing beverages from Wasabe Vodka, Arrowood Winery and Rockstar.
If you were one of the proud, few Yelp Elite Squad members who came to the pre-party, you left with a limited edition Yelp Elite t-shirt designed by Michael E. There were the Nguyen Dancers doin’ their thing, Hella Tight on the 1's and 2's, Ruud Photographics snappin’ away, and of course Zipcar who helped get many of you yelpers home safe and sound!
There was even a kidnapping! A what?! Yes, I said a kidnapping of Sarah Michelle Gellar, our beloved celebrity spokesperson. We are all still mourning the loss here in the office, so any information on her whereabouts will be greatly appreciated (and depending on the info, rewarded...)
And of course, there were the real stars of the evening, all of you SF yelpers! I met so many characters and people, a "real" treat. I can’t wait to get the LA Yelp invasion started! And if you're ever in the City of Angels, don't hesitate to look me up!
