Yelp's 2nd Annual Holiday Party

It's been awhile since I've posted, no good reason really, but last night was certainly enough of a reason. What was last night, you ask? Well, curious reader, it was our 2nd Annual Holiday Bash at the California Academy of Sciences!

Despite the weather, we had over 1200 fine yelpers and their friends come out over the night (so unlike Milli Vanilli, we have no need to blame it on the rain). The party was such a success thanks in large part to TheBar.com and our friends at Zipcar, the latter offering complimentary "designated drives" home all night long. Guests at the Yelp Elite cocktail reception beforehand also had the chance to sample some great food from Destino , Zazil, Blowfish Sushi and Lingba Lounge, not to mention a Yelp Cake fresh from Inticing Creations.

Don't believe me? Then take a look at these snazzy candids from The Photoboof and the party photos to your right!

Aside from seeing all you smart and sassy yelpers, a personal highlight for me was finding out that - thanks to your generous donations - One Brick received almost $4500! That's enough to allow them to create volunteer events equivalent to two years of assistance to the non-profits they serve!

So yeah, I guess I'm pretty excited to have something to post about. Happy Holidays, Peace Out, Ho Ho Ho, and all that.

SYOY,

Santa Nish

I'm so glad I was part of this event. It was great that everyone made it out, and the fact that we raised $4500 for charity is a huge bonus. Let's party together again soon, Yelp! Way to make it happen, Nish and the rest of the staff.
