Yelp Takes Over H Street NE

Hstreetsign H Street NE/The Atlas District isn't regularly a locale that a typical District denizen thinks of when pondering where to go out for a night on the town.  It's a little gritty, it's still rough around the edges, but it's one of DC's most up-and-coming neighborhoods.  Last night, it was also the destination of the Yelp Elite Squad as they descended upon H Street for an extensive, elaborate tour of discovery of one of DC's hidden gems!Hstreet2

Yelp Elites like Laura V and PC W arrived in style on DC's premier party bus, KegBus!  The Elite pre-party at The Pug commenced as the first swanky motorcoach pulled up.  Justin S downed some some Vodka YelpTeanis, mixed up by SurReal Vodka and Honest Tea, while Pabst beers were being amply sampled by Monty C.  The lovely Philly CM, Carrie E, was in attendance to lend a hand (and pour some beer).

Crowdpug The event kicked into high gear as non-Elite yelpers joined the shindig for the biggest, baddest bar crawl that Yelp DC has seen yet! Palace of Wonders, The Red and The Black, Sticky Rice, The Pug, The H Street Martini Lounge, Granville Moore's, and The Rock N Roll Hotel all opened their doors to yelpers, with our many amazing sponsors offering samples of their products at each location.  Premium Distributors brought in a bevy of different brews, including Magic Hat, Woodchuck, Pabst, Peroni, Dogfish Head, and Sierra Nevada.  Zonin Wines was pouring deliciously clean prosecco, and Nestle offered up some much-needed Aqua Panna and Pellegrino to keep everyone hydrated.

The grand finale ensued at Sticky Rice, where box seat tickets to a DC United game and a Nats game were raffled off to the cheers of the crowd.

Photographers Jane K and Lillian C captured the madness and motion of the throngs of yelpers as we took over the neighborhood. Check out the pictures on flickr!

Hey H Street NE - thanks for having us.  We'll be back for more!Hstreet3 Hstreet6Hstreet5_2
