Yelp Boston Elites get a Taste of the Mediterranean

In true Yelp fashion, the Boston Elite Squad came out to Sabur to sample the savory Mediterranean life and send off Ligaya T with sweet wishes on her west coast journey! With impending economic mayhem and feelings of missing Miss Ligs, Sabur, which translates to "set your worries aside" was the perfect spot to chill out, get down and spend some time together!

Dsc_0314 With candles aglow, yelpers were greeted by the intoxicating scents of aromatherapy from Kameleon Healing. Sharing her gift for wellness and smells,  Cher K designed personalized samples for he Elites to take home!

Dsc_0337 The exotic Mediterranean theme permeated the night, with infused cocktails from 42 Below. Ben, our gracious liquor man, left no yelper thirsty, and made fast friends with Kabir H, Marc C and a bevy of yelp beauties.

Dsc_0473_2Sipping on honey-ginger and pomegranate-nutmeg libations, yelpers lounged on the supple, jewel-toned furniture and noshed on plate after plate of hummus, grilled Balkan sausages and zucchini and feta fritters from the Sabur kitchen.

Dsc_0294 In the spirit of traditional entertainment, Melina of Daughters of Rhea performed a sword-balancing, mind-blowing, booty-shakin' belly dancing routine. She had the crowd mesmerized and even took quite the liking to John L.

Dsc_0374 And what would an Elite event be without a little surprise? Amateur documentarian Trish F set her creativity ablaze with a video of Elites, friends and Yelp staff with messages of well-wishes for Ligaya T. Done on the DL, Trish presented it at the event! Tissues in hand, yelper veterans and the newly Elite were reminded of just why we belong to Yelp in the first place: the awesome, awesome people!

Hats off to Haris and his amazing staff at Sabur, Ben (our new friend) from 42 Below, our own Yumiko F for keeping the door in check, Cher from Kameleon Healing, Sandy from Selena's New Age Psychics and Melina and her wonderful daughters, from Daughters of Rhea.

Oh, and all those rad pictures you're feasting your eyes upon? A BIG thank you to Tatsu I for lending his photographic skills and sweet Nikon D80! For more happy snapshots, check out the photostream. Or share your thoughts on the night's festivities!

Looking forward to next time, Boston!

SYOY!
