What’s better than an afternoon filled with food, fun, friends and holiday cheer? Not much, especially if you have your own Yelp wine glass filled with free-flowing vino! Saturday, December 5th was the finale OYE of 2009 for Phoenix yelpers, and needless to say, it was "a wonderful yelpy time."
AZ Wine was a fitting venue for the event... Huge kudos to Aaron, Anthony, and Cheyenne of Symposium Brands for educating and pouring generous tastes of the following wines:
*Pazo Blanco, Ribeiro, Spain
*MacRostie, Chardonnay, Carneros, CA
*Fess Parker, Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara, CA
*Araco, Crianza, Rioja, Spain
*Montes de Segura, Crianza, Rioja, Spain
*Loli Casado, POLUS, Tempranillo, Rioja, Spain
As if that wasn't enough, Harold's provided an incredible buffet of food. Yelpers noshed on spinach artichoke dip with rosemary flatbread, NY Strip Skewers, coconut and Italian seasoned chicken tenders, and margarita pizza. Thanks Margaret and Jill - we'll have to come visit you soon... we love Harold's!
Finally, a holiday card-making station, fantastic raffle prizes including a massage from Space, and Yelp lunchboxes for all were icing on the cake at this event. But yelpers gave back as well... to our "adopt-a-family." After all, everyone deserves to enjoy the holidays.
Until 2010, SYOY!
