Vancouver's Locals Only Olympic Rescue Vehicle
This past Olympic weekend, Team Yelp braved the onslaught of tourists, battled through hellish traffic and found parking all over Vancouver for a 30ft Rescue Vehicle, aka the RV, all to ensure yelpers got their basic daily food requirements: coffee, chocolate, chips and candy.
Perhaps you saw the Yelp RV driving through the busy streets of downtown Vancouver, or heard our bullhorn spreading the patriotism...."If you love Canada: "Roar Like a Lion!", "Say Wayne Gretsky!", "Hug a Stranger!", "Give a fist pump!" and on and on. Or maybe you ran into the pajama clad street team who roamed Vancouver 'hoods with their Timbuk2 bags stocked with helpful recommendations for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Natures Path granola bars and Ethical Bean coffee shots.
Inside, Saul Good's Gifts, The Loden Hotel and Saakori palm leaf plates transformed our RV into a home. Yelpers like Mina B hopped on for a ride from one hood to another, or popped in for a snack like Hippy Chips from Left Coast Naturals and wasabi peas from Skeet and Ikes. Along with Frankies candies and CocoaNymph chocolates, everyone who visited left with salty and sweet treats!
Taking the gold were our lunch sponsors Nuba Restaurant and Wallflower, The Modern Diner. On Friday, Nuba spoiled Elites (and us) with plates of hummus, baba ganoush and mmm.. feta. Saturday's feast of virgin Caesars, sliders and wraps from The Wallflower kept us powered up all the way through the day.
It was a gold medal weekend all the way! Check out the action shots and read the first hand commentary.
This is team Yelp signing off with a big high five...Until next time, SYOY!
