Seattle Yelpers Get Lei'd In South Lake Union!

Posted by Katy

It was a foodie's paradise in sleepy South Lake Union this Monday night in Seattle. Rockin' their best Hawaiian shirts yelpers came from all over town to be wined and dined at 4, yes 4 local businesses!

Kickin' things off in style the folks from Vulcan and the South Lake Union Discovery Center greeted guests with Hawaiian leis, Yelp schwag and super cool goodie bags! Everyone was given coupons to local South Lake Union businesses, tickets for free food samples at the much anticipated South Lake Union Block Party, complimentary sunglasses and more!

After mixing and mingling the large group was split into three. Outfitted with Hawaiian leis and color-coated name tags, Elites and their guests divided into red, blue and green dining groups. With matching maps and group leaders each time headed off to one of three neighboring restaurants.

Tutta Bella spared no expense with their nummy Neapolitan style pizzas. With fresh pies popping out of the oven every 4 minutes, it was not hard for yelpers to devour all 3 varieties of pizza on their quick 40 minute tour. And what better way to wash pizza down than with booze? Guests were treated to a choice of beer from Big Al Brewing, champagne or a mixed drink. Fresh made tiramisu was also on hand for those that still had belly room!

A quick walk down a block and dining groups were also treated like royalty at Flying Fish. Opening up a VIP room where guests could meet the head chef was just the tip of the iceberg as trays of crab cakes and other delectable were on hand to pair with a nice glass of Rose´.

Still not full? Rounding the night out the lovely team at Portage Bay Cafe also offered their talent for this event. Yet another block from the other two spaces, this beautiful restaurant opened its doors late-night to give Elites a sample of their catering menu. Whether it was risotto balls or lamb burgers, all that was left at the end of the night was a room full of smiling faces and loosened belts!
