With checklists, Twitter handles and hashtags, and a TweetWall streaming live, 150 Vegas yelpers were ready to connect and spread the #YelpHelps word. And, there was plenty to talk about! Exhibit Fair International decked the venue out with custom backlit bars, cocktail tables, shining Yelp gobo, and they caught the entire evening on video, including a live performance by The Blind Center of Nevada's Bell Choir.

Yelpers were able to get goofy with the paparzzi thanks to the green screen photo opportunity provided by LV Photo Party. Libations were plenty with award wining cosmos, margaritas and mojitos from VnC Cocktails and a signature jewel martini from Bombay Sapphire, and vegan specialties from Chef Mayra and Sunflower Market, sandwiches from Johnny McGuire's, and sweet treats from Peas & Carrots and Cupkates kept the crowd energized for mixing, mingling, and making a difference.
