Philadelphia ushered in its largest Yelp Elite Event of the year on Monday night at Lucky Strike Lanes. From the moment yelpers crossed the threshold, servers were eagerly waiting to offer bottled beer and glasses of wine. Bowling shoes were picked up and the many lanes filled with the quickness. Pool tables were occupied throughout the night, while others chose to simply chill in the lounge area, taking in the Phillies game.
Stationed snacks and passed hors d' oeuvres including brie, apple and bacon quesadillas, vegetable dumplings, fried mac and cheese bites and pizza were more than plentiful throughout the evening. Yelp koozies lied in waiting for people to insulate their beers.
A raffle was held and a gift certificate for a bowling party for eight was awarded to Meg B's guest, Jason. And in a surprise twist, another gift certificate was awarded to the bowler with the lowest score in game 1: elite yelper Jessica M! Keep practicing, Jess!
Reviews are pouring in and elite yelper Yiwen S believed this YEE to be "THE BEST elite event so far." It wouldn't have been possible without the generosity of Lucky Strike and their incredibly friendly staff who worked the room tirelessly throughout the party to make sure guests were happy. Extra thanks to Kimberly, Joshua and Daniel of Lucky Strike Lanes Philadelphia, plus Yelp intern Allison B for holding it down at the check-in table.
