2012 Dallas Elite Yelpy Awards

Because we are ending this kick-ass year with a BANG! It was only appropriate that Yelp Dallas hosted its first ever 2012 Dallas Elite Yelpy Awards!

13 beloved elites walked home with the first ever Yelpy Award. That's right – elites voted on their favorite elites in 13 different categories and waited with baited breath for the winners to be revealed at the event at the fabulous Oak Cliff venue, El Sibil and Yes Go Production Studio.

After entering the swanky event in the raw space, production studio. Complimentary bites from Sweet Tomatoes and Lucky Ducky Dogs, were served and kept the guests happy with tomato basil and cheese and broccoli soup and none other than peanut butter and bacon hot dogs.
"Who knew that peanut butter and bacon on a hot dog could be good?!" Melissa B asks! Holly E confirms: "The peanut butter and bacon hot dog was yummy! Thank you Lucky Ducky Dogs!"

Yelpers looked on with admiration at the huge projection wall displaying images from elite events over the year, as well as nods to those awesome nominees! While guests discussed their highlights from the Yelp Year of 2012 and DJ Blake Ward kept the mood perfectly upbeat and cheerful, they sipped complimentary brews from the likes of Julius Echter, Carlsberg, Kronenbourg, and Imperial Beer Boutique. For the non-brew buds, Copa Di Vino was onsite satisfying our sophisticated side in adorable, individually sized portable wine cups that Janice R describes as "cutest little mini plastic bottles that would be perfect to throw in the 'ol purse for emergencies...jk!"
