Yelp NC Triangle Has A Holly Bolly Elite Event!

Posted by Christina Gates

Before the company Christmas parties, cookie exchanges, and general craziness that marks December, the Triangle's Yelp Elite Class of 2012 gathered one last time for a farewell frolic at downtown Raleigh's Mantra.

The upscale Indian restaurant's staff busied themselves serving platter-after-platter of samples, from lamb samosas to cabbage rolls. While the bartenders poured vino (thanks to Cupcake Vineyards!) and mixed up holiday-esque cocktails in the form of Peppermint Patties and more...

To keep things lively, we brought in the talented Cassandra of Character Paints, who hustled through intricate henna designs all night!  And Varun, who gave us a fantastic taste of Bollywood drumming. But the company of cool Yelpers (100 of 'em!) is what really made the evening shine: "I thought the event was a hit! I felt like I was at home having a dinner party with my family," sums Amber K.
