They say good things come to those who wait, and for months – no, years – Columbus Elites have dreamt of the day when they get the founder of America's best ice cream all to themselves – well, it finally came!
Yelp Elites in Columbus were treated to an evening in the presence of Jeni Britton Bauer – founder and face of the famed, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams!
Yelp's Special Scoop Elite Event offered the chance for nearly 40 Columbus Elites – including those who completed the "Yelp 100 in 2012 Challenge" – to enjoy an endless sampling of more than 30 delicious Jeni's flavors, a sneak-peek tasting of a soon-to-be released flavor and an exclusive Q&A session with Columbus's sweetheart, with all questions submitted by the Elites themselves. Greg W gushes: "Seriously though, I could've listened to Jeni talk for abours about her business and where her inspirations and passions come from. Especially if I could keep sampling! This is a woman with a love for what she does, and the courage to throw caution to the wind and run with it." Well said!
This event could not have been possible without the help of the ever amazing Jeni's staff who helped pull everything together, so a massive THANKS goes to each one of them as well!
If the photos above aren't enough to make you wish you were there, perhaps the rest of the amazing pics found here might?! Rose DeVore did a tremendous job of capturing the evening and really dipicting how fantastic the night was on camera.
Huge thanks to Jeni, the Clintonville Jeni's staff, the Jeni's marketing team, and of course the Columbus Elites for making this event so memorable.
