Rarin’ to go after the holiday hiatus, over 300 yelpers gathered at The Grid in Chicago's River North neighborhood for the Yelp Elite New Shirt Showcase. One of the cities hottest new venues saw guests in their fresh new threads and even welcomed a few fresh new faces to the squad of 2013!
Guests enjoyed bacon wrapped dates, cheeseburger meatballs, crab Rangoon and other horderves served by some of the most spot on staff in Chicago. Washed down with complimentary beer, wines, and signature cocktails including a glazed doughnut infused flavor it was quite the way to start off a year of yelping.
Besides amazing food samples and stellar spirits entertainment included DJ spun tunes, the coziest fireplaces in town and an “Unwanted Gift Exchange” where 100 guests donated their discarded presents from the holiday season. Hoping to unwrap something more special than originally received, several lucky winners walked away with rad prizes including Yelp shirts, As Seen On TV toys, and tickets to the d'Vine Affair at the end of the month.
Until next time, SYOY (See You On Yelp)
