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.

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.
