Distinguished Yelpers donned their shiny new badges and their finest duds to celebrate their induction into the 2013 Northern Virginia Elite Squad at Yelp's 2013 Inaugural Bash!
Guests were hosted in an intimate glass-walled building at the brand new Mosaic Center with a backdrop of lit trees and the dark, starry sky. "The glass area definitely got the attention of bystander's prying eyes. Who's inside? What are they doing? I felt special for being one of the few chosen ones to party it up," Kat V reports.
Ah Love Oil & Vinegar, a specialty food shop provided an array of treats such as dark chocolate balsamic drizzled strawberries, lemon pound cake with citrus vinegar, homemade parmesan crisps, and spicy chocolate and roasted olive oil bites. Elites gave five-stars to the cocktail concoction of the night - - Prosecco with a Honey and Citrus Balsamic Vinegar. "I didn't say no to anything last night!" Elain X confesses.
DJ Uzzle was on hand to keep us in the mood and in the groove all night long. "That guy is the truth!" exclaims Nene K.
A big thanks goes out to Bulleit Bourbon, Langford Market and Artisan Confections for generously donating gift baskets and gift certificates to be raffled off to guests who checked in to the event on their mobile Yelp app!
