Around the World in 80 Yelps
lp Yelp and Crossroads invited an exclusive group of Yelpers to to embark on a culinary journey around the world! Located across the street from the World Bank and IMF Building, Crossroads offers tastes of cuisines from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. It was a "total win in terms of concept for this Yelp event. I loved the travel theme and the passports were a super awesome touch. I also liked the board games that were on the tables. These and other little touches really upped this event," testifies Samantha G.
Upon check-in, guests were given a passport with their itinerary for the night which included Goat Cheese Truffle and Kalamata Olive Brochette in Europe, Duck Wing Lollipops with Lemongrass, Ginger and Thai Basil in Asia, Shrimp Hushpuppies with Remoulade Sauce in North America, Lamb and Chorizo Meatballs with Tomato Chipotle Cream in South America, Lamb in a Blanket and Merguez sausage wrapped in puff pastry in Africa. "The opportunity to try different kinds of food from around the globe while never leaving the oppressively hot DC was truly unique!" Nikkia G raves.
Poshbooth DC was also on hand to snap photos of Yelpers in their jetsetter attire. "This aspect of the event was great - the photobooth staff were super nice, informative and on task. We had fun with different poses and took two different sets so each of us could go home with a set of pictures as each take only produced two picture sets. Definitely a must-have at future Yelp events." Kassie C recommends. At the end of the event, Yelpers excitedly waited to see if their name would be called to win one of the ten $100 travel vouchers to Groundlink, DC's next generation car service.
