Yelp's End Of Summer Stunner Elite Event @ Cielo
On Monday night, summer went out in style thanks to St. Louis Elites and their wonderful plus ones. Yelpers came out to Cielo in their finest cocktail attire and bid farewell to the hot summer sun. What better place than the eighth floor of The Four Seasons backlit by the St. Louis skyline!
After arriving, guests were allowed access to three signature drinks crafted by Cielo mixologist and restaurant manager, Corry Cuff. A special thanks to Jim Beam for sponsoring our event and making these cocktails come to life! Guests had their pick from No Clouds In The Sky, Basil Hayden Old-Old Fashioned, and Pineapple-Basil Smash. Anita K, "really liked these choices! I even tried a small sip of the old fashioned and liked it more than I thought I might." Three free drinks? Three times the fun!
Guests were spoiled by the spread of passed appetizers. The bites included jumbo coconut toasted shrimp, cheeseburger sliders, potstickers, and artichoke fried goat cheese balls. Lorraine N raves about the artichoke and goat cheese balIs, "They were my favorite. I mean who doesn't like a good goat ball?" Cielo kept the eats coming all night long but you can’t forget dessert! Amy’s Corner Bakeshop showed up with a scrumptious array of sugary treats. Amy and her husband came out themselves to dish out these treats. Guests had their pick of St. Louis’ native gooey butter cake, good ole’ pretzel cookies, and decadent chocolate mousse. Lizzy L "loved the pretzel cookies by Amy's Corner Bakeshop, which apparently just opened up a few weeks ago." Yelpers love a good sugar rush!
This smoking hot party goes down in the books as my very first Elite event as the St. Louis Community Manager! I want to give a special thanks to everyone who came out and partied as well as our vendors and venue that made it happen. A special thanks goes out to Brea Photography for documenting this monumental moment. For the full set of photos, check out Yelp’s Flickr Page.

I'm already looking forward to the next one! Until then...See You On Yelp!
