Yelp Austin Pulls off a Major Surprise!

Yelp’s Secret Stash @ Handlebar

The Austin Yelp Elite community gathered on Wednesday night to celebrate the amazingness of their Community Director, Kelly S. They pulled off one of the greatest heists in history - a surprise event in honor of Kelly! Amanda M sums it up quite nicely, “I loved that we were able to surprise Kelly because most of the time she's the one surprising us.”

Thanks to Handlebar for hosting us and letting us take over their rooftop patio! Alicka K thought “the bartenders here were friendly and fun” and was pretty excited about a certain item on the roof, “they have an adult size see-saw! If you don't have fun, then you need another drink.”

Thanks to Deep Eddy and Dos Equis for providing us with some great drink specials. As Courtney W put it, “Deep Eddy, I love you and your Ruby Red vodka.” Delish was on hand with their tasty treats. Alicia K said “The millionaire bar is priceless and the cream cheese frosting in the red velvet was divine.”

Jennifer Byers Photography and On the Flipside Photo Booth were on hand to capture it all while DJ Dolomike helped get everyone’s booty shakin’. Heather F said, “Mike L did a great job playing DJ as Dolomike, On the Flip Side had a photo booth set up with awesome props PLUS the always amazing Jennifer Byers had her camera and was taking candids all night”.

It was a great night. We are so glad the Yelp Austin Community could show our appreciation for the great Kelly S. The guest of honor had this to say “5 stars for all of you guys.  Being a part of this group is so much more than a job. It's a vocation, a privilege and a family. At the end of the day, each of you enrich my life and make everything worth it. Thank you.”
