It's impossible to talk about São Paulo without mentioning its big skyscrapers, graffiti artists and, of course, its incredible variety of gastronomic options. What if it was possible to combine all of these things in one place? Well, that was exactly what we did last night! On September 10th, Yelpers from all parts of the city came to Butantan Food Park for the first Yelper Party in Latin America. More than 500 guests and 27 partners got together to enjoy Beco do Yelp (Yelp's Alley), an amazing party that gathered funds for non-profit, Projeto Quixote. There was a lot of street culture going on: complete with an exhibit of skateboarding videos, a breakdancing challenge, on top of an enormous amount of delicious food, live painting and even massage sessions! You can read the reviews here and see the marvelous photos. Still curious? We have some more info here!

Last night was a quite a remarkable one for Rio's Yelp Elite Squad and their guests. The lucky bunch enjoyed a very special dinner at Restô, one of the most charming restaurants in Ipanema. Chef Tande Bittencourt prepared an amazing list of dishes from which Yelpers could pick their favorites to create a three course-meal. While savoring all of the delicious food, the 20 happy guests sipped on a very tasty and refreshing ginger-cucumber sangria!

Humankind biggest question: "to be or not to be..." healthy? Sometimes being healthier means sacrificing one of the best pleasures in life: eating. But thankfully, this is not the case at Vinheria Percussi. São Paulo Yelpers went on a gastronomic ride to the organic world of tasteful food, and sampled an entire menu made with organic ingredients. From appetizers to dessert, and even the wine, this dinner was a treat on its own. If you want to have a little taste of deliciousness, read the yummy reviews here, and see the great photos taken by Anderson Salomão at our Flickr gallery or in our Facebook page.

Nothing makes a book better than a good cup of Joe and last Saturday the Yelp Elite Squad in São Paulo came together to learn more about specialty coffee, swaping books and Sofá Café. Diego Gonzales, owner of Pinheiros' premier coffeeshop, prepared a very special lesson demistifying what we thought we knew about coffee and offered some tips and tricks on how to properly make and appreciate the national beverage. Check out the reviews here, and the awesome photos snapped by Lori Warriner on our Flickr page.

Have you ever thought about seeing São Paulo's landmarks by night, getting to know the city biking from one architectural marvel to another? Yelp, together with Urban Bike SP, organized a cool 3-hour ride through downtown Sampa and took Yelpers on a trip to re-visit their own city. The tour took cyclists from Paulista Avenue to Republica Square, exploring places like Liberdade (Japan Town) and Sé Cathedral. The guides, Renato Góes and João Pejan, regaled yelpers with interesting facts about each landmark, giving everyone a lesson about São Paulo and its epic stories. The ride finished at JazzB, where everyone got a taste of some amazing snacks and homemade tea infusions while kicking back to live jazz! If you're curious to see the pictures and read what everyone thought about this event, check out the photo album and read the reviews!
