A French Soirée in Helsinki

Posted by Kirstiet

Happy faces at the Exhibitionists in Helsinki

Yelp Helsinki welcomed the Yelp community to the lovely café, the Exhibitionists, in Töölö to enjoy an evening inspired by France. The lovely hosts treated the guests with some delicious smörrebröds that contained, for instance, brie and chèvre. However, it was the Millionaire Shortbread that really made mouths water: the sweet treat consisted of three luscious layers of crispy crust, rich fudge-like caramel and dark chocolate.

It was a hot summer evening and Soda Co. Hki provided some much needed cooling for the Yelpers: people had a hard time choosing their favorite between the strawberry falvoured Berry Straw, the lemony Señor Lemon and the crisp Brad Ginger. All the sodas are made of natural ingredients and they are produced in Kokemäki, Finland.

Folk duo Odessa added a nice touch to the evening and the photo booth encouraged people to goof around and to take part in the photo competition. Seemed like the theme of the night was "more is more" as Yelpers were very keen on using all the available props from a flamingo hat to wigs and mustaches. In the end it was time to pick the winner: a gorgeous couple was photographed together for the very first time and that shot won them the prize.

The evening was full of smiles and laughter as you can see in these photos.

A warm thanks to our sponsors The Exhibitionists and Soda Co. Hki!
