El pasado miércoles, el Pelotón de Élite de Yelp Madrid vivió la Navidad al modo mexicano. Más de sesenta Élites conocieron de primera mano Corazón de Agave, una nueva coctelería del barrio de La Latina que pone el acento en los cócteles hechos con tequilas y agaves de primera calidad. La parte comestible vino de la mano del catering Rossini, que puso toda su creatividad a trabajar y dejó huella en los asistentes, quienes degustaron algunos aperitivos tan especiales como un mar y montaña confeccionado con anchoa y cecina o un steak tartar que estimuló las glándulas salivares de nuestro avezado Pelotón de Élite. La catarsis vino con la apertura de sendas piñatas, que aportaron el broche definitivo de este último evento de 2014. ¿Quieres saber más? ¡Entonces echa un vistazo a las reseñas y las fotografías del evento!

At the door of El Afilador, a tasteful shop full of vintage furniture they were prompted to choose a color: blue or green? Elites were divided then in two groups: the ones who chosen green had the opportunity to taste wine at the same time they were learning how to create beautiful flower arrangements. The ones who chosen blue went to the shop’s workshop, where they had the opportunity to enjoy a blind test driven by Coto Pelayo while learning how to renovate a beautiful wood box.

El pasado mes de abril tuvo lugar una nueva fiesta de Yelp en Sevilla. En esta ocasión nos dimos cita en el local de reciente apertura Garbanzo Negro, en pleno centro de la ciudad. Casi 80 Yelpers llenaron el local que tan gustosamente Ana, la propietaria del negocio, había cedido para la ocasión, ofreciéndonos a todos una deliciosa degustación de sus platos más famosos y de los que todos los asistentes se acabaron quedando prendados.
Allí nos acompañaba Urbano, de Delicius Gastrocopas, que de nuevo se animaba a participar en una de nuestras Fiestas ofreciendo un delicioso gintonic a los Yelpers. También preparó un estupendo ponche de frutas sin alcohol para los que tenían que conducir posteriormente. Junto a él estaba Paco, El Enógrafo, que también repetía experiencia ofreciéndonos unas copas de sus vinos más preciados y haciendo disfrutar el paladar de casi la totalidad de asistentes.
Las geniales fotos del evento corrieron a cargo de Ernesto Villalba que, una vez más, demostró por qué es el fotógrafo preferido de los Yelpers. Evento al que viene Ernesto, avatar nuevo para casi todo el mundo. Mención especial al equipo de DJs y a Daniel Espinosa por prestarse a controlar el acceso al local durante las dos horas que estuvimos allí.
