I got invited to attend a Yelp Elite event with my boyfriend last week.
Let me just say that Yelp events are never boring or dull. I always leave with an amazing experience and new information. Whether it be a new vendor that I fell in love with or just discovering new things that I like.
This event was called Yelping through the Decades. On the invite it said to dress up in your favorite decade or festive attire. My boyfriend and I decided last minute to take the 50’s decade. We put on our greaser gear on and boom we were off.
It was held in King Richard’s Antique Center in Whitter, CA. This was the most amazing antique place I have ever been to. They had a bunch of modern furniture and even some ugly Christmas sweaters on display.
What surprised me the most is how festive the whole store was. When you walked in there was carolers singing away and they were so cute!
I have never experienced carolers so, I was trying my hardest to keep my cool. When you checked in you donation $10 each. All the money went towards the Ozzy Foundation (which is for animals). In return you got to sample a lot of amazing food, take photos and even get a pet toy.
We had these mouth watering oysters from Maine and New York. They were so good we came back three times.
They had a Pin Up Cakes and their chocolate peanut butter macaroon were out of this world. They basically melted in your mouth.
Califia Farms was there passing out spiked drinks and yes their eggnog would knock your socks off.
If you a big fan of Jello Shots then you should check out Ludlows Cocktail Jelly Shots. *They are REALLY strong.
Yelp even managed to wow my boyfriend when he saw their Krave Beef Jerky sample tent. They had samples of all of there flavors.
I even fell in love with a new drink brand called Bai. Their drink have no sugar added. I love their Mango, Dragon Fruit and Pomegranate drink. Something that I thought was cute was that they had a photoshoot area to instagram your fun. When you included their hashtag your photo would get printed out.
Here is some go the free alcohol we got to try. I am not a fan of beer but this cider beer was amazing. I could honest drink it and it feel like it isn’t a chore. After we picked up our feel beer the next booth gave us some free stackable wine. Heinek was offering free beer but since it is not my favorite I just passed.
As for food they had Lahtt Sause there and they had their signature sauce and dumplings to try.The Pub at Chino Hills had some delicious pork belly they were giving out. Lava was also there with their handcrafted Bloody Mary mix. The famous Pink’s even gave out hotdogs. We chose their Chill Dogs.
All in all we had an amazing time. We got so many freebies and we were even featured on Yelp page.
