Yelp Philly Celebrates The Wine-iest Elite Event Ever


Lots of grapes sacrificed their lives in order for the fine folks of
the Philadelphia Elite crew to get their wine on at the April event at
Spasso Italian Grill. And oh, how the appetizers kept coming as
well…crowd favorites included such delightful nibbles as potato
croquettes, chicken skewers, tomato bruschetta and of course, the
amazing mussels!

The intimate bar at this hidden gem was the perfect place to rub elbows
(literally – Philly Elite peeps are multiplying like bunnies so there
were a lot of us!) with friends both new and old. As usual, Dave H. was
on camera duty and snapped some great shots of such yelpers as Nate F.,
Bill M., Sara C. & Alexandra S., among others. We got to meet some new folks like Adam C., Zanna H., Lauren P., Stephanie M., Tida A. and Heather LM., and we were blessed
with the presence of Ligaya T., Boston’s very own Community Manager
(Philly loves ya, babe!).

Thanks again to the lovely folks at Spasso for their hospitality, and Octavio for the detailed info on the vino (many of the ladies of Yelp REALLY enjoyed your presence – and your accent). The votes were cast for the Yelpiest White and Reds, and the results are in: the Gaio and Puglia Negro Amaro/Primitivo win! There are tons of events for Elite and the entire community going on, so take note and join us as Yelp Philadelphia gets bigger and better with each passing month!

SYOY (see you on Yelp)!
