Yelp Around the World, Chicago style!

Say what? Oh, just Yelp Chicago’s biggest party ever, Yelp Around the World!

The Chicago Yelp community descended upon Dank Haus German Cultural Center in Lincoln Square for a night of epic proportions. With DJ Nikki C at the musical reigns, The Flaming Dames Burlesque show on hand to spice things up, the Windy City Roller girls skating about and 800 hot yelpers…the night was sure to be one to remember.

Oh, and it was! With sweet sugar rushes provided by Berry Chill, TCHO Chocolates, Bleeding Heart Bakery, Sweet Collective, Marked for Dessert and RR Chocolats and fine food samplings by Venus, Palermo’s/Red Ivy, Sura Thai Bistro, Thai Urban Kitchen, The Spot, Dine, The Melting Pot and La Gondola, yelpers had their work cut out for them! Ready and waiting to pamper those eatin’, drinkin’, break dancin’ yelpers were the Henna Shop, Urban Lift Hair Salon, massages by Bloom Yoga, rockstar styles by Strange Beauty Show, Exhale Spa and mini manicures by Nail Avenue. Talk about stimulus overload…in the best way possible!

Special thanks to all of our vendors, Beth P and the Yelp CMs from around the country that showed up and rocked the party! Beck’s beer was on tap, Rain Vodka and Buffalo Trace bourbon free flowin’ and Black Swan wines to round out the fabulous selection of libations.

Of course we had to capture all the action! Photos from Dan Gin Photography and snapshots from Victoria Sprung of Sprung Photo documented the evening, as well as vintage photo strips courtesy of!

Whew! Catch ya on the flipside…the best is yet to come!
