H Street NE/The Atlas District isn’t regularly a locale that a typical
District denizen thinks of when pondering where to go out for a night
on the town. It’s a little gritty, it’s still rough around the edges,
but it’s one of DC’s most up-and-coming neighborhoods. Last night, it
was also the destination of the Yelp Elite Squad as they descended upon
H Street for an extensive, elaborate tour of discovery of one of DC’s
Yelp Elites like Laura V and PC W arrived in style on DC’s premier
party bus, KegBus! The Elite pre-party at The Pug commenced as the
first swanky motorcoach pulled up. Justin S downed some some Vodka
YelpTeanis, mixed up by SurReal Vodka and Honest Tea, while Pabst beers
were being amply sampled by Monty C. The lovely Philly CM, Carrie E,
was in attendance to lend a hand (and pour some beer).
The event kicked into high gear as non-Elite yelpers joined the
shindig for the biggest, baddest bar crawl that Yelp DC has seen yet!
Palace of Wonders, The Red and The Black, Sticky Rice, The Pug, The H
Street Martini Lounge, Granville Moore’s, and The Rock N Roll Hotel all
opened their doors to yelpers, with our many amazing sponsors offering
samples of their products at each location. Premium Distributors
brought in a bevy of different brews, including Magic Hat, Woodchuck,
Pabst, Peroni, Dogfish Head, and Sierra Nevada. Zonin Wines was
pouring deliciously clean prosecco, and Nestle offered up some
much-needed Aqua Panna and Pellegrino to keep everyone hydrated.
Photographers Jane K and Lillian C captured the madness
and motion of the throngs of yelpers as we took over the neighborhood.
