Yelp Elites Get Buzzed at Y-Chrome Barber Shop

Portland's Yelp Elite got their buzz on in more ways than one this Thursday, May 20th, 2010, at Portland's newest upscale barber shop – Y-Chrome! With free services, snacks, beer wine, and of course, the best company in town, "this was another testament that we can party anywhere." — Ron T

With Widmer Brewing's new Sunburn Summer Ale in one hand, and a sample-slice of Pazzo Ristorante's delicious thin crust pizza in the other, Yelpers the likes of Jarrod S and Patrick S got their mingle on in this classic-yet-upscale barber shop designed to be a place where guys can be guys. Meanwhile, Olivia T and Tamara K sipped on Bear Flag wines and snacked on a whole array of hors d'ouvres like salami and cheese, brownies, and the like, laid out by the helpful and fun Y-Chrome staff. There was definitely some great drinks and food going down!

While those Yeeps were enjoying their comestibles, Rob W and friends were taking advantage of free chair massages, neck trims and shoe shines, all compliments of the Y-Chrome staff. Meanwhile, Joshua C and his guest took advantage of the pool table and darts upstairs – both a great way to relax after a long day. Jeannie J even walked away with a Father's Day Pamper Package ($120 value!) from Hair M as an awesome raffle prize. Nobody left empty-handed!

All in all, it was a great opportunity for Yelpers to check out one of Portland's newest barber shops, hang out and reconnect with community in an intimate and laid-back setting, and definitely break the mold as far as events go. Big thanks to Celeste, Shannon, the staff at Y-Chrome, Pazzo, Widmer, Heather and Bear Flag, Hair M, Phill, and of course, the Yelp Community, without whom none of this would be possible.

Until next time…
