The Yelp Country Club Comes To Randall’s Island Golf Center!

Whether they were having a ball, hitting balls or just going balls to the wall something very special happened amongst New York yelpers on Monday evening. With perfect temperatures and dusk approaching, the truly preppy set of the savviest foodies and viral vocalists on Yelp arrived in style for the VIP hour at the Randall's Island Golf Center cum Yelp Country Club just a hop, skip and a free WiroLimo shuttle ride away from Manhattan. Once they got first dibs at the goodies more masses of yelperific locals flowed past the club's exclusive red ropes…er tables to discover what Cassandra M could only describe as the "magical tent" and here's why…

With Eddie's Pizza Truck serving up slices and The Taco Truck turning out tacos via their mobile taqueria, guests didn't get far before filling up. Fortunately, yelpers have hefty appetites since the 4000 Sq Foot tent, glittering with lanterns and lights was filled to the brim with NYC's top-rated eateries serving up oodles of samples from their menu…

And when all that chewing worked up a thirst Fire Island Beer, Honest Tea, Slane Castle Whiskey, Crispin Cider, Bootlegger 21 Vodka, Maestro Dobel Diamond Tequila, Hanger 1 Vodka, and Original Sin Cider (say that three times fast!) served up some seriously sassy drinks!

Those who weren't teetering and ready to tee off after a round about the tent took a walk to the two-tiered driving range to hit some balls aimed at the Triborough Bridge. Back on the lawn One Brick's charitable volunteers raffled off fun prizes and got the games going with bocce, bean bag toss and even a rousing round of Jarts. Two mini-golf courses ensured hours of elite-ist antics while free batting cages gave yelpers a chance to take a baseball bat to any Monday blues. Back in the tent, Roosevelt Dime kicked things up a notch with some swinging jug-band tunes as New York yelpers danced the night away.
