Come Under the Big Top with Yelp Columbus!

Come one, come all! Yelp Columbus Elites and their guests were treated to a night of carnival craziness that included eight amazing sponsors at one visionary venue for Under the Big Top with Yelp at Wild Goose Creative, which is an organization and creative space that supports, encourages, and promotes all forms of art and artists in Columbus.

From caricature portraits by Steve Campbell, to dip-your-own (local!) caramel apples from Local Matters and Chef Laura, this elite party delivered all sorts of artsy amusement. "It had all the dressings of my favorite kind of event," relishes Matthew B.

Vegan treats were dished out by Pattycake Bakery and Rad Dog! served their famous meatless hot dogs. Miffed, but delighted, Meredith R thought "those tofurkey dealies really tasted a lot like hot dogs!" She continues, "What really blew me away though, was that chocolate chip cookie I got from Pattycake. That amazing circle of chocolaty goodness was so moist and chewy that when I opened it up, pieces just fell right off into my hands."

Meanwhile, Genre Creative kept yelpers smiling at the digital photobooth (available for rental!) and Alison from Fuse Factory  lit up the room with LED balloons. If you got your photo taken at the Genre Creative photobooth with – or without – a LED balloon, go to, find client login under photography and enter the word Yelp to download or order prints.

Finally, what carnival would be complete without popcorn and slushies! Gratefully, Pam's Popcorn came through with individualized bags of her iconic Columbus Mix and Margarita Man kept the good times rollin' (perfect for summer fests) with cups of free-flowing margaritas and rum punch. Jimmy Buffet would be jealous.
